Avatar f tn I have had seasonal allergies along with dust, cat and dog allergies too since 30 years ago. I finally had 5 years of allegy shot ending aroung 2005, This year has been so bad with all the pollen I feel like I'm right back to day one. My eyes are itchy, my nose runs and my palate is so itchy. I take Atrovent for post nasal drip, aerius for the allergies and I'm also on Advair 250 discuss. Why is this happening after all these years? Will it go away or am I supposed to get shots again.
Avatar f tn He prescribed me atrovent but from what I understand it is usually a substitute for ventolin not steroids. He directed me to take both atrovent and ventolin 2 times a day for a month but I don't really have a long term treatment plan. The doctor seemed a bit stumped as to what else to do. I am suffering from some symptoms almost all the time and regularly have fairly bad attacts. I am very glad to have the ventolin but I'm hoping to find long term treatment for the underlying problem.
Avatar n tn I decided it was my atrovent neb (an anticholinergic like Spiriva). My allergist thought it was my Dulera (inhaled combination med like Advair). I eliminated the atrovent and reduced my Dulera and the laryngitis healed. She needs to discus any changes in dosage with her doctor before making changes. I had already been discussing the changes with my doctor as my asthma had become much better controlled. I just pushed up the timeline on one and she made the other. God bless.
Avatar f tn My son has suffered that for years. We finally went to a university hospital where they did all the typical GERD related test and as soon as they discovered he actually had GERD, it seemed like they concentrated on that as being the source of his cough, and stopped listening to what he was telling them, that the cough would start as soon as he ate food. It didn't have enough time to get to his stomach and then start to regurge.
Avatar n tn According to Laboratory and Diagnostic Tests with Nursing Implications by Joyce Lefever Kee excess adrenocortical hormone secretion can decrease the number of lymphocytes. Cortisol is an example of such a hormone. It is released under times of stress. There are blood tests available to determine if you have excess cortisol in your blood. However, there are many disease processes which can lower the lymphocyte count as well. Have you had a thorough exam?
212161 tn?1599427282 Hello... I have asthma and take Flovent 2xday and used to take Combivent as needed. My Dr switched me from Combivent to Atrovent. With Atrovent, I find that it doesn't cause my heart to race as much as it did when using the Combivent.
Avatar f tn A 68 year-old white male presenting with pectus excavatum and blood pressure that averages 155/85 . What implications may be encountered regarding dysfunctional heart functions ?
Avatar f tn This is similar to what happened with my "Asthma". Started bad and was diagnosed and given advair - worked like a charm and was awesome. Then had a bad asthma spell because of my work (a pet store) moving and we had 25 years of dirt, fur and dust moving around the store as the shelvings were been moved plus a lot of cleaner fumes.
Avatar f tn The best and most affective inhalers are stimulants and will cause your heart to race. Anticholenergics like atrovent and Spireva have mild broncho dilating affects, but they are not nearly as good as albuterol or the long-acting beta2 agonists (long acting broncho dilaters). The best thing for you to do is to take controller meds on schedule as directed by your doctor limiting your need for the rescue inhaler. Feel better.

Avatar n tn Tremors are a result of imbalance dopamine in the body and usually medications such as levodopa or Anticholinergic drugs-such as Atropine, Atrovent, Oxivent, Spiriva, and Rubinol are used to treat them. Nicotine counteracts anticholinergic medications. If the tremors are alcohol related then detox is necessary to decrease them. I Hope This Helps. Good Luck and God Bless!

Avatar n tn I have no side effects from the Asmanex. It's supposed to relax the lungs and I find it helpful. Also, I've started on Atrovent alone and that's solved the coughing problem I had with the Combivent. Good luck.
