Meds for asthma: There are 2 basic types of medications for asthma, and any patient who has frequent symptoms needs both types. Rescue inhalers are bronchodilators like albuterol, that relax the smoothe muscles and promote the movement of secretions.

For what reason can't people with asthma get the nasal spray flu vaccine?

For what reason can't people with asthma get the nasal spray flu vaccine?

Asthma flare up: The nasal vaccine is weakened but living flu germ.To get into your system and produce a vaccine response, it must cross through the lung tissue.

Unlikely: Asthma inhalers help open the airways in acute attacks. Not sure about the particular situation of your friend but if she waits too long to use the inhaler for an attack, she may not respond to it as quickly as expected. She needs to discuss her treatment with her doctor. ...Read more

What spray or inhaler should I use for bronchial asthma?

What spray or inhaler should I use for bronchial asthma?

Not an easy answer: For immediate relief of coughing, wheezing, or shortness of breath use albuterol or a similar bronchodilator. For control of underlying airway inflammation and if you require albuterol more than twice weekly use an inhaled corticosteroid or a combination of inhaled corticosteroid and long-acting bronchodilator. Best advice: discuss with your primary care physician, a pulmonologist or an allergist. ...Read more

Will my asthma inhaler stop working if I don't use it for 3 weeks ? I mean will spray malfunction?

Will my asthma inhaler stop working if I don't use it for 3 weeks ? I mean will spray malfunction?

Prime it: Some inhalers requires priming with the 1st trigger mainly to fill up the delivery sprout and thus will not deliver medication. On the other hand if you were using inhaled steroid as a controller drug, it may not work after 3 weeks either due to loss of asthma control from the lack of medication or the fact that it takes 2-3 weeks for it to give you optimal results. ...Read more
