Asthma Overview

Asthma is a common long-term inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs.[3] It is characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm.[10] Symptoms include episodes of wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.[2] These episodes may occur a few times a day or a few times per week.[3] Depending on the person, they may become worse at night or with exercise.[3] Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and ...

I've been suffering from regular colds due to allergies. My doctor has advised me to take montecope tablets. Is there any side effects of taking these tablets regularly? ## Okay, allergies would not cause a cold, they are completely different things, since a cold is caused by a type of virus and has nothing to do with allergies, though they may cause some similar symptoms, such as runny nose and nasal congestion.

I Just Found Out The FDA Pulled AsthmaNefrin Off The Shelves
70 Replies RSS
I've been sitting here crying because the pharmacist just told me that AsthmaNefrin was taken off the market. I look on the internet and it's been recalled by the FDA because it has caused chest pain and has many complaints. This decision by the FDA will kill people like me because I get a paradoxical reaction to Albuterol and Levalbuterol. They work completely different. Different drug. If I go to the emergency because I can't breathe, they save me with ephinephrine, the same drug that AsthmaNefrin is. And look in any drug book, Albuterol and Levalbuterol has worse side-effects than Epinephrine. I have to have my rescue inhaler with me everyday. The Primatene tablets are horrible, causing extreme anxiety and don't mix with my antidepressant. I was on cortisone for years...

Surprising side effects
6 Replies RSS
Started using Symbicort with aerochamber couple days before Txgiving, in accordance with Dr.'s advice (first time user) - I've lost 1/3 of breathing capacity and developed asthma from exposure to toxic mold. First time I used it, felt trembley, nervous - like I was on amphetamines. However, did relieve tightness in chest and improved breathing. Persisted in spite of side effects - as days went on, Symbicort was seeming to help less and less. Also, the tone of my voice changed and was tremulous. Yesterday was the straw that broke the camel's back - I felt short of breath, very nervous and shaky - to the point where I considered a visit to the ER. Heart was also racing. Next day called the doc - explanation was "some people have a paradoxical reaction" (my interpretati...

AdVair use past expiration date?
5 Replies RSS
I have an inhaler of AdVair unopened with an expiration date of 4/2013 Can I still use it? ## Hello, Helene! How are you? Thats a year past the expiration date, so it is most likely no longer effective. It would be best to just dispose of it and pick up a new prescription. Since this just uses a powdered medication that you inhale, it's going to degrade much faster than most other forms would. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks ! ## Its july 2016 nbutut my advair expred 01/16 can i still use it ## I accidentally throw away my new advair and have being using my 5 year expired medicine. Should I be concern about it ## Advair disc still in foil expire 9/15 still good?

Can anyone asist me with its location?? ## try phamanabolics . net about €1 per tab .. reliable , always arrives !! ## During junior and high school, I experienced fairly chronic asthma but I was able to participate in jv and varsity football and track, lettering in both.

I have been taking montelukast, generic for Singular, 1 tablet daily, for slightly less than a month. I also use Advair for asthma, which I have had for many years. Within the past week I have begun having severe, unrelenting laryngitis and within the past 3 days an unbearable itching and tingling in my left wrist and hand. I am also very tired and sleepy and have no energy. Could these be side effects of the montelukast? ## Hello, Shari! How are you? The laryngitis and fatigue are known side effects, but I'm not finding anything about the itching and tingling. Is there a visible rash, at all? Do you have topical skin allergies? ## About using singular and Advair. The Advair is responsible for my cramping spasms. I too ha e nu.bness in hand. I now have periphial nerve damage. It see...
