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.

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
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?

Have your physician reevaluate your controller treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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.

All three are prescription; discuss side effects w/ provider. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Relief vs. control: Every patient with asthma needs a quick relief inhaler and the most common is albuterol or the isomer lev-albuterol (same effect with less amount of medication.) for controller medications, corticosteroid inhalers (qvar, flovent, pulmicort, asmanex) are very similar except Qvar is very small size and better lung deposition.

Can asthma or asthma medications give me trouble getting an erection? I've never had this problem till they put me on these meds for asthma? Help
Erection problem: I see asmanex as your asthma medication and methylprednisone. Methylprednisone is usually temporary and if that's the reason for erection dysfunction, then it should restore soon after it's discontinued. Asmanex doesn't list erectile dysfunction as a side effect. If there is any other medication you are on, let us know. ...Read more
