I am 24 years old and went to the doctor today for breathing problems and high heart rate. The doctor is pretty sure I have asthma and has scheduled additional tests to be sure that is the correct diagnosis. In the meantime, she proscribed me proventil (ambuterol) and i'm supposed to take 2 puffs every 4 hours. I took the first 2 puffs this afternoon and was fine, breathing improved a little but I just took my 2 puffs for this evening and within minutes my hands are shaking uncontrollably. My whole body feels a little shaky. Is this normal? Should I just lay down and try to relax until the trembling goes away or should I go to the e.r.? Answered by Shantell Poskus 2 years ago.

proventil is a broncho-dialator(a mild stimulant)and as such will cause tremmor in sensitive people ,if this becomes bothersome or does not go away with continued use ,consult your health care provider .I have used it for years and ,yes it will make you a bit shakey from time to time ,but you will get used to it after a while ,it 's no big deal unless you are shaking so violently that you can not hold a half glass of water at arms length without spilling it all over the place ,if it hits you that bad call the e.r. first to see if they wish to see you ,but generally ,in time the shakes will subside ,and you will be fine ,ti takes time to get used to a new drug and proventil is no different( you might wish to expand the time between puffs ,to 5 minutes between the first and second puffs,this will get the requsite amount of drug into the system and will not cause the overload that results in the shakes ) Answered by Ivette Desrosier 2 years ago.

Proventil Vs Proair Answered by Rosalyn Coast 2 years ago.

Yesterday my doc told me they're the same and I have used both. I have the exact same side effects with both Proventil and ProAir. I don't have COPD but that's not the only thing these inhalers are prescribed for. They open up the passageways in your lungs and help decrease inflammation every time you take a puff. So you don't wheeze as much and your coughs are productive. Seriously, check their websites and you'll see what I'm talking about. They're the same. Answered by Austin Deporter 2 years ago.

Why my boy of 5 years is not diagnostic with asthma but the doctor prescript proventil?
I have a five years boy, that the doctor told me he is not asthmatic but he give me the prescription for respiratory therapist. Why? I don't like to give him to many Proventil Asked by Markus Lykins 2 years ago.

Proventil (albuterol sulfate) relaxes muscles in the airways to increase airflow to your lungs (helps make it easier to breathe). Is he having a hard time breathing or has a bad cough? Or maybe from excercise (sport maybe)? If so, these would be the leading cause for the perscription, which doesn't necessarily mean he has to have asthma. Shortness of breath could very well be temperary. But if he doesn't have these problems, I would ask your son's doctor for reasoning. Answered by Loree Osaile 2 years ago.

maybe he has an UPPER RESPIRATORY INFECTION OR CYSTIC FIBROSIS YOU NEED TO ASK THE MEDICAL DOCTOR WHO PRESCRIBED THIS MEDICINE WHY IT WAS PRESCRIBED OBVIOUSLY YOUR CHILD HAD WHEEZING IN LUNGS TO GET THIS MEDICINE PRESCRIBED TO HIM ASK THE DOCTOR WHO PRESCRIBED IT Answered by Angelia Reale 2 years ago.


What's better an albuterol inhaler or a proventil inhaler?
i know that the albuterol inhalers are no longer sold but i want to know which inhaler is better for ME not the dang environment because if the albuterol inhaler is better i want to try and get them back so asthmatics like myself can life longer. Asked by Karolyn Mcclaran 2 years ago.

They are the same. Proventil is also albuterol. Albuterol is the drug name. The only difference is that the traditional albuterol inhalers use chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) as the propellant to deliver the medicine into lungs. Proventil inhalers contain the same medicine (albuterol) and provide the same relief as the traditional CFC inhalers you are used to. Answered by Joye Bartell 2 years ago.

I used to use albuterol, but it's no longer made to protect the environment. Now they have proventil. I feel that albuterol works better than proventil, but it could be just a perception if they have the same med. Answered by Winifred Sanyaro 2 years ago.

albuterol is the generic name for proventil. Same stuff. It also goes by the name Ventolin. One is as good as the other. I hadn't heard about a recall but if it's about the compressed gas in the cartridge, good God they're really going to far with this crap. Sorry, but if they think those little canisters are going to effect the environment they're out of their minds. Answered by Daniela Agular 2 years ago.

I have asthma. i take proventil but i still have trouble breathing, help!?
what should i do i have a dr. appointment coming up anything special i should tell him so he can help fix me? I have trouble breathing at night. it is starting to scare me. Asked by Alverta Emshoff 2 years ago.

I have the same problem. I've been toughing it out for years now, but finally went to a doctor today. They gave me Proventil but as soon as I took a puff I threw up all over my kitchen! Really gross, and I don't think I'll be using the Proventil again. I'll keep taking the Claritin and hope for the best. But my tip from years of living with wheezing and trouble breating is to sleep sitting as upright as possible. When my wheezing is bad I put about 3 pillows under my torso so that I'm propped semi-upright. If that doesn't work I sleep in a recliner chair that doesn't recline very far so that I'm sitting up. It does help me breath, maybe it'll help you. Good luck- having this problem sucks. Answered by Kerrie Morehouse 2 years ago.

I'm very worried!! Answered by Herta Fenninger 2 years ago.

I'll explain what is happening. All CFC inhalers are being phased out by the end of 2008. You will need an HFA inhaler. Proventil is Albuterol, a generic drug. You can get a new prescription for Proventil HFA. Now, HFA inhalers are different. They use a fine mist instead of the harsh spray. They might taste different because the propellant is different.

I suffer from COPD or reactive airway disease and my doctor has prescribed flovent and proventil even?
though I never have breathing problems. I have bronchitis(?) with phlegm buildup that causes me to cough and almost vomit. I have never really understood what is wrong with me. Asked by Pat Screws 2 years ago.

One of the reasons you have COPD is that your airways overreact to virtually everything. They get swollen and the goblet cells produce too much mucous usually out of proportion to the stimulus.They also constrict making air movement more difficult and uneven. Normally ventilation is evenly distributed throughout the lungs. With COPD The air flow is uneven according to how much mucous is where and how much bronchoconstriction is taking place and where. This sets up underventilation of the areas that are essentially blocked. This allows bacteria to grow if there are any there and the airways and alveoli lose there function and can shut down. That's why your doctor has you on Proventil and Flovent. Trying to keep your airways open and not inflamed.And also to keep your mucous thin so it's easier to cough up. The problem being that you can't get enough air behind the mucous to push from the back and expel it. The mucous that you don't cough up simply gets thicker and thicker and just becomes more difficult. You must keep yourself well hydrated. Lots of water. to help with this problem. So you can see why they get frustrated with patients who continue to smoke which just causes the very thing your trying to avoid. God bless. Answered by Rosaria Talone 2 years ago.

Your lungs are overly sensitive to natural and man-made pollutants---likely been this way your whole life, but only NOW does the condition occur more often. Doctors used to label it the "coughing crud". Your best approach is to keep a very tidy clean house and buy a couple of inexpensive, but effective air cleaning machines along your home; there's even a few small model air cleaners for cars as well. If you smoke, you're not helping yourself and it's best you quit. Typically, climatic changes during the early Spring and Fall months are difficulut and you are pressed hard to avoid industrial pollutants. Do keep yourself well hydrated and ask your doctor for breathing treatment meds FREE of steroids. Answered by Jimmie Herklotz 2 years ago.

no, the smoke would react very badly with your lungs. It might do damage even in food. Answered by Sandy Igo 2 years ago.

I have a five years boy, that the doctor told me he is not asthmatic but he give me the prescription for respiratory therapist. Why? I don't like to give him to many Proventil Asked by Daysi Fogo 2 years ago.

Proventil (albuterol sulfate) relaxes muscles in the airways to increase airflow to your lungs (helps make it easier to breathe). Is he having a hard time breathing or has a bad cough? Or maybe from excercise (sport maybe)? If so, these would be the leading cause for the perscription, which doesn't necessarily mean he has to have asthma.

I'll explain what is happening. All CFC inhalers are being phased out by the end of 2008. You will need an HFA inhaler. Proventil is Albuterol, a generic drug. You can get a new prescription for Proventil HFA. Now, HFA inhalers are different. They use a fine mist instead of the harsh spray. They might taste different because the propellant is different.

I suffer from COPD or reactive airway disease and my doctor has prescribed flovent and proventil even?
though I never have breathing problems. I have bronchitis(?) with phlegm buildup that causes me to cough and almost vomit. I have never really understood what is wrong with me. Asked by Dagny Cumber 2 years ago.

One of the reasons you have COPD is that your airways overreact to virtually everything. They get swollen and the goblet cells produce too much mucous usually out of proportion to the stimulus.They also constrict making air movement more difficult and uneven. Normally ventilation is evenly distributed throughout the lungs. With COPD The air flow is uneven according to how much mucous is where and how much bronchoconstriction is taking place and where. This sets up underventilation of the areas that are essentially blocked. This allows bacteria to grow if there are any there and the airways and alveoli lose there function and can shut down. That's why your doctor has you on Proventil and Flovent. Trying to keep your airways open and not inflamed.And also to keep your mucous thin so it's easier to cough up. The problem being that you can't get enough air behind the mucous to push from the back and expel it. The mucous that you don't cough up simply gets thicker and thicker and just becomes more difficult. You must keep yourself well hydrated. Lots of water. to help with this problem. So you can see why they get frustrated with patients who continue to smoke which just causes the very thing your trying to avoid. God bless. Answered by Dominick Dunaway 2 years ago.

Your lungs are overly sensitive to natural and man-made pollutants---likely been this way your whole life, but only NOW does the condition occur more often. Doctors used to label it the "coughing crud". Your best approach is to keep a very tidy clean house and buy a couple of inexpensive, but effective air cleaning machines along your home; there's even a few small model air cleaners for cars as well. If you smoke, you're not helping yourself and it's best you quit. Typically, climatic changes during the early Spring and Fall months are difficulut and you are pressed hard to avoid industrial pollutants. Do keep yourself well hydrated and ask your doctor for breathing treatment meds FREE of steroids. Answered by Paul Coonfield 2 years ago.

no, the smoke would react very badly with your lungs. It might do damage even in food. Answered by Santiago Aroca 2 years ago.

I am 24 years old and went to the doctor today for breathing problems and high heart rate. The doctor is pretty sure I have asthma and has scheduled additional tests to be sure that is the correct diagnosis. In the meantime, she proscribed me proventil (ambuterol) and i'm supposed to take 2 puffs every 4 hours. I took the first 2 puffs this afternoon and was fine, breathing improved a little but I just took my 2 puffs for this evening and within minutes my hands are shaking uncontrollably. My whole body feels a little shaky. Is this normal? Should I just lay down and try to relax until the trembling goes away or should I go to the e.r.? Answered by Leonard Schwieterman 2 years ago.

proventil is a broncho-dialator(a mild stimulant)and as such will cause tremmor in sensitive people ,if this becomes bothersome or does not go away with continued use ,consult your health care provider .I have used it for years and ,yes it will make you a bit shakey from time to time ,but you will get used to it after a while ,it 's no big deal unless you are shaking so violently that you can not hold a half glass of water at arms length without spilling it all over the place ,if it hits you that bad call the e.r. first to see if they wish to see you ,but generally ,in time the shakes will subside ,and you will be fine ,ti takes time to get used to a new drug and proventil is no different( you might wish to expand the time between puffs ,to 5 minutes between the first and second puffs,this will get the requsite amount of drug into the system and will not cause the overload that results in the shakes ) Answered by Lael Ruden 2 years ago.

I'll explain what is happening. All CFC inhalers are being phased out by the end of 2008. You will need an HFA inhaler. Proventil is Albuterol, a generic drug. You can get a new prescription for Proventil HFA. Now, HFA inhalers are different. They use a fine mist instead of the harsh spray. They might taste different because the propellant is different.

I suffer from COPD or reactive airway disease and my doctor has prescribed flovent and proventil even?
though I never have breathing problems. I have bronchitis(?) with phlegm buildup that causes me to cough and almost vomit. I have never really understood what is wrong with me. Asked by Eusebia Asay 2 years ago.

One of the reasons you have COPD is that your airways overreact to virtually everything. They get swollen and the goblet cells produce too much mucous usually out of proportion to the stimulus.They also constrict making air movement more difficult and uneven. Normally ventilation is evenly distributed throughout the lungs. With COPD The air flow is uneven according to how much mucous is where and how much bronchoconstriction is taking place and where. This sets up underventilation of the areas that are essentially blocked. This allows bacteria to grow if there are any there and the airways and alveoli lose there function and can shut down. That's why your doctor has you on Proventil and Flovent. Trying to keep your airways open and not inflamed.And also to keep your mucous thin so it's easier to cough up. The problem being that you can't get enough air behind the mucous to push from the back and expel it. The mucous that you don't cough up simply gets thicker and thicker and just becomes more difficult. You must keep yourself well hydrated. Lots of water. to help with this problem. So you can see why they get frustrated with patients who continue to smoke which just causes the very thing your trying to avoid. God bless. Answered by Lucas Boseman 2 years ago.

Your lungs are overly sensitive to natural and man-made pollutants---likely been this way your whole life, but only NOW does the condition occur more often. Doctors used to label it the "coughing crud". Your best approach is to keep a very tidy clean house and buy a couple of inexpensive, but effective air cleaning machines along your home; there's even a few small model air cleaners for cars as well. If you smoke, you're not helping yourself and it's best you quit. Typically, climatic changes during the early Spring and Fall months are difficulut and you are pressed hard to avoid industrial pollutants.

I am 24 years old and went to the doctor today for breathing problems and high heart rate. The doctor is pretty sure I have asthma and has scheduled additional tests to be sure that is the correct diagnosis. In the meantime, she proscribed me proventil (ambuterol) and i'm supposed to take 2 puffs every 4 hours. I took the first 2 puffs this afternoon and was fine, breathing improved a little but I just took my 2 puffs for this evening and within minutes my hands are shaking uncontrollably. My whole body feels a little shaky. Is this normal? Should I just lay down and try to relax until the trembling goes away or should I go to the e.r.? Answered by Chante Willinsky 2 years ago.

proventil is a broncho-dialator(a mild stimulant)and as such will cause tremmor in sensitive people ,if this becomes bothersome or does not go away with continued use ,consult your health care provider .I have used it for years and ,yes it will make you a bit shakey from time to time ,but you will get used to it after a while ,it 's no big deal unless you are shaking so violently that you can not hold a half glass of water at arms length without spilling it all over the place ,if it hits you that bad call the e.r. first to see if they wish to see you ,but generally ,in time the shakes will subside ,and you will be fine ,ti takes time to get used to a new drug and proventil is no different( you might wish to expand the time between puffs ,to 5 minutes between the first and second puffs,this will get the requsite amount of drug into the system and will not cause the overload that results in the shakes ) Answered by Paula Galeas 2 years ago.

Proventil has a molecular weight of 239.311 g/mol number of moles for the desired solution = 2.3x10-2 * 50 / 1000 =4.6 * 10 ^ -7 weight of Proventil to gives these number of moles = 4.6 * 10 ^ -7 * 239.311 = 11.00 * 10 ^ -5 g = .11 mg so the solution is prepared by dissolving .11 mg of Proventin in 50 ml solution In a 3% w/v solution there are 3 gm / 100 ml of solution this = 3000 mg in 100 ml of solution or 3000 / 50 mg in 2 ml or cc = 60 mg Answered by Allena Benzing 2 years ago.

Yesterday my doc told me they're the same and I have used both. I have the exact same side effects with both Proventil and ProAir. I don't have COPD but that's not the only thing these inhalers are prescribed for. They open up the passageways in your lungs and help decrease inflammation every time you take a puff.

I have a five years boy, that the doctor told me he is not asthmatic but he give me the prescription for respiratory therapist. Why? I don't like to give him to many Proventil Asked by Ronald Aiton 2 years ago.

Proventil (albuterol sulfate) relaxes muscles in the airways to increase airflow to your lungs (helps make it easier to breathe). Is he having a hard time breathing or has a bad cough? Or maybe from excercise (sport maybe)? If so, these would be the leading cause for the perscription, which doesn't necessarily mean he has to have asthma. Shortness of breath could very well be temperary. But if he doesn't have these problems, I would ask your son's doctor for reasoning. Answered by Leora Desnoyers 2 years ago.

maybe he has an UPPER RESPIRATORY INFECTION OR CYSTIC FIBROSIS YOU NEED TO ASK THE MEDICAL DOCTOR WHO PRESCRIBED THIS MEDICINE WHY IT WAS PRESCRIBED OBVIOUSLY YOUR CHILD HAD WHEEZING IN LUNGS TO GET THIS MEDICINE PRESCRIBED TO HIM ASK THE DOCTOR WHO PRESCRIBED IT Answered by Caridad Zea 2 years ago.


What's better an albuterol inhaler or a proventil inhaler?

They are the same. Proventil is also albuterol. Albuterol is the drug name. The only difference is that the traditional albuterol inhalers use chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) as the propellant to deliver the medicine into lungs. Proventil inhalers contain the same medicine (albuterol) and provide the same relief as the traditional CFC inhalers you are used to. Answered by Elliott Holford 2 years ago.

albuterol is the generic name for proventil. Same stuff. It also goes by the name Ventolin. One is as good as the other.

I have the same problem. I've been toughing it out for years now, but finally went to a doctor today. They gave me Proventil but as soon as I took a puff I threw up all over my kitchen! Really gross, and I don't think I'll be using the Proventil again. I'll keep taking the Claritin and hope for the best. But my tip from years of living with wheezing and trouble breating is to sleep sitting as upright as possible. When my wheezing is bad I put about 3 pillows under my torso so that I'm propped semi-upright. If that doesn't work I sleep in a recliner chair that doesn't recline very far so that I'm sitting up. It does help me breath, maybe it'll help you. Good luck- having this problem sucks. Answered by Frederic Mccutcheon 2 years ago.
