Asthma Overview

Asthma is a common long term inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs.[2] It is characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm.[3] Symptoms include episodes of wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.[4] These episodes may occur a few times a day or a few times per week.

I Just Found Out The FDA Pulled AsthmaNefrin Off The Shelves
60 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...

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...

Theophylline discontinued
213 Replies RSS
I have been theophylline er is being discontinued. Is this true? Have taken 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 back order due to ...

I had a upper respitory infection. Had to take prednisone for 3 rounds then started symbicort. I was also given rescue inhaler. I have not had to take a puff of that in a month.

It's only been two days but I have 0 breathing problems no tightness. No wheezing. Some mucus but it's clear and I get full breaths...

Bronkaid Tablets
84 Replies RSS
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...

round yellow pill with "P" imprint
4 Replies RSS
I found an unmarked glass prescription bottle filled with small round yellow pills. One side has a "P" imprint, the other side is just scored. Ive searched and am not finding it anywhere!! Help please!! ## Hello, Dee! How are you? If it was a glass bottle, then these are most likely old pills, because glass is no longer used. Thus, they may be something that is no longer being manufactured. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else have an idea of what these tablets contain? ## Thank you for looking ive drove myself crazy trying to find this pill! I figured because of them being in a glass bottle that they would be ancient hints why im not finding anything. Not sure where to look for discontinued pills. ## Primatene tablets they'r...
