Answered by Celeste Thames 2 years ago.
Hi, having worked for the manufacturer of Foradil for too many years than I care to remember, you have to be aware that there are ALWAYS side effects to every medication. "SIDE EFFECTS: Trembling, nervousness, headache, dizziness, dry mouth, nausea, tiredness, trouble sleeping, may occur. If these symptoms persist or worsen, inform your doctor promptly. Tell your doctor immediately if you have any of these unlikely but serious side effects: chest pain, fast breathing, muscle weakness or cramping. Tell your doctor immediately if you have any of these highly unlikely but very serious side effects: fainting, fast/irregular heartbeat. In the unlikely event that you have an allergic reaction to this drug, seek medical attention immediately. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: swelling, dizziness, rash, itching, trouble breathing. Rarely, Formoterol can cause a worsening of breathing problems (e.g. paradoxical bronchospasm) that may be life threatening. If this occurs, immediately seek medical attention. To relieve dry mouth, suck on (sugarless) hard candy or ice chips; chew (sugarless) gum, drink water or use saliva substitute. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist." I would suggest that if you are REALLY itching, you want to stop taking this medicine and call your prescribing doctor IMMEDIATELY, you are having, what could turn out to be a life-threatening reaction. The sleeplessness is not that much to worry about, many times it's just because your body is not used to the medication. But...I would worry about the itching, since that is systemic (meaning it's all through your body). Good luck! Answered by Deja Roosa 2 years ago.
My brother is an asthmatic and after ten years his asthma has shown no sign of improving. He has been to several doctors but they didn't help much. 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.

I have COPD how does cortison help?

Asked by Ronald Grosjean 2 years ago.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, charaterised by hyperreactive airways, resulting in narrowing of airways and resultant shortness of breath. There is often inflammation and swelling of the tissues of your airways (especially at times of infections by virus) which exacerbate the existing airway obstruction. Cortisone is a steroid medication which acts as an anti-inflammatory, thereby reducing the inflammation and swelling of the airways. Answered by Jannette Gonzaliz 2 years ago.
I also have a breathing problem, and it came on suddenly. I was told I had adult-onset asthma, then emphysema, three years later, getting worse, a second opinion at Mt Sinai in NYC was sarcoidosis, a disease of inflammation that prohibits deep inhalation because of inability to exhale enough (obstruction) For the sarcoid I was put on Prednisone, a steroid (cortisone) with nasty side effects that is supposed to combat the inflammation of Sarcoid, thus helping you breathe - didn't do much for me, so I had to use supplemental oxygen. I really can empathize with you. After MT SINAI, I went to Yale Medical, and then Mayo Clinic -both suggested Bronchiolitis. And at Mayo I found out my heart valve (Mitral) was worse than I previously was told, and it could have caused my whole lung condition. If you haven't had a second opinion, PLEASE DO! And make sure your HEART is looked at, it can cause pulmonary hypertension and/or back pressure on the oxygenated blood coming in from the lungs. After Mayo I tapered off Prednisone, current meds are Advair, Albuterol (rescue med dilates (opens) airways VERY quickly) and Atrovent (similar to Spiriva), was on Foradil several months - no help. It's my understanding that inhaled cortizones are Advair and Flovent, not Spiriva or Foradil. Good luck to you. Answered by Magnolia Marmion 2 years ago.
I have a friend who has copd too and she was on oxygen too and that help her with the medicine the doctor gave her. one thing that will help if you are over weight then try and lose some of this weight and that will also help with the breathing so your body will not have to work so hard. i feel for you and hope that this helps Answered by Susy Standrod 2 years ago.
I to have COPD. I am on Sririva but have never heard of the other one. Great disease huh? Most days I would rather die, but I continue to wake up...... I am going to join a support group and see is that helps. I always figured it would be depressing. Answered by Hilma Pulk 2 years ago.

Can someone tell me an alternative to the asthma drug Adviar?
I do not want to take this anymore.. Please help me out..Thanks!
Asked by Graham Offermann 2 years ago.
Foradil and Asthmanex. They will do what Advair does for you. The Foradil is the long lasting bronchiodilator and the Asthmanex is the corticosteroid. Good Luck. Make sure you rinse your mouth out after the Asthmanex. Answered by Carman Stoney 2 years ago.
Try Singulair. Is your Asthma controlled? If you need a long acting brochodilator you can get on Serevent. If you want a combination then you can use Combivent. If you do not want a inhaler - go with Singulair or Accolate. I like Singulair. Keep an Albuterol inhaler (ProAir HFA, Ventolin HFA) handy incase you need it acutely. I do not think Asthmatics should be on steroid inhalents for long periods of time as they have a tendency to develop tolerance and also get the side effects of inhaled steroids. The asthma should try to be controlled and managed with short term therapy. Unless you are a bad asthmatic and anything can trigger your attacks. Singulair is a once a daily dosing leukotriene inhibitor. It prevents the body from having a inflammatory response to outside triggers. A lot of asthmatics and allergy sufferers take it and do very well with it. Good luck and I hope this helps. Answered by Cynthia Jaret 2 years ago.
I feel your pain. I've had asthma for 14 years now and have seen several doctors. The truth is, there is no known cure for asthma at the moment. But the symptoms can be prevented. It really depends on what causes your brother's asthma. Mine is usually dust and hot weather. But I think the universal method is using the control inhaler. I cured my Asthma the natural way? Answered by Dani Rainville 2 years ago.
I gave up advair when singulair came out on the market. It's in pill for and most effective when taken at bedtime. No more laryngitis...etc that I got with the advair. Hope this helps. Answered by Page Celi 2 years ago.
There is always the flovent inhaler, asmanex, azmacort, pulmicort and a new product called symbicort which are all corticosteroids that does the same as advair. Answered by Clarence Rugh 2 years ago.

More details: I'm on a trial study of this drug that is combined with an inhaled steriod. They want to release this combination as a new medication and my trial is to see how well they work together. Anyway, I'm having serious throat problems (like it is swollen - the best I can describe it, not just irrated) & my study doc doesn't have an answer. I can feel food & drink every place it touches my esophagus as it goes down. I believe it has to be the floradil (the other is something I've used before & this feeling has only been there since I started this study.) I just wanted to know if anyone else was seeing similar things happen. Answered by Ulrike Aysien 2 years ago.
My daughter has been taking Foradil for several years and not experienced any problems. She likes it a lot better than other things the doctor has prescribed for her.Our biggest problem has been finding a pharmacy that carries it - and now that we have - when we go to pick it up we always have to them them about three times to look in the refrigerator. I would be interested in knowing if there are any long term side effects or other problems with this drug we should be concerned about - so if you are having some please add details. Thank you.

Symbicort contains two medicines pulmicort (steroid) and foradil (bronchodilator). Bronchodilators are known to cause an increase in some people's heart rate. This can cause you to be uncomfortable and be a bit anxious. I would definitely discuss this with your dr. during your next appt. Do you really need it? How bad is your asthma? Do you get an attack more than 2-3 times a week? If not, then you probably don't need to take any preventative meds such as advair or symbicort. All you need is a rescue inhaler such as albuterol or combivent when an attack occurs. Answered by Rosalie Chellis 2 years ago.

Hmmm... Do you live in Canada? Last I heard, that's the only place Symbicort was being used. Why don't you see about using some of the more standard Asthma Combination meds with albuterol (Combivent or DuoNeb) or you could try Advair. Answered by Nancie Bradigan 2 years ago.

Symbicort is made of 2 drugs....pulmicort and foradil. You can check with your doc and see if he can give a prescription for the 2 drugs seperately instead of the combination (symbicort). It is much cheaper that way...from what I remember you can get it for less than 1/2 of what Symbicort would cost. Answered by Shandi Ereaux 2 years ago.

inform your doctor -he can provide you coupons & samples. you can go to www.pparx.org to apply for free/low cost prescriptions. also, your doctor can prescribe a different maintenance medication that will be effective. keep your rescue inhaler handy at all times & see your pulmonologist.
