Advair diskus instructions use

Common Questions and Answers about Advair diskus instructions use


Avatar f tn I usually use advair diskus for my asthma but I no longer have insurance and I can't affor to pay for it? Is there another medication I can use that is not so expensive?
1425157 tn?1311651679 I have asthma and when I use the albuterol, it will jazz up my heart for about 10 minutes. It has an adrenergic effect (like adrenalin). When my asthma goes out of control and I have to use the steroid, beclomethasone, it doesn't affect my heart at all. But Advair has both a steroid and a bronchodilator. Perhaps it's the salmeterol that's bothering you. I agree with Cindy - see if you can get a different med to treat the lung inflammation without the jazzy side effect.
Avatar f tn While it is known that high doses, much higher than AdvairDiskus® (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Powder 500/50, of long-acting bronchodilator medicines, such as the Serevent® (salmeterol) in Advair™ Diskus® (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Powder, can cause abnormal heart rhythms, this is rare.
Avatar f tn I have been cautious about creating any sort of quick, drastic, pressure change in my mouth but now, I wonder about the use of my Advair diskus. I take Advair on a regular basis for asthma and have refrained from using it in the 24 hours post-extraction because I figured the quick inhalation may dislodge the clots. Now, however, it has been two days post-extraction, and I wonder whether it is safe to use Advair without risk of dislodging the clots.
Avatar f tn I use the Advair Diskus 250/50 every 12 hours. My job requires that I talk. It has become difficult to talk with the use of the Diskus. If I stop using it a few days my voice comes back. My Doctor told me to gargle, which I do when I rinse my mouth. I have also tried using biotene moisturizing mouth spray as well as the cream. Nothing seems to help. My employer is always asking when this is going to change. I want my voice back. Do you have any suggestions.
Avatar n tn I have an expired Advair Diskus. Has anyone used theirs past the expiration date? If so, how far past the date, and what was the result?
Avatar f tn It did not work even after trying it a year. I was then given Advair Diskus 250/50, after 2 1/2 months called the doctor because of using emergency inhaler Albuterol Sulfate 90mgc min 10 times a day. Albuterol created a vocal cord problem. Now been put on Flovent Diskus 100mgc and continue the Albuterol. Question, do the Flovent and Advair have the fluticasone propionate ingredient in common? Tonight will be my 1st use of the Flovent.
Avatar n tn My pulmonary specialist just gave me an Advair Diskus and increased my Albuterol breathing treatments to 4-6 daily and my Combivent Inhaler every 4 hours. I almost died from an asthma attack last weekend. I had emergency heart surgery in June and have been having arrhythmias so I'm on a heart monitor for this month. I understand that Advair causes heart palpitations. Since I'm already having trouble with my heartbeat, I'm afraid to try the Advair.
Avatar n tn AdvairDiskus® (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Powder contains 2 medicines. The inhaled steroid Flovent® (fluticasone propionate) has a half life of around 5 hours, so it would be totally out of your system in a few days. The inhaled long-acting bronchodilator Serevent® (salmeterol) has a similar half life, so it would be totally out of your system after 5 days. When steroid side effects occur, they may linger for weeks or even months after the medicine has been stopped.
Avatar m tn Manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) advises that all users of its Advair Diskus who have liver problems consult their physician before using the product. GSK has received a flurry of negative reports regarding the effects of its diabetes medication, Avandia, Significance GSK's Medication Guide advises that anyone with liver problems consult with their physician before taking Advair.
Avatar f tn As for your teeth and mouth, your doctor should have given you instructions to rinse or brush your teeth after using the Advair, otherwise it can eat through the enamel and also cause sores and sensitivity in your mouth. If you have any concerns, you should call your doctor or pharmacist. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn m experiencing multiple disturbing symptoms which I suspect are related to Advair Diskus use. For disclosure, I DID NOT follow usage instructions (due to being uninsured and broke) and stretched out use to over a month and a half, using only once a day most of the time -also partially due to the fact that it makes me puke. I used it several months ago for the 1st time and quit after it almost ran out. I quit using it this (2cnd) time about 6 days ago.
Avatar n tn However using a long-term control medicine, like Advair, Diskus (fluticasone/salmeterol), should help clear it away quicker. Sometimes this test is repeated after he has used a rescue inhaler like albuterol. When there is a 20% increase the test is positive for asthma. Advair� Diskus� (fluticasone/salmeterol) and albuterol as needed are recommended for the treatment for asthma.
Avatar f tn My husband and I were putting on one of those window kits to keep out the cold air out and I became very tired and my arms and legs felt like they were burning. I use 2 inhalers a day, Spiriva and Advair Diskus 250/50 and use Albuterol inhaler as needed. I am 70 years old. I have never been real athetlic but I find I am getting weaker all the time.
Avatar m tn Will advair diskus 500/50 cause a false negative on a methacholine challenge ive been taking it for about a week now?
Avatar m tn What will happen if I continue to take Advair Diskus after it was left in a car (about 90-95 degrees) for 2-4 hours? Is it still safe?
Avatar n tn was scripted Advair Diskus q.12h. for the SOB (shortness of breath) symptoms even though already had been taking occasional Primatene tablets and albuterol inhaler for seasonal hayfever and allergy symptoms of SOB which worked quite well). Had a nightmare the very first night - have not had nightmares in decades (with the exception of Bushbaby in the White House but that is a real life nightmare). Also became easily agitated, restless and quick to anger.
1425157 tn?1311651679 I had a horrid cold and it turned into a nasty dry hacking cough that lasted months s doc has said a reactive asthma has developed from it all--out me on the advair diskus,,however--i also get ectopic heart beats ,anxiety and episodes of heart pounding--so i have 2 questions 1--can the only symptom of asthma be this cough and tight chest 2-is it safe to take advair as right after my 4 th ever does tonight i got forceful heart thudding and anxious -so far 30 in dunno if it is the med or me
Avatar n tn I am using advair for my asthma and it seems to help with those symptoms and I also have a rescue inhaler Flovent. But i do clean my advair diskus before and after each use. I dont have any infections in my mouth or lung i just have the white mucus and it has only been happening for two months and I have been using the advair about a year now. I heard from someone that the white mucus could be from that true?
Avatar n tn I use Duoneb (similar to combivent) in a nebulizer and find it very helpful. I discontinued the use of Advair (which is basically a combination of Serevent and Flovent) because it almost killed me (choking). It also caused adrenal fatigue, was harming my eyes, and was subverting my immune system. In place of Advair I use a variety of natural anti-inflammatories and mucolytics. My health is much improved and I found that the severe bronchitis I had was in fact CAUSED by the Advair.
975514 tn?1324997938 I am curious to know if there are any long term health risks to using the Advair Diskus? I have been using it since it came out at various different dosages depending on my needs at the time. Just curious to know what others have experienced. Thanks.
1580085 tn?1400940838 I have Copd--they just gave me Advair diskus 100/50, BUT I also have PSVT this is when your heart starts beating really fast ie: 135 + beats per minute and I have to take( Metoprolo Succ ER) to keep my heart from racing....I hear everyone say that the Advair makes their heart race...and it is one of the side effects....anyone know if the heart med will keep this from happening? I have yet to try the Advair as I just got it today---and I am supposed to use it in the AM and PM one puff.....
1398693 tn?1343684738 25 MG/3ML IN NEBU 2X a day before advair, SINGULAIR 10 MG PO TABS, ADVAIR DISKUS 500-50 MCG/DOSE IN AEPB 2X a day, QVAR 80 MCG/ACT IN AERS 2 puffs 2X a day When I see me doctor primary or allergist they all ways tell me that my lungs are clear but I still can’t breathe I’m even having a problem breathing when he’s listening to my lungs. Could my lungs be chronically inflamed? I haven’t had an x-ray since February I don’t know why they won’t do an x-ray to see what’s going on?
Avatar n tn I have the same problem. My doc had me on 250/50 2 times daily. It became a problem for me becuase I am sensitive to medications. I don't like feeling jittery because it freaks me out LOL. I stopped using it and then just Sunday, had an asthma attack. Now I'm using my inhaler and will have to start back on it. THE SOLUTION: My doc understood my concern about Advair. He said to take it once in the morning or afternoon regularly.
5037123 tn?1362663006 Hello LAC936, I have asthma and I have had asthma for more than 10 years atleast. My doctor has prescribed Pulmicort which I take 2 times a day. You have to rinse your mouth after you take Pulmicort. I also take something called Bricanol which is also an inhaler which my doctor told me to use as needed. I've seen commercials for Advair. The commercials state that not everybody is a candidate for Advair. One idea is to google - possible side effects of Advair.
Avatar m tn Like the title states, i have a brief breathlessness when i use my advair, i have been using it for about 4 years now. The sensation lasts for about 2 minutes then gradually relieves my asthma on the whole. i Use a 250/50 Diskus. Also today i had a slight aspiration issue from what i believe to be GERD related but not yet diagnosed. acid keeps washing into my esophagus and twice today it got into the lungs and now i have a non stop sensation that my lungs are hot and irritated!
1398693 tn?1343684738 25 MG/3ML IN NEBU 2X a day before Advair, Singular 10 MG PO TABS, Advair Diskus 500-50 MCG/Dose in AEPB 2X a day, Qvar 80 MCG/ACT IN AERS 2 puffs 2X a day for my severe asthma and I do get relief from the Combivent only to have the chest heaviness come back hours later. So if it were from tight muscles in my chest wouldn’t the Combivent not work because is affecting the lungs and not the muscles?
