Asmanex Twisthaler Dosage
I am on asmanex twisthaler now to help with my asthma, but I don't feel like I am getting anything. I have asked and I am doing it right. Not sure?
See below: Asmanex is a maintenance medication, you are not expected to feel like you are getting anything after you take it. This is a common misconception. Is your asthma getting better overall? That is how you measure your response. If not, there are other similar medications that may help you, talk to your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What are the side effects of smz/tmp ds generic for bactrim ds and asmanex twisthaler. Thank you ?
Usually none, but...: Bactrim (smz/tmp) is a sulfa antibiotic that can sometimes cause allergic drug reactions on the skin, such as red rashes, hives, or occasionally worse. Stomach upset, with or without diarrhea, can happen with any antibiotic. Asmanex is an inhaled powder, so can cause a cough in a few people very sensitive to the powder. Asmanex is a steroid, so may cause oral thrush if one doesn't rinse and spit. ...Read more
Hx: asthma, pts = sm airway, asmanex x1 qhs. New prescription mn txs unit dose albuterol q4 prn. Used 13 of 25 doses in 40 days. Is this reasonable frequency?
No: You should not be using a rescue inhaler as frequently as you are describing. It would appear that you are constantly being exposed to your "trigger(s)" and your controller is not working effectively. Have your physician reevaluate your controller treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Common side effects include fungal mouth infections (“thrush”) which appear as white patches and can be avoided by rinsing mouth after each use. Other common side effects, which may go away over time, are headaches, fatigue, depression, muscle and joint pain, runny nose, sinus infection, and sore throat. If any of these do not go away after a few days, report them to your doctor. ...Read more
Apples and oranges: You cannot make this type of comparison since we are talking about to different drugs. Asthmanex is an inhaled cortisone while singulair is entirely different. Both are used as controllers but with different outcomes. Talk it over with your physician Good Luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have asthma and take asmanex daily and albuterol 3-4 times per week before exercise. Should I be worried about this level of medication use?
Controlled asthma: If you require rescue medication (albuterol) more than once or twice a month for breakthrough wheezing, it would be wise to let your doctor know. Otherwise ( in most cases) routine use of preventative Rx (inhaled steroids and pre-exercise albuterol) as prescribed are usually safer long term than uncontrolled asthma. Regimens should be reviewed frequently to minimize medication dose and frequency ...Read more
Occasionally when allergy is high i get mild SOB and some light wheezing. Asmanex VS. Singulair. Which one is better to treat Allergy induced Asthma.
Depends : Montelukast (Singulair) works well in some patients, but inhaled steroids (Asmanex is one of several) are more reliably effective, in general. Singulair has the advantage of helping nasal and eye allergies, too. Always start with a emergency inhaler like albuterol first. All three are prescription; discuss side effects w/ provider. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
