Asked by Vernia Spinetti 3 months ago.
Asthma is a problem of inflammation. It is not a lung problem, it is an immune system problem that affects the lungs. In asthma, your immune system attacks your own airways. You know how when you get a cut and it gets all itchy and red? That's inflammation. In asthma, your airways get itchy and red. When your airways get inflamed, the smooth muscles of the airway get irritable and they constrict. It also causes more mucus production. All of that together narrows the airways. It takes a lot more effort to move air through a narrow airway. The treatment of asthma has to address that inflammation. There are drugs that relax the smooth muscles (bronchodilators; e.g. albuterol) but they don't treat inflammation. Treating the muscle constriction without treating the inflammation is like fighting a fire by trying to get rid of all of the smoke -- the smoke isn't the problem, it's the fire. Put out the fire and the smoke will take care of itself. So the first step is take care of the inflammation. Both QVar and Flovent are steroids. They both work to decrease inflammation -- they help put out the fire. Unlike the short-acting bronchodilators, you can't feel the steroids working. They take some time to work too; about three weeks of using them every day. If you don't take them every day (ideally at the same time every day) then they don't do anything. You have to take them consistently for several weeks for them to work. 80% is still well within the normal range. At worst, you are at the low end of normal. Most docs won't even read that as abnormal. For docs that use percentages and not the LLN, the cutoff is 75%. Anything above 75% they'll read as normal, not asthma. Asthma comes in four categories: mild-intermittent, mild-persistent, moderate-persistent, and severe. If that 80% refers to your FEV1 (and that's the main measurement used to talk about asthma) then you are in the mild category (and again, almost all docs wouldn't even call it that; they would call it a normal spirometry). Without other measurements and knowing your history I can't say whether that's mild-intermittent or mild-persistent but I would expect that to be mild-intermittent with an FEV1 of 80%. For reference, I did a test just today on a guy whose FEV1 was 32%. You have a LONG way to go before you're in severe territory. There is a test that can measure how much inflammation is in your airways. The cells that cause the inflammation in asthma release nitric oxide gas. We can measure how much of that there is. It's called a FeNO test (fraction of exhaled nitric oxide). It is a very quick and easy test and it is very sensitive and specific for asthma. All you do is exhale gently for ten seconds into a machine. That's it. That can tell you whether the steroids are doing their job, whether you may need another medication, or whether your doc can decrease the dose of your inhaled steroid. Not every pulmonary lab has it available so your regular doc may have to do some looking around to find a lab that does it. Again, it's a VERY easy test that provides good information about your asthma. Best wishes. . . Answered by Donnetta Cerverizzo 3 months ago.

I have had asthma for 20 years. I am 21.. I have ALWAYS been on albuterol for my fast acting inhaler. For the past 8 years I have been on Qvar as my preventive medicine. My mom says its a steroid and I should not take it every day of the entire year... She says I should stop taking it for a while and only take it when I need it... But its PREVENTIVE medication... I take it and my asthma symptoms go away and I feel great.. I stop taking it and can't breathe ever, and cough all the time... So I take qvar again (this would be 2 week periods of taking it) and after two weeks of taking it I feel better... THen I stop taking it... I get worse... So My doctor does not speak english... And I can't change doctors for the time being. I can only refill my Rx at the pharmacy when I need. SO my question is: Am I suppose to take Qvar every day for the entire year to prevent asthma symptoms... (which is what i thought I was suppose to do) Or do what my mom says and stop taking it when I feel better? (Which means I stop feeling better a week later, and just have to start taking it again). From all this information one would infer that I should always take it as it makes me feel better. Also its the 80 one. not the 40. So i do take the higher dose. and when my asthma gets really bad 2 puffs twice a day. and when asthma is better 1 puff twice a day. thats what my old doctor said (when i was in peds. aka pediatrics. I was in peds till i was 18) Lol. Help? Answered by Ida Mattier 3 months ago.
Hey, I too am a victim to asthma and have been for 21 years as well. Unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to find any preventive that works (recently tried Advair and had to quit because it seemed to make it worse). My answer to you is to take the medicine as the prescription is wrote out and says on the box. I have been on proventil hfa inhaler for a year or so now, and was told that I take it too much when the box actually says take 2 puffs every 4-6 hours. I was told by my doc that I shouldn't be taking it everyday -- but why would it say to on the box?? Anyways, I hope this helps. Asthma sucks... I'm just getting over bronchitis and over the course of 1-2 months I thought I was gonna kill myself cause I was so miserable. Hope you feel better!

You need to see an allergist right away to discuss this. You should avoid all allergens that cause this reaction. If you do not know for sure what is triggering this you may need to be retested. You may be a good candidate for allergy shots to lessen the risk of a reaction. You may also need to get and learn to use an Epipen. These symptoms are consistent with anaphylactic reactions and can be life threatening. So - you will call the doctor tomorrow for an appointment OK???? Please???

Asthma inhaler question?
the strange thing is, on its own, the inhaler works well, but at random times my chest will feel tight! So i dont know if the inhaler really is to blame for being too light or what
Asked by Edelmira Shelor 3 months ago.
Not in the way people usually think of that--if your inhaler isn't working the same, several possibilities: For example, the inhaler is expired or actually empty, you have a new problem, your original problem has worsened, or maybe you don't need it any more. The only way to be sure is to see your doctor. I'm a little curious, though, as to why they've kept you on Qvar for bronchospasm for 4 months but without any fast acting med for acute episodes. It might be wise to ask your doctor that, too. Answered by Vivian Proffer 3 months ago.

The Qvar should not have caused you to have a stomach ache, although if you took it right before supper and tasted it (which means that most hit your tongue, and didn't get into your lungs), that could have made your food taste funny. Make sure that you rinse your mouth out or brush your teeth after taking the Qvar, as it can cause a thrush infection in your mouth if you don't. Also, get a spacer/aerochamber if you don't have one already. It will increase drug deposition in your lungs (from about 15% to 80%) and get rid of most of the bad taste associated with inhalors. Your local pharmacy should have them in stock. That said, generally exercise induced asthma is treated with Ventolin (blue inhalor) just prior to exercising, not with Qvar (which is a corticosteroid). This is meant for asthma that has chronic inflammation, usually caused by allergies. Check the link below, and learn about it. This is for the Lung Association of Canada. Answered by Wava Wren 3 months ago.
If using an inhaler when you do not have asthma or breathing problems is not good for your lungs, your heart, and your neurological system. If you are short of breath when you run, and you are young, and do not smoke, chances are you do have asthma or allergies. Just because your parents think that you had asthma as a child, but not now, doesn't make it true. If the inhaler is giving you relief when you are short of breath, then clearly you have a breathing problem. Go and see your doctor to ask about this. You could be a smoker and your smoking is hurting your lung capacity. You could have allergies, asthma, bronchitis or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, (COPD). I have COPD due to emphysema. If you are needing the inhaler to handle your shortness of breath, you must go and see a doctor to find out why. The sooner you go, the better. Good Luck.

I've never used Qvar personally. I've used a lot of different inhalers, preventive and rescue ones, I've also been on a nebulizer for awhile as well. When I take my inhaler the wrong way I get shaky, or sometimes it's just too strong of a dosage for me, and I get sick to the stomach, and a little dizzy. If it goes away when I have to keep taking it then I know I just took it wrong. If it doesn't go away while I keep taking it, the dosage is too high for me. If it's messing up your sense of taste you might have taken it improperly and got some of the medicine on your tongue instead of in your airways. Some inhalers require you to rinse your mouth out immediately after taking it, like the powder ones that you just click and breathe in. Answered by Alex Musetti 3 months ago.

I was just diagnosed with asthma last year, and am now 23. I rarely feel fine anymore, I took an allergy test which proved I wasn't allergic to anything. I have had several trips to the hospital, urgent care, doctors, and allergy specialist. I have been given prednisone, "z-packs", bactrim, and amoxicillin. The prednisone helps when I am on it. However when I get back off of it I feel horrible again. For a brief period last month I felt great, I take advair 250/50 on a regular basis, and I felt as though I didn't need to completely depend on it (even though I still took it). I usually feel great when I'm on my advair, but it seems like everytime I get a cold everything gets bad again. The month I felt completely normal (like before I had asthma) my symptoms were cured with bactrim and prednisone. However I asked my doctor for another dose of both because I started feeling bad again it didn't help. I can't keep going to the hospital and missing work because I can barely walk or move around. I just feel helpless. Has anyone had similar experiences? Or have any advice on any medicines they recommend. My doctors don't want to give me any more prednisone, but the advair just isn't doing it right now. HELPPP!??!??! Answered by Breanne Scro 3 months ago.
I used to be on Advair 500/50 for asthma and I got sick all the time, too. I got pneumonia, my lungs felt itchy (the pulmonologist never believed me), and I would stop taking it when I got sick because it seemed to make everything many times worse. Of course, the docs thought this was crazy, but it worked (I'm not suggesting you drop something the doc prescribed for you--just giving some background), and then one day, I actually read the whole insert you get in the box with the inhaler disk. Unlike you, I am very allergic to many things. It has been on my charts for a long time that I am allergic to milk. Apparently nobody cared to mention that Advair contains lactose (and aside from the fact that sugar has no business in the lungs), and seeing as it was probably taken from a milk source, there was the possibility for contamination with the proteins I dare not eat. So why would I risk INHALING THEM? I basically screamed out the doctors, called them all morons, and demanded a change. I was vicious about it. But seeing as I had to take midterm exams with a temp of 105.4, hopped up on nine prescriptions so I could breathe and stay awake, and my immune system got messed up so I had other infections as well, I was in no mood to deal with any of what they had to say. None of them knew about the lactose. They should have. [Side note: a lot of people with nut allergies are also asthmatic, and for some reason, peanut derivatives are in nebulizer drugs. What? WHY? It's just stupidity to put common allergens in drugs.) Now to the part you might actually care about... I got switched to Symbicort 160/4.5 as well as Qvar 80. Most people with asthma wouldn't take two, but I was already unfortunate enough to be a teenager on Advair 500/50. Symbicort is basically the same thing as Advair--it's a long acting bronchodilator as well as a steroid. Qvar is just a steroid. Seeing as the bronchodilators are the more dangerous parts of these combined drugs (more sudden asthma related deaths), I kind of hate them. Steroids can mess you up long term (osteoporosis, cataracts, etc), but so can not breathing. After basically getting yelled at for lung function I obviously have no control over that requires such high dose steroids, I am generally upset that medical science is failing so many people and that it's somehow our faults. SO. The way I see it, you have a few options. There is the higher dose of Advair available, if you want to stick to that. Just know that, in my experience, it seems that a lot of doctors are ready to push Advair and not the other duel-action asthma medications. I think the drug companies are definitely riding them. Aerosol inhalers also work better for me than things like that stupid diskus. Symbicort and Qvar are aerosols. I've also taken Pulmicort, but got taken off of it for Advair because my lungs suck, but at least the Pulmicort (just a steroid) wasn't slowly killing me. So, obviously, there are a LOT of drug options when you're an asthmatic. I haven't taken Dulera myself, but that's another bronchodilator/steroid combo drug. Definitely ask to try other things. I really hate Advair, and it made me gross and phlegmy sick like you seem to be, so there's always a chance it's doing the same sort of thing to you too. I assume, since you're 23, you got tested for genetic diseases when you were a baby. Sometimes cystic fibrosis shows up in adulthood, and people would likely be misdiagnosed and on a lot of antibiotics and breathing drugs before anybody realized. This is a fairly rare occurrence, and you probably shouldn't worry, but I'm just throwing it out there for an idea. Just so you know, one reason why your symptoms are fluctuating might just be because you're female. Asthma gets worse with the influx of hormones around your period. This is why women with asthma generally have more problems than men. Some docs will suggest adding more medication for the worst week, and for some women, controlling hormones helps alleviate symptoms. Usually, birth control pills are given for that. Those are also not something to take lightly with their side effects, but they are an option. I hope this helps you figure something out that works. Until then, have your Albuterol handy at all times. Good luck! Answered by Francine Emmert 3 months ago.
Would you mind telling me what is the best medicine to use when i get sharp asthma?
i use aminophyline dexamethazone and ventoline spray >
Asked by Cortney Barfield 3 months ago.
The ventolin/albuterol inhaler is best for sudden attacks, it will open the passageways right away. But what you really need to do is get control of your asthma everyday, then the sudden attacks will lessen. I have had asthma since I was 16, and I thought I was doing OK, using albuterol a couple times a day and Serevent every night. But when I switched HMOs and went to Kaiser, they sent me to their allergy clinic and I found out that I wasn't doing as well as I thought I was. First off, I got a spacer, a plastic tube thing that the inhaler goes in one end and you breath in the other. When you use an inhaler, too much of the meds end up just in your mouth and not in the lungs like it should. So the spacer gets more into your lungs. Then I had to use my meds correctly, Serevent in the morning and evening and a corticol steriod inhaler (I was given Qvar 80) Using the ventolin/albuterol all the time forces the airways open but doesn't do much for the underlaying condition, the inflammation that is causing the swelling. So even tho I don't like steroids (one doctor put me on prednisone tablets for about 9 months for sever lung infections and the side effects were horrible and I never wanted to take any steroid again. But the Qvar just goes into the lungs not the rest of your system like the pills do and I haven't had any bad side effects from using it. It works on the inflammation and with the Serevent (which now has been switched to Singulair) I have gone from using the rescue inhaler (ventolin/albuterol) 3 or 4 times a day to maybe once or twice a week. So talk to your doctor about managing your condition so that you don't have such bad attacks.. At least get a prescription for a long-lasting med like Serevent or Singulair, they take an hour or so to start working but last for about 8-10 hours, even tho they are a little costly, its worth it not to feel like maybe your aren't going to breathe again.

Asked by Celesta Pollet 3 months ago.
Hi, I want to give you hope, information and from you I need some questions answered. Bronchiectasis is a permanent widening and rendering the bronchial tubes ineffective. This can be hereditary, caused by disease such as cystic fibrosis, mold (aspergillous) or by frequent bouts of infections resulting in bronchitis or pneumonia. The disease may be localized in a small area of one or both lungs and that is it, or through time, more and more of both lungs may progressively be affected. It is diagnosed via breathing studies and CAT scans of the lungs. Pulmonologists in large medical centers or teaching hospitals with large Pulmonary Divisions offer the best prognosis. Once the tubes are dilated and ineffective, they no longer function for aeration of blood and become prone to infections since the muscles are gone and they no longer are capable of clearing (moving) mucous and this results in frequent infections and the vicious cycle continues. Also there can be small or large amounts of blood coughed up during infections as the arteries bleed. So what is your status? One lung or both? Severe in both lungs or one? What is the cause in your case? How long have you had this? Have you had lung studies, CAT scans and are you seen by pulmonolgists? I need to know this. Also is there any asthma? In my experience, antiobiotics are essential; zithromax also helps to stop any mild/moderate bleeding. As soon as infection occurs antibiotics are needed, even in between, sometimes on a rotating basis. Antibiotics need to be used for far longer time periods than for the average individual. Also, do you have reflux? Prevacid or Nexium twice a day and an elevated bed at the head (at least 6 inches) helps and is essential. Reflux will aggrevate this condition. Bronchial dilators, (short acting) I like Maxiar Autohaler(2 puffs 3x daily) and Serevent Discus 2x daily (long acting); both would be used continually. Spiriva once a day is usually more effective than Atrovent. Then the steroid inhalers, such a Flovent or Qvar (2 puffs 4x daily of Qvar 80 mcg.). Flovent is more potent but causes too much adrenal suppresion too often. Then guifenisen to facilitate mucous loosening. Lots of liquids to drink always. Annual flu shots and pnemonia shot every 6 or 7 years as new strains of virus are added. If there is aspergillous mold that is causing the problem, a fungus drug regimine helps to control it as do prednisone bursts. But more details from you are needed. Also which state and near which large city do you live? You need the best medical center. There once was a boy who had asthma and could not attend the first 3 years of elementary school because of it. Later he went to medical school and then developed TB, which was cured. He battled the asthma and lung problems his entire life but became the chief pulmonologist and taught more pulmonologists then anyone before him. Most of his students became chiefs of pulmonology in hospitals across America. He created breathing studies, respiratory therapy, published many research articles, etc. that are still referenced. He lived for 89 years and died of none lung disease. So do not give up hope. If all else fails, they do lungs transplants well at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Tell me more details bout your condition. Answered by Yon Madler 3 months ago.
Bronchiectasis is less a disease than a component of several diseases. It just means dilated large airways (Ectatic Bronchi). I see cases of bronchiectasis in patients with various problems: 1) Cystic fibrosis - Can be diagnosed by sweat test. 2) Ciliary abnormalities - Can be diagnosed by electron microscopy of respiratory cells - or direct visualization of respiratory cells. 3) Upstream changes in small airway scarring (constrictive bronchiolitis) - Diagnosed by pulmonary function tests and lung biopsy. We have transplanted several people with these diseases. Lung transplant is not easy, but it would allow you to see 40 in most cases. I would start by finding out why you have bronchiectasis. Find a good pulmonologist at a large medical center that does evaluations for transplant if you think that may be required down the line. There are various therapies you can do to keep the lungs as healthy as possible (read "The Bell Curve" by Atul Gawande online at the New Yorker's website for some info).

You should only use it when you need it. A good idea is to have it on you at all times. Answered by Jadwiga Spunt 3 months ago.
My brother is an asthmatic and after ten years his bronchial asthma has shown no sign of recuperating. He has been to a number of medical doctors yet they did no longer help lots. in case you prefer a shown, all-organic thank you to therapy your bronchial asthma, while not having to pay for ineffective drugs with risky component-consequences, then that's the main extreme internet site you will ever examine.

The treatment of asthma has to be individualized. There is no way of saying whether you will start getting attacks as soon as you stop using the inhaler. It has to be reduced gradually. Answered by Martha Naro 3 months ago.
