I asked the pharmacist and he checked and couldn't find any information for it to be used for laryngitis. Have you ever heard of this? I haven't used it yet because it's a steroid and nothing I can find substantiates the use for laryngitis. Answered by Vina Haaby 1 month ago.

frankly if i were instead you i will first ask the doc why then if i wasn't convinced i would stop taking it may be he is making trial research for the company or have certain business with such company Answered by Reatha Farwell 1 month ago.

I agree with the crusader. Laryngitis is a strain of the vocal cords and Asmanex is indeed used for asthma. I would not have filled the prescription without clarification from the prescriber too. Answered by Allen Argetsinger 1 month ago.

I've never heard of that drug being used for laryngitis. However, I understand what you physician is trying to do. Laryngitis is inflammation of the larynx. The Asmanex Twisthaler decreases inflammation. So, I guess he is hoping it will help with the inflammation. However, if you taking the medication correctly, it won't go into your larynx, but into your lungs. Answered by Freddy Cease 1 month ago.

That is definately a little strange. Personally, I wouldn't fill the script until re-checking back with the doctor and have him explain the rationale for using this drug for laryngitis. The pharmacist was correct--it is used for asthma. Answered by Mitsue Gavinski 1 month ago.

to be honest I have done so much searching on this question for you and cannot find any reason for this to be prescribed for laryngitis.

Asthma is an allergy and is triggered by something. The best non medication treatment for asthma is learning your triggers and avoiding them. Common triggers are smoke, dust, mold, mildew, plants, dust mites, pets and grass/weeds. If you can not figure our your triggers, you may need to see an allergist and have allergy screening done. This may point out your triggers. The National Asthma Prevention Program and the Expert Panel of Diagnosis and Management of Asthma both agree if you have to use a prescription inhaler such as albuterol more then two time per week, your asthma is NOT in control and you will need a prescription controller medication. Controller medications are steroids (Asthmacort Asthmanex, Flovent, Pulmocort), Leukotriene modifier (Singulair, Aculade, Zyflo) or mast cell stabilizers (Cromolyn sodium, Intal, Tilade). You may want to talk to your doctor about several strong controller medications and maybe Xolair shots. If you want a proven, all-natural way to cure your asthma, without having to pay for useless medications with harmful side-effects, then this is the most important page you'll ever read.

Answered by Bud Norskog 1 month ago.

The proventil has been around the longest. They all have side affects that you may or may not experience. The best one to answer your questions on medications is your pharmacist. If you use the VA, try the va pharmacist or call any drug store and ask to speak with the pharmacist. They are the real experts. Then when you start using the inhalers be conscious of anything that changes with you medically as it may be side affects. Answered by Nova Soliday 1 month ago.

There aren't any cheap inhalers. All the inhalers are brand only. Your insurance might have a preferred one though. Answered by Emogene Hendricksen 1 month ago.


Are inhaled asthma medications safe during pregnancy?
Thanks for all the help so far. I already take zyrtec and singulair for allergies, so that base is covered. It's really just the day to day maitenance that I'm worried about since I don't really have specific triggers to my attacks. Asked by Marty Pulkkinen 1 month ago.

I am about five weeks pregnant and have been taking asmanex twisthaler for about 3 years now for maintenance. I am concerned that continuing with my inhaler could harm the baby, however if I stop taking the medication that my asthma attacks will start again. My doctor said it was basically up to me and that most women go on to have healthy pregnancies on inhaled steroids but there are also risks since they are category c drugs. I'm just wondering if anyone has been in this situation and could give me some insight. I just don't know what to do. Answered by Joy Grigoreas 1 month ago.

steroid inhalers for maintenance are not safe.. at least thats what my doc told me (ive had asthma since i was 9 and im 25 now) emergency inhalers are okay used only as needed. you just need to take it easy and try to stay out of attacks.. if you have allergy induced asthma my doc also said zyrtek was safe to take during pregnancy as long as you dont exceed 1 every 24 hours( which is the directions anyways) but if you already have thin cervical mucus i wouldnt take it. since it thins your mucus membranes. also i know prednisone for asthma attacks are not suppose to be okay in pregnancy either.. good luck to you hun.

i've got self assurance your discomfort. i've got had allergies for 14 years now and have considered a number of medical doctors. in certainty, there is no oftentimes occurring treatment for allergies on the 2nd. however the indicators could be prevented. It extremely relies upon on what motives your brother's allergies. Mine is in many circumstances dirt and warm climate. yet i think of the extensive-unfold approach is making use of the administration inhaler. I cured my allergies the organic way?

Please stop. The corticosteroid can transfer to your baby, or lower your leukotrienes that your immune system makes, which can mean leukocytes and neutrophils cannot protect your baby. Answered by Everett Bugenhagen 1 month ago.

I need help with my asthma, I have had it all my life. I am currently taking Singulair and Foradil and Asmanex Twisthaler (220mg) Oh and also the rescue inhaler. I used to be on Advair but it hadn't been working for me.I was diaganosed with severe asthma recently after being in the ER. I take vitamin supplements such as Querciten and Bromelain also Ginko biloba and Cod liver oil. Can you give me any ideas that might help? Do you know any at home remedies? Or other good supplements? please help! Answered by Angelyn Lind 1 month ago.

Hello, I too have asthma with a vengeance! I was just switched by my pulmonary Dr. to Zyrtec 10mg from Singulair, he said that sometimes singulair works better for younger patients in their teens and not as much for a person in their 20-30's. I also just switched to Azmacort which is helping, I am not using my rescue inhaler like I was... If you have carpet tear it out! I have been working on removing all my carpet for the past two years, it is helping. you can put in laminate floors like Pergo, or wood. You may try a room purifier, they are costly so start with one in your bedroom first. Also, wash your sheets in HOT water once a week, do not have down or feather pillows. Believe me, I have been at my wits end with finding solutions to help my asthma and it is so depressing. Watch out for the steroids, I have gained 40 lbs on those and they still did not keep the inflammation under control. I am just now trying to walk and exercise for the first time in two years (my asthma has been the controller in my life for a while) I am now fighting back, I hope! When I am having a really bad day breathing I do try to drink some alcohol (not beer with yeast & don't get wasted) that seems to keep me calm. Also keep your filters clean and keep all pets outside especially during high allergy season. I would watch supplements, try to eat healthy instead, and have someone else mow the yard (or else where a mask) Good luck, I really love my Azmacort I can actually take a deep breath without sounding whispy! Answered by Easter Shindo 1 month ago.

both of my sons have asthma the oldest is on Pulmicort turbo haler 2x daily , Zrytec 10mg daily Xopenex neb 4x daily The little one is on Singular 1 daily Advair daily Xopenex neb 3x day both use xopenx rescue inhalers also. We try to limit the amount of fatty or fried foods and as many preservatives as possible. I clean house with vinegar baking soda and some times bleach. as they a sensitive to chemicals. On house cleaning day both children are sent to the sitters so that they are not exposed to flying dust. I was told that stuffed animals and carpet would make their asthma worse so we have gotten rid of both. I was told that Chihuahua dogs would lessen or take the asthma away. I do not know if this is true however I did buy both boys a Chihuahua pup and their asthma has gotten better. I think it's more the fact that the pups will sit in their laps and play during breathing treatments which makes the kids laugh thus causing them to breath the medicine in deeper and since they are distracted they actually will stay on the machine for a full treatment without boredom. Who knows ? Not me but I am just glad something is working for my guys Answered by Fumiko Mowers 1 month ago.

Dear Emmie, I, too, take Singulair, Foradil and I use Qvar. It is an inhaled steroid and is better for me than Advair...I am also on a multivitamin and an extra Vitamin C tab...Please be very very careful about taking supplements - they can be more trouble than they are worth...Please follow the advise of your Respiratory doctor,and remember to drink a LOT of water (and a little booze !),,,,,,,,,,,,And PLEASE remember to PRAY Answered by Lorette Bolstad 1 month ago.

please please please try cutting cows milk out of your diet! Alternatives are goats milk and soya milk or even oat milk (all available in supermarkets) Just cut it out completly for 2 weeks and see if it makes any difference. Cows milk is very hard to digest and is high in lactose this can cause headaches, eczma, and can worsen asthma and many other diseases and disorders. Also if you get a chance get a food allergy test many other foods can cause these problems too. please trust me i speak from experience! Answered by Nidia Luckner 1 month ago.


Asthma question - help please!?
I'm 6'1" and about 185 --- and he said if I have asthma, its probably pretty mild... Asked by Edgardo Kassouf 1 month ago.

Hi - I've had a cough for about 5 years, that comes with no other symptons - except shortness of breath and dizziness if I physically exert myself. I went to the doctor today, and he diagnosed me with asthma. He then gave me a free sample, called a Asmanex Twisthaler. It is 110 mcg. I looked it up online and it says that 110 mcg is the dosage level for children 4-12... So why am I taking such a low dosage? Is this normal for samples...? I'm 23 and most websites I've seen say that I should be taking 220 - 440 mcg's per day. So I'm just confused about what my doctor is doing. And, of course, I cant ask him these questions unless I book another appointment... Thanks! Answered by Beata Jacquet 1 month ago.

you should try it first because the doctor probably doesnt want to put u on a real strong dosage because this might work for u just fine. so you should be fine. just try it and if it helps keep using it. if it doesnt help. go back to doc. Answered by Ria Kueny 1 month ago.

I may not be of any help but I know from taking other types of prescriptions a lot of times doctors will start you off at the lowest possible dosage. You can't really go by age anyway because it really depends on your weight and how bad your symptoms are. Some people respond to very little medications while others need a higher dosage. It's better to take the littlest amount that works than taking more than you actually need. I would give it a try and see if it helps. Answered by Frank Schuepfer 1 month ago.
