Asthma And Nasonex
If I take regular nasonex/ and steriod inhalors due asthma, regularly will it cause some side effects? Thanks
Steroid inhalers: Steroid inhalers have minimal systemic side effects but locally they can cause increased monilial infections in the throat and pharyngeal bacterial infections also. Chronic use of nasal inhalers, may dry the mucosal and cause bleeding problems.
My son is on advair, singulair and nasonex (mometasone). He's been on several steroid treatments due to asthma attacks but nothing besides the steroids will work!?
What are the best treatments for asthma and allergies? I am using nasonex, spirivia, albueterol, and benadryl (diphenhydramine). Plus doing sinus rinses. Still sick.
Asthma guidelines: If you do have asthma spireva is not an asthma medication, although is sometimes of benefit especially if there is also copd. I cannot tell you what is the correct asthma medication for you. You need to see a board certified allergist for appropriate evaluation and treatment of your entire respiratory system.See 1 more doctor answer

You don't: Asthma is a chronic condition of increased small airway reactions. There are genetic and environmental factors that persist throughout life, usually becoming evident in childhood. One learns to live with their asthma & present medications offer a near normal existence to most. There is no cure, there are programs that promote stability & reduced flare ups through early recognition of problems.
Controlled: Asthma is a chronic disease and the aim is to control the symptoms. It is not "cured" but as it is controlled symptoms become less frequent. Always look for triggers in the environment and I your home, as well as seasonal allergic triggers. Infections, scents, changes in weather can all trigger symptoms. Learn about your meds and always follow your action plan.See 3 more doctor answers
Many: The most important factor is genetics, the second is the environment. At least half of the asthma cases are related to allergies, others mostly unknown and often called intrinsic asthma. Tobacco exposure, viral infection, aside from allergic triggers, often exacerbate asthma. For further details check www. Aaaai. Org.
Lung testing.: Asthma involves inflammation, muscle spasm and mucus production in the airways. It is diagnosed by history, physical exam, and lung function testing. Patients often complain of chest tightness, wheezing, cough, and shortness of breath. It can occur in any age group, although it is the most common chronic illness in children.See 2 more doctor answers
Inhalers & avoidance: Avoiding things that trigger your asthma, such as dust or animals, can help. Most asthma is controlled with short acting inhalers like albuterol, & long acting inhaled steroids. Albuterol helps acute attacks; inhaled steroids help prevent attacks from happening in the first place. Other meds, such as singulair (montelukast) or oral steroids, are used when these aren't enough to keep it under control.See 3 more doctor answers
Airway inflammation: Simplistically, asthma is characterized by airway inflammation, and falls into the classification of allergic or atopic diseases. In response to various "allergens", such as pollens, mold, dander, etc., the body creates an inflammatory response which leads to bronchoconstriction. In some, this is chronic, in others, this can be occasional or "episodic." therapy is generally straightforward.See 2 more doctor answers
Possibilities: This time of year there are a number of possibilities - this is a high season for ragweed and tree allergies. You might also have a viral or bronchial infection. I would seek medical advice in person if you are experiencing a significant worsening of your asthma. Sometimes asthma exacerbations can be shortened if treated early.See 1 more doctor answer
Night...: Nocturnal refers to night time. So, nocturnal asthma is present when an asthmatic awakens from sleep with asthma sxs like shortness of breath, cough, etc. There are medications that can be given to try to prevent this from happening. Keep track of how often this happens, what time the awakenings occur, exact sxs present, etc so your doctor can prescribe an effective regimen for you.See 1 more doctor answer
