Epinephrine for bronchospasm

Common Questions and Answers about Epinephrine for bronchospasm


Avatar n tn I am thinking that maybe the VCD is triggered by my allergies or the stress I feel having to make a hospital visit. Treatment for the allergy always works . . . Through consultation, it has been decided to treat the allergy and be aware of the VCD. Is it possible to have both issues? Treatment for each is completely opposite one another . . .
Avatar f tn A couple years later, I reacted in the dentist's chair, during an attempted root canal, after administration of lidocaine (no epinephrine in it). Needless to say, no more for me. I had previous probs during a spinal injection and more minor issues with topical anesthetic preparations that we can see in hind sight now, too. I have also had CNS reactions to quinolone antibiotics, reglan, benzodiazapines, narcotic pain meds, etc.....
Avatar f tn Hello my name is Liz , I first off would like to say thank you for reading my crazy ride in the medical realm. Second I am a medical professional and have been so since 1982. I am a nurse and I still love my work. My journey started about 15 years ago with a foot drop that I did not receive treatment for it only lasted about 3 days and then disappeared.
Avatar n tn demanded PROOF that they were working SCIENTIFICALLY for me, since I sure didn't feel any improvement. Well the albuterol failed miserably in the test. Only showed 3% improvement. The same can be said regarding singular & the others. Though I've been given the diagnosis since early childhood as having Asthma, I don't wheeze. I simply go unconscience due to my throat closing up on me when I'm exposed to perfume, cigarette smoke, and especially pollens that I'm allergic to.
634733 tn?1316629592 Question - does laughter or exercise stimulate the cough? If so, it might be bronchospasm and you could ask for an inhaler or nebulizer to try. Two Months!!! That's a pretty lacadaisical (sp?) approach for a cough this severe. Are you a smoker? That would also bring up the possibility of COPD - Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and chronic bronchitis. You need a TB skin test if you haven't had BCG. Quix You hit my doc switch.
Avatar n tn If it's an allergy (for me) I think it might be to MSG, if it's an intolerance (again for me) at the moment I'm thinking it's to very fatty foods. It's always worse when I'm stressing about something. Does any of that apply to you? You can get IBS tabs over the counter (we can here in UK anyway). Or you might want to try testing out foods to see if you are allergic/intolerant. It's a pain to do this (I keep meaning to, but haven't yet).
