Just don't suddenly quit your meds. ...Read more

It's OK: It is OK to use this combination when instructed to do so by your doctor for acute asthma problems. Advair is a maintenance medication that contains a steroid and a long-acting beta agonist.

I was prescribed advair; my ins. Does not cover it; substituted flovent; now my ins, does not cover that. Proventil (albuterol) is not working 4 my symptoms.?

Provnetil: Is a rescue inhaler, only to be used as needed or pre-exercise, not on a regular basis.
Flovent and advair are maintenance medications which are both to be taken on a regular basis.

Advair is a daily maintenance medication. It's use should in theory reduce or eliminate the need for the use of a rescue medication (eg albuterol). If both are needed albuterol is first. ...Read more

Can Flovent, advair or albuterol cause severe tingling, prickliness and itchiness? Are these any of the side effects? Thanks

Can Flovent, advair or albuterol cause severe tingling, prickliness and itchiness? Are these any of the side effects? Thanks

Probably not: What you described is more likely hyperventilation syndrome except for the itching. These drugs are more likely to cause tremor and occasionally muscle cramps and not the symptoms you have described. Uncontrolled asthma may cause hyperventilation which may cause the tingling and
"prickliness" sensation. Although allergy to steroid itself has been reported, it it mostly related to contact allergy ...Read more

Re: cold air asthma--advair seems to make me catch every infection under the sun. Albuterol only helps a little. What other options are there?

Re: cold air asthma--advair seems to make me catch every infection under the sun. Albuterol only helps a little. What other options are there?

Ipratropium: My asthma patients, and I have quite a few, don't report increased respiratory infections when they take advair or other inhaled corticosteroids to help control their asthma. Quite the opposite, really. So this unusual association is something you should report to your physician. Atrovent (ipratropium) is a useful bronchodilator that can help block symptoms of triggered asthma by cold air. ...Read more

On 250/50 advair/albuterol. Third time I've stopped mid-run because of serious shortness if breath, wheezing, and coughing. Change or up medication?

Go see your doctor: Advair 250/50 is different from & does not contain albuterol.

Advair is used to prevent asthma attacks while albuterol is used to rescue you from one. If you've had 3 attacks despite advair, you need to check w/your doc. Make sure you're using proper technique, too. Spacer? ...Read more

I'm on Combivent, (albuterol and ipratropium) Albuterol inhaler PRN, Advair 500/50 & Singular. Is it a safe combo to be on long term? I have bad asthma and I'm prone to pneumonia

Yes...: This is a safe med combo for treatment of asthma. You should rinse your mouth and spit it out after every Advair dose to prevent thrush, a complication of inhaled steroids. If your asthma exacerbations decrease over time, it is possible that your meds can be reduced (under doctor's supervision) but this combo is safe long-term. Be sure to never smoke! ...Read more

I have asthma. Take singulair, (montelukast) proventil, and advair. 5 weeks pregnant & advised not to take advair. How often can I use proventil without harming baby?

Asthma: If you are having to use albuterol numerous times a day for shortness of then you would benefit from the steroid Budesonide which has been found to be safe in pregnancy. The greater harm is to not use medication that will keep you from having worsening asthma symptoms while pregnant. Take care if yourself and your baby.

My asthma-like symptoms that developed after swimming in pool cleared up quickly on ventolin/advair. Does this mean they are definitely due to asthma?

Not necessarily: The right trigger will make anyone wheeze. If you have no prior lung issues, then it was likely a reactive bronchospasm which may have had an allergic or chemical trigger since were at pool. Will need a recheck in a couple weeks with pulmonary function test to see if resolved or ongoing impairment. ...Read more

Congrats on being: Smoke free. That's a great accomplishment. Please don't let your asthma symptoms be an excuse to start smoking again. That will make things worse.
