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.

smaller than an asprin and makes you want to get up and go, fast ## I am not sure what you are asking, if you need me to identify your I will need more information about the pill. If you need me to locate a drug or it's ingredients, I will need more informaiton as well. Please post back so i can assist you with your question. ## It's about half the size of an asprin, it's white, plain on one side, an X or a cross on the other side. That's all there is to it. ## The only pill I could locate with just an X on it is Sennosides 17 mg, but it's brown and round. I will keep trying to see if I can find any more. ## those pills are probably no longer available. we used to buy them in the 70's for $20 per 100. 2 in the morning and you were ready for anything including los...

I would like to get off it as my asthma is manageable...Are there any physical withdrawals to worry about? ## I also have questions on drug interaction with hydrocodone 5/500...If anyone would like to discuss this with me, please respond. ## Symbicort contains Budesonide and Formoterol.

Theophylline discontinued
236 Replies RSS
I have been told that theophylline er is being discontinued. Is this true? I have taken it for years for asthma. ## Hello, Terri! How are you? I've not found anything about it being discontinued. Where you told that by a pharmacist or did it come from some other source? There were a couple that were discontinued back in 2003, due to the fact that it's rarely prescribed, anymore. But I've not read anything in my various resources that the current one available is being discontinued. Though, a doctor or pharmacist may, admittedly, have more updated information than I do. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and dry mouth. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## From what I've been told, all strengths of Theophylline is on bac...

Bought in Mexico, so in spanish ambophyllina must be. a small white pill with a line on one side down the middle. ## I use Ambophyllina. It is prescribed to me by a Doctor in Mexacali, Mexico. I use it to contol lung problems. What are the risks associated with the pill? ## My mother-in-law has taken this pill (Ambophyllina) for 20 years and it really helps her lung problems. She recently had to go without for 6 weeks and she has had a terrible time with really severe asthma. Today she was able to take the pill again and we are hoping the asthma attacks are over. ## Sorry, foreign pills are not regulated like American items are, and finding information on them is very difficult. So I have no idea what this is for or what it does. ## I get this pill from a Doctor in Mexicali for my Rheum...

What is the substitute of Tedral SA tablets?
6 Replies RSS
I am male 55 years and consuming two tablets of Tedral SA since last 30 years. During this period, I never faced any inconvenience and attack of asthma in any type of weather or circumstances. Now this tablet is not available in market. I need good substitution to this tablet with the same ingredients. ## From what I understand, there is NO substitute for the old Tedral formulation. Tedral contained some phenobarb, which helped, but didn't really work, to neutralize the stimulant side effects of theophylline and ephedrine. Ephedrine isn't available anymore and the combo of those two drugs caused "speedy" feelings. It's more typical that you'd be prescribed a rescue inhaler for acute asthma attacks (ProAir = albuterol is common) than any oral med. Works faster wit...

i m suffering regular cold due to allergies. Doctor have advised me 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. That said, Monticope contains Montelukast and Levocetirizine, they are most commonly used to treat allergy symptoms. And all medications carry the risk of side effects, by taking this, you may experience: nausea, dizziness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I get wheezing prob where breathing become difficult And My doctor recommeneds montecope and said it can be taken one tab...

Xolair Hair Loss & Joint Pain
6 Replies RSS
I am taking Xolair for autoimmune disease. I have told my doctor about my severe hair loss and he suggested that it is not because of the Xolair, but instead autoimmune response. I, of course, think it is because of the Xolair have I read a lot of what other people taking the drug have said. Is there any information I can point my doctor to in hopes of getting better/different treatment. ## Hello, Mel! How are you doing? I am very sorry about the problems that you're having. Your doctor just needs to look at the detail prescribing information. It is all listed in there among the side effect information. You may also experience nausea and fatigue. Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## Hi. I have been on xolair for 9 months. I started shedding 5 months in, and it hasn't stop...

Bronkaid Tablets

Are we sure that bronkaid tablets haven't been taken off the market in some areas? I went to 3 different drug stores today, in Columbus County, North Carolina, to purchase, and there was an empty shelf where they once were. Not even the pharmacists could say whether they had been discontinued. ## Bronkaid is not being carried in drug stores in Columbia city indiana ## Thanks for your kind response. ## Bronkaid was discontinued as of 12/31/11 due to a phase out of these types of medications. Have you tried consulting your doctor about using an alternative medication? ## Actually, we have not. The medicines are for my wife, who has had bouts with asthma her entire life. It seems that once we find something that works, it is discontinued. The physicians advice, I suppose, is always goo...
