In asthma lungs have more mucus, but do not fill with fluid. ...Read more

I have a problem of asthma( med. Salbutamol sulphate  rotacaps 200mcg ) & premature ejeculation?

See answer: Premature ejaculation (pe) is the most common sexual dysfunction in men. Both psychological and biological factors play a role in pe. Penile hypersensitivity has long been debated as one of the leading causes of pe. I am unaware of salbutamol being a causative factor but if pe only occurs when you take it, obviously a link.

I've been diagnosed with both chronic bronchitis and asthma and was wondering what the early signs of COPD are? My asthma has been gradually worsening

I've been diagnosed with both chronic bronchitis and asthma and was wondering what the early signs of COPD are? My asthma has been gradually worsening

Quit smoking: Even a single cigarette would impact your lung adversely so that's one thing you must do right now. The early sign of COPD is that your airway obstruction has become irreversible but I think you are still at an age when stopping smoking may reverse the trend. Smoking also reduces your airway's response to inhaled steroid as well. Quit and you'll be glad that you did. ...Read more
