7748835 tn?1393868668 Hello. I'm 16, 5'6 and 118lbs. I've had asthma since I was little and I just got a diagnosis that it was moderate persistent asthma but has worsened since I've had that diagnosis so I'm sure it's severe now. I'm on Advair 250/20 as a preventor and I have Ventolin HFA as a rescue inhaler. I take Advair twice a day, but sometimes forget to take it. I don't believe it helps prevent any symptoms or attacks whatsoever.
Avatar m tn Under PFT test it shows FEF25-75 IS SIGNIFICANTLY DECREASED SUGGESTING INCREASED SMALLER AIRWAY AIRFLOW OBSTRUCTION, attending doctor started Ventolin HFA , please suggest what can be done? does this is serious concern in future.
Avatar m tn The only new med that I have been taking in the past 2 weeks is Ventolin HFA (Albuterol Sulfate Inhalation Aerosol) for my coughing after coming down with flue. I have also been eating lots of broccoli sprouts and home made fresh ginger tea mixed with little honey. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon! Regards, Perez.. (IBS/IBD?) L.
Avatar f tn I been smoking for 11 years now. The er at the time prescribed me ventolin hfa. I went to my regular dr a week later and they ordered me a pulmonary function test. I got the results and it says that there is nothing wrong with my lungs. But i still continue to get the cough off and on every 3-4 months. Every time i use my inhaler, my chest gets aggravated and congested and it makes me cough more...as of 2013, im 28 weeks pregnant and im still smokin cigarettes.
Avatar f tn If yes and you are using a dry powder inhaler - you may be like me and react to the lactose they use as the carrier molecule to get the medication into your lungs. Advair HFA, alvesco and any HFA inhalers are lactose free. Puli org, symbicort, any disk inhalers or rotatable ones a Have lactose in them. I did have to fight to get my doctor to believe me and switch my inhaler but proved it once I was off for a few months - improved and then did spirometry before and after taking symbicort ...
Avatar m tn Santos, You can please name those tests which can be asked to attending doctor to order, in PFT test it shows- FEF25-75 NOW IS SIGNIFICANTLY DECREASED SUGGESTING INCREASED SMALLER -AIRWAY AIRFLOW OBSTRUCTION, Attending doctor started VENTOLIN HFA , getting weakness,trembling with this only usage of three times, please guide-
Avatar f tn Watch inactive ingredients present - all of the dickus medications (advair, ventolin etc) have lactose as a carrier for the medication. You might be reacting to that and not the medication, switching to the HFA inhaler version would help that (or vice versa). If is VERY unlikely you are allergic to every single medication for asthma because there is a lot of differing types and specific meds.
Avatar f tn I did that and the results came back fine, and there was nothing wrong with my lungs. The er gave me albuterol ventolin hfa. Whenever i use it, the medicine makes my chest more worse. I dnt know why, but as of now im 28 weeks pregnant, and as of right now since mothers day, i been having this whistling in my chest and i have been coughing since last week sunday, with a rumbling sound in my chest wen i inhale and exhale. I havent used my inhaler or nothing else.
Avatar f tn I did have a chest x-ray which was clear except my doctor said that my small airways looked pronounced which could indicate airway inflammation. I had allergy testing and had a mild reaction to ragweed. I was prescribed Ventolin HFA and Asmanex. I took these medications and had a lot of side effects from both medications. The side effects felt worse than the actual symptoms.
Avatar f tn Can't say that I get that symptom but everyone is different. What inhaler is it? Ventolin or a steroid one? Ventolin normally increases heart rate and makes you shaky. I don't know of any inhalers that make you drowsy?
Avatar m tn A couple of weeks later, I was contacted by the county health department and offered to begin a 6-month regimen of INH antibiotic. I began my INH course on 12/29/2010 and completed it on 06/02/2011 -- 6 months in total with a little card from the health department certifying my compliance. My concern is that yesterday, I was coming home from vacation when a homeless-looking man (a smoker) coughed right in the direction of my friend and I. It was pretty disgusting, to say the least.
Avatar m tn Because of the higher affinity of the autoantibody for native C1-INH, the 95-kd antibody/C1-INH complex dissociates, and the freed antibody can bind to another native C1-INH molecule, allowing for the further depletion of C1-INH." Can HIV sero conversion effect this? Or is that only after an HIV+ person has reached AIDS status?
Avatar n tn Talk to your doctor. It might just be from your clothing, but hard to say.
Avatar n tn In the past two years I have been diagnosed twice with bronchitis and have been treated with antibiotics and an Albuterol Suffate inhaler (generic name Ventolin HFA 90MCG) both of which have provided relief. I am reluctant to take antibiotics but sometimes you just have to.
Avatar m tn When Albuterol was taken off the market she prescribed Ventolin HFA inhaler. I used to go into my PCP for a breathing inhaling solution to help me breathe if I whenever I contracted bronchitis, and she also placed me on steroid, cough syrup and antibiotics for the bronchitis which at times left me very breathless. Last March 2014 I developed bronchitis and went in to see my PCP, and she gave me a breathing test, and said my asthma developed into COPD.
Avatar n tn ve lived in the same town my whole life and no change in living conditions. My doctor prescribed me Pro Air HFA. Immediately I was using it more than the recommended amounts. It makes me very jittery and makes my hands shake. When I came in I was told to keep using it and then prescribed Qvar. The Qvar gave me debilitating headaches. I've since stopped taking both but the headaches and shaking still continue.
Avatar n tn Yours was a violent reaction to isoniazid (INH). Indeed you should not take INH again, but there are alternatives. Glad you survived this severe drug reaction. Before you and your doctor resort to an alternative, you must be sure that there is no evidence of active tuberculosis, as that would determine the optimum therapeutic regimen.
378225 tn?1201730140 Someone I know has been taking INH meds for 9 months. How long after taking INH medication can they begin drinking alcohol?
Avatar n tn I'm a 44-year old female, with asthmatic allergic response to cats since childhood. I smoked off and on from 18-39, about 5 pack-years. I've lived near a cat (outdoors with access to my husband's study) for 18 years, and have treated my asthma with albuterol, adding ventolin when necessary. About 12 weeks ago I caught bronchitis, then wildfires broke out near my home that made the air unhealthy for about 2 weeks. This provoked a severe asthma attack -- for three weeks.
429700 tn?1308007823 Have you had any trouble with your liver enzymes being elevated while on Gilenya? It's looking more and more like I'll be starting this medicine. My doctor put me on INH as a prophylaxis to prevent TB due to history of past infection (latent TB). I noticed that a potential side effect of INH is liver problems. My GP will be monitoring me on this medicine (INH). I have to go back in three months to get tested for liver problems.
Avatar f tn In my own case with AS, I tell people I have a brilliant mind with lousy PR and that I am stuck somewhere between Rainman and Spock at the social level. At 63, there is no such thing as an actual diagnosis for me, but saying I have HFA (rather than trying to explain AS) typically results in people saying I do not appear autistic. If you have never visited ****.net, maybe have a look.
Avatar f tn Advair is only a maintence drug which will only help you over time but it is not an emergency inhaler (like ventolin or proair). Advair if not taken as prescribed can make things worse and can make you very ill. Please never take more than the 4 puffs per day. Anxiety can do really bizarre things to people. It can make you feel like you are sufficating.
Avatar n tn There is no direct connection between pulmonary emboli and tuberculosis (TB), including skin test conversion. Yes, the prophylactic administration of isoniazid (INH) for a TB chest conversion may cause inflammation of the liver, but does so in a minority of individuals taking the medicine. However, there is also the risk of liver inflammation due to the medicine Crestor® (rosuvastatin) and it is conceivable that there could be an additive effect of Crestor® (rosuvastatin) and INH.
Avatar f tn It was discovered I was exposed to the TB germ when I was a kid. I was given INH treatment for 6 months. I am 36 years old now and have had no problems. I still test postive and scar tissue is noted on my chest x ray but so far so good. I think the best person to answer your questions would be your sons pediatrician.
Avatar n tn I am worried about the availability of Ventolin inhalers. Some months i may need to use more than one Ventolin inhalers based on my asthma triggers. Will it be a problem to get 2 ventolin inhaler prescription per month in US.
920032 tn?1550680156 I don very well with the HFA versions. If you were on a dry powder, you might have been having problems with the milk by products in them keeping your peak flow down. My guess would be that your current phlegm problem is from the inflammation and asthma even though your peak flows are improving. If you aren't working with your dr to reduce your steroid use, you should really see your asthma doctor to make sure that your asthma is not flaring.
