Go to www.gsk.com That is the drug manufacturers web site. They do have programs in over 100 countries that supply low or no cost drugs to people who need them. You can probably contact them directly to see if you qualify. Good luck. Answered by Nicolette Fatheree 2 years ago.

Being a paramedic and an asthmatic I can help here. With my asthma, If i feel i'm short of breath and tight in the chest i take a few puff off my ventolin and then put my hands on my head, try to stay calm and relax and control my breathing. If that doen't work its more ventolin and hands back on the head. If that doesn't work then its on the phone to the ambulance before its too late. Now the reason for the hands on the head is that it helps expand your lungs. So next time try it and let me know how it goes. Now being a paramedic I would say at any [point that you med dont work you need to call us as it could become life threatening especially if you've been In ICU before with asthma.

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.

A prolonged lung disease that causes inflammation and narrowing to the airways is known as Asthma. This disease is characterized with whistling sound that occurs at recurring intervals, shortness of breath, chest tightness and coughing at intervals. The coughing symptom that occurs would be exhibited only at early morning or at night. This condition prevails among people of all age groups but often children are prone to this condition. Among the millions of people who are affected by this disease, at least a third of them would be children. There can be genetic as well as environmental factors that can be thought of as the causing agents. There are so many patterns and symptoms exhibited which can lead to their classification and the suggestions for cure. Asthma Treatment Strategies There are so many methods being employed in treatment of this disorder. This depends upon the individual who is affected with this condition. The main method of treatment would be to avoid the various things that trigger such an attack. Other than the use of an inhaler, people can use a combination of medications for the better treatment of this disorder or disease condition. There are so many treatment strategies that could be selected after going through various available treatment options. It is also important to undergo continuous monitoring by a doctor before choosing them.

Asthma is caused by chronic dehydration. Dehydration is more than just a water deficit. It's also a salt and other minerals deficit. When you drink water, it goes into the cells. Other minerals inside the cells help to hold the water in and they regulate how much water is shared with the rest of the body. Outside the cells is a sort of "ocean" containing water and salt. The salt in this "ocean" regulates the amount of water inside the cells. These areas inside and outside the cells must remain in a critical balance. But salt has many other functions besides holding water in the cells. It also breaks up mucus and congestion to keep the airways open. It's the lack of sufficient water and salt that causes asthma. When you become dehydrated, a water management program kicks in to conserve water. To do this, it needs to look for and try and stop anywhere where water is "leaking" (leaving the body). Because you lose around 1 qt of water per day through respiration (breathe on a mirror to see this water vapor loss), the body thinks this is a considerable loss, and so it reduces the amount of water (and salt - salt is carried by the water) going to the lungs, making it more difficult to breathe. By avoiding soft drinks and other beverages that dehydrate the body and drinking plain water only (no flavoring or other additives), and by increasing the salt intake, asthma will go away permanently. The link below has a guide to show exactly how much water and how much salt to use and when to use them. htp://www.watercure2.org/mankind.htm Answered by Deneen Lukacs 2 years ago.
