Asthma Drug Medication
Cellulite lotion: Aminophylline has been a useful drug for asthma. It is still used but not as frequently. When used by mouth or intravenously we are able to check the blood levels to avoid toxicity. It's use for the cellulites as a local application is quite safe. However, the effectiveness is controversial. I guess there will be no harm in trying. Please share your experience. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Preventative drug: Medications such as symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) which contain and inhaled corticosteroid are used as maintenance (preventive) therapy to control persistent asthma. The formoterol component is a long-acting airway opener and may provide some initial relief of acute asthma symptoms; however symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) should never be used to relieve acute asthma symptoms (use your rescue albuterol under those conditions). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Safe: Albuterol and the other rescue beta-agonists are generally safe. You may get a rapid heart beat ... But it is better than dying of asthma or suffering. The reason we like to minimize rescue inhalers is that they don't treat the underlying illness - airway inflammation. Inhaled steroids do this well for most sufferers. See your doc for more information. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Good Luck ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Its now 10 years my father live with asthma is there a way to be health and what a drug is good what must he do?
I am 31, 5'2", and 200 lbs with asthma. My weight affects my breathing. Is there a drug to lose weight fast so i can start exercising to lose weight?
No such miracle: You will need to reduce the carb intake (alcohol and sugar) and get on a high-protein or nearly vegan diet. But regular exercise is the key. You can start with walking more- just 10 mins here and there add up (get a pedometer? ). Weight training will also be needed- just enough for you to feel some resistance. Evergreen trees do not usually produce allergens. Now get with the program. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: If attacks are infrequent and , mild, a rescue inhaler and avoidance of triggers would suffice.

Controllers reduce inflammation and minimize your attacks. When used together, most asthmatics do pretty well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible to eventually eliminate the use of Asthma drugs like Advair through exercise or will I always be dependent of one of these drugs.
Difficult to say: Though asthma is a chronic condition, your dose of advair (for instance) may go down and possibly eliminated but there are no guarantees. Exercise is definitely a good way of improving your lung function but do discuss your routine with your physician. Don't overdo it. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
