Avatar n tn after December 31, 2008, and patients should be transitioned to a hydrofluoralkane (HFA) propelled albuterol inhaler now. To date, the three HFA-propelled albuterol inhalation aerosol inhalers on the market include ProAir™ HFA, Proventil® HFA, and Ventolin® HFA. In addition, levalbuterol, the (R) enantiomer of racemic albuterol, is also available as Xopenex HFA™ inhalation aerosol.

Avatar n tn The technique for using them is different than other inhalers. If your doctor didn't train you well on how to use them, that could be part of the problem you had. Also, the fact that they are powder and the powder settles on the vocal cords and other parts of the respiratory tract causes irritation. That makes me cough constantly as well. Just a note: The HFA MDI's work much better with a spacer.

The best test to show how bad the asthma is, is a methacholine challenege test, it tests how hyper-reactive your lungs are. Keep pushing and looking and eventually you will find the right drug combination to feel great!

Avatar m tn HI there, I don't know how much help I can be to you but I just wanted to say that I know how stressful it can be to have a child that is sick. To go into great detail would take all night but very basically my oldest child had severe stomach pains for 2 years. We were told by friends that it was probably in her head or that she was stressed. The doctors told us it was abdominal migraines etc. I felt that I was beating my head against the wall.

I'm taking 1600 ug/day of pulmicort with 3 x puffs of Oxeze 12 ug/day. I feel tired a lot because of the daily coughing, chest tightness and occasional shortness of breath. My day is busy as it is and I need to be functioning a 100% at work, and these days my boss is complaining about my work as I am not as sharp as I used to be.
