Hx: asthma, pts = sm airway, asmanex x1 qhs. New prescription mn txs unit dose albuterol q4 prn.  Used 13 of 25 doses in 40 days. Is this reasonable frequency?

No: You should not be using a rescue inhaler as frequently as you are describing. It would appear that you are constantly being exposed to your "trigger(s)" and your controller is not working effectively. Have your physician reevaluate your controller treatment. ...Read more

Psych has prescribed D3 5,000 iu, B12 500 mcg & Rhodiola 400/600 mgs daily for depression.I also take simvastatin and levothyroxine.is it ok to take ?

Snake oil: Hi. Vitamin D3 is awesome for vitamin D deficiency, and oral vitamin B12 is awesome for vitamin B12 deficiency that is not due to pernicious anemia (autoimmune B12 defic.), but they are not a treatment for depression. There are no scientific data to support rhodiola for depression. They're all very nice placebo for depression. At least simvastatin and l-thyroxine are being used for real reasons(?) ...Read more

TSH:5.1, FT4:16.8. Took levothyroxine 25 micrograms/day for 4 weeks. TSH 0.4, FT4:17.6. worry TSH dropped too low. Can I half my dosage to 12.5/day??

Ask your doc but...: No doc here should tell you to change the dose your doctor prescribed, but I do not think TSH is useful to assess your dose; it should be based on how you feel and your Free T3 level; many still have suboptimal T3 on levothyroxine & thus need liothyronine too.

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

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. Treatment options include: sex therapy, ssri meds, and topical therapy. ...Read more

I'm using 2 rotacaps for asthma (salbutamol sulphate& ipratropium bromide, fluticasino propionate& formaterol fumarate). Is the long term use safe?

I am advised to take 2-3 dosages of combihale fb 200 inhaler (budesonide-200mcg and formoterol-6mcg) 2 puffs each day. Is it safe for long term?

I am advised to take 2-3 dosages of combihale fb 200 inhaler (budesonide-200mcg and formoterol-6mcg) 2 puffs each day. Is it safe for long term?

Budesonide/formotero: I assume you are taking it for asthma. Long acting b2 agonists such as formoterol have a black box warning to increase the risk of death. It seems to be somewhat attenuated when taken along with a steroid formulation such as Budesonide as in your case. Most people do fine using this long term, though. ...Read more
