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 ...

Xolair neurological reaction
4 Replies RSS
I have a brain injury due to an unfortunate meeting with a moose and my car. I was doing very well. I actually went skiing in February. My last xolair injection was march 1. On march 2, I had to go to the ER because of anaphylaxis. By march 6, I couldn't walk well. I was admitted to the rehab unit at the hospital for 12 days. I am using a walker to get around. Has anyone else had reaction similar, or a neurological reaction? ## Hi, Michele! I am very sorry about what happened to you. Anaphylaxis is actually the main adverse reaction listed for Xolair and it is likely that it is what caused the neurologic problems. Thus, they are basically an indirect result of the Xolair and a direct result of the anaphylactic reaction. Learn more Xolair details here. Anaphylaxis has been known to o...

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.

Breathing Problem Solution

Hi Dr. I am Mayuri Dutta from kolkata. I am just 16 years old. My board exams are too near. And am suffering from breathing problem for about nearly 1 month ago. I dont know what am i suffering from. Doctor said that am not suffering from asthma. Because of my exams i cant go for any ecg or anything like that. Doctor has asked me to have #Deriphyllin . It is a solution of my breathing problem, but not a too long solution. Sometimes i think that it has become my mania that i cannot hang out without those pills. My parents say that i shouldnot have the pills so frequent. But i can't do without the pills. So my question is that is it injurious to health having pills too frequent as my parents say? Please help me. It has become a huge obstruction for my good results as well i think! THA...

Discussion on breathing problem
3 Replies RSS
I am having hereditary chronic asthma. I am 40 and otherwise physically very fit. I attend gym and go on walks, keeping a very good lifestyle, am intelligent and enjoy good conversation, am a hotelier (director of two hotels, manage one of them), unmarried and not interested in marriage. I am on inhalers which have side effects on throat. I would like to know if my malady can be cured or at least alleviated up to 80 percent? ## Attu, I do not know to what extent your asthma can be alleviated. I can only tell you about two things I know of from experience in regards to my Mom who has COPD/Emphysema. She is nearly 68 and is an ex-smoker, but quit smoking way back in 1982. She started showing problems with her breathing, as in being short-winded and coughing, somewhere around 5 years ago. ...

Duavent Inhaler
4 Replies RSS
Who should use this medicine, dosage and how long? ## Hi Fran, This inhaler is used for the management of reversible bronchospasm associated with obstructive airway diseases (eg, bronchial asthma). It is also prescribed for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on a regular inhaled bronchodilator who continue to have evidence of bronchospasm and who require a second bronchodilator. Dosage information and length of treatment is indicated to be provided by your doctor or pharmacist on a case by case basis. NOTE: I was able to locate dosage info for the liquid version of this medication, but I would think liquid has completely different administration instructions than an inhaler. I hope this info helps! ## When will this inhaler be available again in the market? Its b...

I have been taking this medication for 5 month and I have experience a lot of hair loss. Spoke with a friend who is taking the medication as well and has experienced tremendous hair loss. She has used Redkin Hair Products, with good success, she has managed to recoup much of her hair. Has anyone else experienced hair loss? ## I too have had hair loss. My hair is very thin now and I haven't touched a razor to my legs in months. ## yeah. I'm 16 and i have. ## Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of side effect information available on this drug, yet.
