Why can’t Beclovent be used to stop an asthma attack in progress?
Asked by Shaniqua Shelling 2 years ago.
Beclovent is a steroid and does not provide immediate relief ... it is used to treat inflammation ... and the effect is not immediate .... In addition ... the Asthma attack could be caused by smooth muscle contraction (bronchospasm) ... this will not relieve that either ... that would be relieved by a beta agonist such as Albuterol (Ventolin) Answered by Josh Pasquel 2 years ago.
Pleaseeee help me pass my class....?
why Beclomethasone (becloment) must be taken everyday if the patient is not having asthma attack everyday. ????
Asked by Tempie Hessell 2 years ago.
Beclovent ... or beclomethasone diproprionate is used for long term prevention of inflammation of the airways .... This helps dampen the effect of an allergic response from either intrinsic or extrinsic asthma .... Because it is considered a long term treatment and not meant for immediate relief ... it is used to ensure that your Asthma doesnt flare up .... If your not having issues ... it means its working!

You should vacuum and clean your house extensively and stay away from hair spray and cleaners around your house you may have to have the health care system help you with daily routines. Answered by Neta Aloia 2 years ago.
You left out one important thing, you failed to mention where you live as to what state. I worked with a fellow many years ago that had a daughter that had asthma. The doctor told him to move to AZ as the climate was drier and warmer, so he did. Are you sure it is asthma and not chronic bronchitis, I worked with a fellow in Michigan and he had the same problem in the winter time. Had a problem breathing, short of breath, I did about 90%of the work as he couldn't. Answered by Temika Chancey 2 years ago.
Have you seen a doctor? Usually they will proscribe some sort of inhaled corticosteroid for your asthma or possibly bronchodilators. Have you gotten sick recently? Wheezing and Shortness of breath are common among asthma patients, but you mentioned fever and chills which makes me think of some sort of respiratory infection that your body is trying to fight off. That infection may also worsen your asthma symptoms. Answered by Ethel Peavy 2 years ago.

I was prescribed albuterol, and I had the horrbible side effects of rapid hearbeat, and nausea. It was awful. Are there any asthma meds that DON'T cause this?
Asked by Lasonya Stever 2 years ago.
I have tachycardia and PVC's (an irregular heartbeat that's too fast), and I have asthma. I take albuterol (because i can't afford advair) but albuterol causes my heart to race ( like 190-210 beats a minute). There ARE medications that can be used instead of albuterol that will lower the need for albuterol -- some of these medications are advair, beclovent, and azmacort. Long-lasting inhalers. Short-term inhalers such as albuterol, metoproterenol., and pirbuterol all have a risk of increasing the heart-rate, it's because of the way that they work in the heart and lungs. Using one of the long-acting inhalers will decrease your need for the rapid acting inhalers, and thus decrease the side effects. Another option is to add a medication called a beta-blocker to your treatment regimen . . . but, there's a problem. Medicines like albuterol help the "beta's" because when the 'beta's" are helped, we breathe more easily (but, our heart-rate goes up, too). If you add a beta-blocker (like a low dose of metoprolol) it means that your albuterol will be less effective . . . and your asthma may get worse (because beta-blockers block the "beta's" . . .and the "beta's" help us to breathe more easily). Answered by Elden Gadsen 2 years ago.
Xopenex is an alternative bronchodilator medication that is suppose to have less cardiac side effects than Albuterol. It is more expensive though but it is not to be taken as often as Albuterol so it all evens out in the end if used correctly. You might also want to try using an Advair MDI, which is a twice a day inhaler. It is a combination of Serevent (which is a long acting time released bronchodilator) and Flovent (an inhaled steroid that helps prevent inflammation from occurring). With the regular use of Advair, most asthma sufferers find that they do not need to use their rescue meds (Albuterol or Xopenex) as often. I hope this helps. Answered by Wai Cliatt 2 years ago.
i suffer from bad asthma and i have no health insurance. ive found that the over the counter Primamist inhaler works, sometimes even better than Albuterol. These cost around 20 bucks from a drug store. Albuterol is around the same price if you can manage a script for it. If you dont have health insurance, it is sometimes a hassle to even book a doctors appointment since you have no coverage. some places wont even consider seeing you because of this. (BULLSH*T IN MY OPINION!) HOWEVER, emergency rooms cannot deny you treatment. In the event of a serious asthma attack, they will put you on nebuilizer breathing treatments and give you a prescription for Albuterol to take home with you(or sometimes even give you a take home inhaler there.) if you dont have health insurance and cant book an appointment--- go to the E.r. and explain your situation-- whether you are dealing with an asthma attack right then and there OR looking for an albuterol inhaler to stock up on. just know- this is time consuming and you will get billed in the mail $$$, but for uninsured people we really have no choice. some hospitals offer free EMERGENCY ROOM care if you meet the income requirements and you will receive free emergency care if eligible and not end up with a huge bill. if you have the time and your asthma isnt urgent right now, look around for community health centers in your area. some offer sliding fee scales and/or free treatment for uninsured people or people who are unable to pay for meds and appointments. you may be able to get your albuterol script and treatment from here. i am yet to try this. hot showers and steam help too, but if your asthma is gettin very bad, none of these methods will work that great except going to the E.R. for breathing treatments on breathing machines. good luck Answered by Augustine Bentson 2 years ago.
Yah, actually I just complained to my doctor about the same thing. (I told her I won't take it because it makes me so shaky) She told me that with my heart condition, I should not be on albuterol because of the rapid heart beat it causes. She prescribed Xopenex. I ised it a few times so far, and it does not have the terrible side effects. Also, I noticed that if I take albuterol through a nebulizer, the side effects aren't as bad. I don't especially like doing the "neb" though. Answered by Shayne Denmon 2 years ago.
I use Spiriva as a once a day med, with albuterol as a rescue med ( Like 2 times in the last 4 months) I had trouble with Xopenex, Combivent, Flovent , Atrovent I use asmenex as my steroid Just a different set of stuff Answered by Jimmie Donnick 2 years ago.
yes there is a medicine called Xopenex (from Sepracor) which comes as an inhaler or in a nebulizer solution- the generic name is Leva-albuterol- (the right side of albuterol)- has all the effects without the side effects. Ask your MD for a prescription -he may even be able to get samples for you Answered by Romelia Wanger 2 years ago.

My 1st son will be 3 in May, and while I was pregnant with him, I had to get off my Advair 100/50. That, to me, is the only thing that helps my asthma the best. But I had to get off of it for his sake. I'm now a month pregnant, and have to call my pulmonary doctor and tell him about it. But since 2004, has there been a new medicine like Advair that I can take while being pregnant, or have they done more studies showing that Advair wouldn't harm the baby? I know I have to ask my doctor, but I like to have extra knowledge or info before I call. If there is anything that I could suggest to my doctor, I would like any info, thanks! Answered by Shoshana Methe 2 years ago.
Advair is a preventative, so you want another preventative until you can return to the advair. It is true, advair is not recommended during pregnancy. However, there are some drugs that are considered safe for asthma in pregnancy: pulmicort, vanceril, beclovent or qvar. These are great at preventing severe attacks. You might want to talk to your doctor about those. I am most familiar with pulmicort so listed it first. Congrats on the pregnancy! Answered by Muoi Ozawa 2 years ago.
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.
