Azmacort Withdrawal Effect On Husband

My husband had been on Azmacort since 1987. His condition before Azmacort was guarded at best. With Azmacort, he was able to live an active life traveling world-wide space available
(22 year AF retiree). When we moved away from our Dr. to a retirement center, the new Dr. we found immediately tried to put him on any or all of the Hollywood drugs but we refused. In June, our mail-order pharmacy told us it is no longer being manufactured. We were forced to experiment with Advair, Duoneb-Combivent, Symbicort, etc and he has been in steady decline in health with more episodes requiring prednisone (very hard on him) and antibiotics. We are using Mucinex daily, pocket inhaler of Proventil in multiple puffs and multiple treatments. Today I was going to try to get Azmacort online when I learned it was the FDA and the CFC's that took it off the market. No wonder our present Dr. was so sneering last May when we asked for a new prescription..he knew it wasn't available.
We have supported recycling, been as green as possible, but why haven't they found a new propelant like they did with Albuterol? If it is the CFC's that is the problem, not the drug, who's getting the payoff..the other drug companies with all their TV advertising raising the cost of drugs instead of saving lives!

Yes, it has been discontinued and I am sorry to read of the problems this is causing.

I doubt, however, that the doctor was sneering, because he was asked for a new prescription for it. It was more than likely that they were upset that your husband had refused to try the other treatment options that were offered, what you called the 'Hollywood Drugs.'

A doctor can only view such a person as an uncooperative patient.

If you cannot work well with the current doctor, the only thing I can suggest is finding a new one.


Have any other medications helped him, at all?
