serevent

212161 tn?1599427282 I have QVAR (beclomethasone) that is a steroid. The quick relief inhalers like albuterol will have an adrenergic effect and cause the heart rate to increase temporarily. My HR increase usually lasts about 15 minutes. I see that Flovent and Advair are both steroidal inhalers.
Avatar f tn It has an ihaled corticosteroird (ICS) and a long acting beta2 agonist (LABA - long acting broncho dilater). It is not recommended that you stop taking the ICS all at once. It is a steroid, although it doesn't have the same side effects of oral steroids. The ICS is really the primary treatment for asthma. After you are feeling better, you can discus trying an ICS only medication like Asmanex or Alvesco with your doctor.
Avatar f tn Albuterol (should be your rescue med) is not a steroid, neither is servent and tons of other asthma meds. You need to go see your primary doc to get your meds changed until the tumor thing is resolved.
Avatar n tn That suggests that the inflammation in your nose, called rhinitis, may have begun as non-allergic and is now both allergic and non-allergic. This is common. This is a problem that should be sorted-out by a board certified allergist. It is highly likely that it will be possible to control your problem with the administration of an inhaled nasal steroid. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Hi, I use Nasacort, which is a steroid nasal spray, but I'm not always good at using it.
Avatar m tn Based on your symptoms, you might have what is called vasomotor rhinitis which is a runny nose in response to some irritation (like eating spicy food or going outside in the cold). It is often treated with a drying nasal spray (like Atrovent).
Avatar m tn It is often treated with a drying nasal spray (like Atrovent) and antihistamines like chlorpheniramine and loratadine are effective. Nasal decongestant drops too relieve congestion. Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. Regards.
Avatar f tn I am taking atrovent for asthma and i was wondering if i should be spitting out phlem after i take a treatment or does it just break the phlem up and i spit it out whenever?
Avatar f tn I've recently been diagnosed with asthma and was prescribed ventolin and budesonide inhalers. After a few days of suffering side effects and getting much worse I went back to the doctor and he confirmed that I am allergic to budesonide, which he said is quite unusual. He prescribed me atrovent but from what I understand it is usually a substitute for ventolin not steroids.
Avatar f tn In the past few weeks I have noticed that I cough causing phlegm to rise in my chest after I have eaten. It is every mealtime and nothing specific triggers it other than food. After a couple of coughs it's all clear again until my next meal. Can you please enlighten me as to what may be happening?

Avatar f tn Since it sounds like you are sensitive to the beta agonists, it might be worth a try with Atrovent, which is a like Spiriva, but s short acting and somewhat different formula. I would speak with your physician about this medication.
1135961 tn?1279145314 I have seen two doctors and im on a combination of meds. They are, Advair500, Atrovent, Alvesco, Prednizone, Singulair, and ventolin. All these meds dont seem to work.Ive been to the e.r three times in the last two months. And during my last visit I was put on bypass. Its seems like every day my chest is tight, and I wease a little. Sure there are some good days, but overall my asthma is still out of control. I feel so frustrated , and dont want to end up in the er again. What do I do?
1232362 tn?1333135406 Prednisone should help make you stronger as it is a steroid. I dont know about avalox as I never took it. However I am on FLOVENT inhaler and Albuterol inhaler as a rescue backup, and I use the albuterol only when I feel an attack coming on. So I basically keep it in my purse for security. The FLOVENT is very effective in my case. I too have had asthma for about 30 yrs. But have it under control.

Avatar m tn Hi, in vasomotor rhinitis, the symptoms occur in response to a trigger, like eating spicy food or going outside in the cold. The primary treatment is simply avoiding the things that trigger your symptoms. Dymista (azelastine and fluticasone nasal spray) treats nasal congestion, sneezing, and runny nose caused by seasonal allergies.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with migraine headaches 17 years ago. They cam and went around my period. As I had my first child the headaches became mor frequent and at one time I had had 63 days straight with pain. I was hospitalized and diagnosed with non-aura tension type headaches. I was then put on triptan type medications and was told to never take over-the-counter pain medication again.
Avatar m tn Is there a generic for Dymista or sufficient duplicate. I an on social securty and disability check. CaNot afford Dymista.
Avatar f tn Yes, Atrovent is ipratropium bromide is used for COPD. I use Duoneb which is a combination of albuterol and ipratropium. You are making me wonder if I can manage with ipratropium alone. I have never tried it. I will ask my lung doctor. I use a portable nebulizer. With that I can take as little as I need (or as much).
