Avatar f tn 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 ... Guess what? My peak flow DROPPED, then they believed me :) You can be allergic to ventolin itself but there are other medication you can try.
Avatar f tn I have an asthma that could occur for more than once per day. But I am allergic to asthma medications, such as inhalers and a local asthma medicine called "asma soho" (that contains Ephedrine hydrochloride and Theophylline). I do yoga 1-3 times a week, yet the asthma still occurs regularly. What should I do?
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.
Avatar m tn Hydrofluoroalkane, or HFA, inhalers use a different form of propellant compared to the older CFC (chlorofluorocarbon) inhalers. CFCs have been found to damage the ozone layer and cause other environmental problems.
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 f tn Unfortunately with asthma you cannot treat it without inhalers and medication. Ventolin is going to be the best immediate action inhaler to help open your airways - it is a fairly safe drug and worth it. You MAY need other medications to help lower your overall inflammation which is the cause of asthma symptoms.
2206935 tn?1373638605 No you are not doing wrong if you do not take your inhalers. You have been prescribed with inhalers and it is your choice if you use them or not. It depends on your symptoms and how badly you get attacks. You may find in the winter months your asthma may be triggered off again, and you may need the use of your inhalers. Do your doctors' practise have a clinic to check people with asthma how they are doing?
746512 tn?1388807580 If you are having troubles with your ventolin not working .... don't be stupid like me. Get a new one and see if it helps. I found out mine was completely empty last night when I woke up last night in an attack and the ventolin didn't work very well. Why does the advair have a counter on inhaler and ventolin doesn't?? does not make sense to me!
Avatar n tn Flovent inhaler contains steroids and is given to prevent an attack of asthma. Ventolin inhalers contain the active ingredient salbutamol, which is a type of medicine known as a short-acting beta 2 agonist. This is given when a person actually has an attack of Asthma, and is referred to as an ‘escape inhaler’. It would be good to have it with you, handy to use it when you need it. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.
Avatar f tn What strength are you on? Also, are you on the discus or the Hfa? Dry powder inhalers like the discus can cause more irritation because of the size of the particles and they contain milk. Also, dry powder inhalers are hard to use. I would suggest that if you really need a maintenance med that you ask about an Hfa version and get a spacer to take it with. Take care and feel better.
1515545 tn?1291395764 Does anyone know where to get free inhalers, or inhalers filled for free?
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 of 2013, im 28 weeks pregnant and im still smokin cigarettes.
Avatar f tn after being on the blue Ventolin inhaler I had experienced severe headaches and a jittery feeling in me everytime I took it, the headaches became increasingly worse so I got took off Ventolin and put on Bricanyl Turbohaler. I have been using Bricanyl along with my brown inhaler and antihistamines as it was believed that I had allergic asthma.

Avatar f tn s, Consultants, had chest xrays, bloods, ENT scopes down my nose, endoscopy, steroid inhalers, asthma inhalers, allergy medication yet NOTHING stops this horrible tickle in my throat which makes me cough! My wheeze is like there is something stuck in my throat! I take my ventolin blue inhaler and the wheeze goes for about a day then the next morning its back again! I have taken medication for reflux which did nothing!
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 m tn This can cause bloating of stomach and consequent breathlessness. Check with your doctor for adequate control of asthma. Ventolin or salbutamol is a rescue inhaler, that means you take this when you have an episode of Asthma. There are reliever inhalers which work for up to 12 hours after taking each dose. They include salmeterol (brand name Serevent) and formoterol (brand name Atimos). Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Regards.
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.

Avatar n tn and has prescribed me with ventolin. This does make breathing easier but can I become dependent on it even once the virus has gone? Many thanks in advance for advice.
