Second opinion: Not sure why you would be intolerant of most inhailers. It's not that common. If you're intolerant to the powder used in inhailers, there are other formulations available that can deliver the same medications to your lungs such as nebulized medicines.

Dr jack mutnic can montelukast 10mg tablet, worsen an asthma cough. I get post nasal drip but its improved when not taking it?
Perhaps: If montelukast reduces your nasal congestion, it may open up your sinuses and thereby increases the post-nasal drips transiently. Another potential answer is that if montelukast reduces the airway obstruction, the mucus trapped in the airways below may start to move upstream and be coughed out. If it works as mentioned, then the cough should improve in less than 2 weeks. ...Read more

Asthma-coughing fits between Nebulizer/albuterol treatments. Better to steam/cool mist? Foods/teas? Sit up, lay, walk? I cough until I gag/cry.
See your doctor: Sounds like your asthma is may need a tune up. Go see your doctor, you likely need a steroid inhaler or possibly a combination inhaler with albuterol and a steroid to help calm things down. Moist air may help a bit (like the nebulizer) but sounds like you need more than that. Positioning your body, certain foods likely won't make a difference either. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Vague question: Many of the issues triggering wheezing in a 1 yo are infectious and not true asthma. I rarely use the label at that age unless there is a strong family history of asthma and the kid has eczema or other associated problems. Control of any set of symptoms takes a good baseline history & evaluation followed by an individualized plan. This is best devised by the doc who knows the patient best. ...Read more

Honey may work for cough some times but you need to know the cause for the cough first. ...Read more
