Do You Know Of Any Ways Of Getting Rid Of Wheezing Without An Asthma Inhaler
Yes: The mainstay of asthma treatment, and the main reason to get an allergist involved, is to identify the allergens that trigger your wheezing and let your allergist educate you about how to reduce your exposure to these allergens. The primary role of asthma inhalers is to reduce the lung inflammation that you can't control through allergen avoidance alone. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Some water went down my windpipe and am coughing. Afraid of secondary drowning but i can breathe ok now. Will my asthma inhaler help if im still wheezing after awhile? Also getting a headache that doesnt mean water is on my brain does it?
Water in trachea: The water in your wind pipe (trachea) will not drown you but will cause coughing at the time amid could transiently aggravate your asthma so the use of your inhaler in this setting would be helpful. The headache does not mean water on the brain. The headache is likely from the coughing and will pass. You will be ok. ...Read more
Does anything bad happen if someone uses an asthma inhaler for a cold, but didn't have asthma symptoms then?
Were you coughing?: A rescue inhaler, no. If taken appropriately and it gave you relief within 5-10 minutes, this means you probably had some bronchitis.If it didn't have any effect and you stopped taking it, it didn't damage your lungs or heart. Now, don't keep taking other peoples medication. Especially, not maintenance inhalers. See your doctor and to determine if you need some prescribed for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I've never had asthma before but i'm in belieze and i've been experiencing a lot of wheezing. Should i try and get an inhaler? If so, what kind?
Wheezing: Beside asthma, bronchitis and other lung or heart diseases can cause wheezing. I would suggest you see a local physician for better diagnosis. In the mean time before you can see a physician, an albuterol inhaler might temporarily relieve wheezing. However you still would need to be seen by a physician so no severe pathologies are missed. Have a safe trip. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Got a tickly dry feeling in my lungs, sort of like my lungs are thirsty. Used my asthma inhaler (I get mild asthma sometimes) but it's come back again?
Asthma: The asthma rescue inhaler should last a few hours. If you need it more than just 2-3 times per week then we need to step up treatment and add a controller medicine typically, a steroid inhaler which is safe. Continue this until your doctor says to stop. Most likely, this is just temporary. ...Read more
Can lungs get dependent on daily asthma inhaler? Could I have outgrown my asthma even though i wake up feeling short of breath until i take symbicort (budesonide and formoterol)?
Asthma remissions: Appropriate asthma therapy does not make you dependent on it, rather appropriate therapy allows for minimization of symptoms. Although in children and teens asthma may seem to go into remission, if you still need your combination asthma medication, symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) it is unlikely yours has. ...Read more
My method: The pocket chamber spacer has a lot going for it - small size, smaller price. Like all modern inhaler devices it has a one-way valve so your exhaled breath does not return to the holding chamber. (1) activate inhaler (2) begin inhaling within 1 second (3) inhale slowly to a count of 5 (1, one thousand, 2...) (4) hold breath to count of 10 (5) exhale (6) wait 30 seconds (7) repeat with 2nd dose. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Need inhaler: The preferred treatment for relief of asthma symptoms including cough, wheezing, chest tightness is albuterol by inhaler or nebulizer. Avoiding the trigger (smoke, etc) can help and remaining calm will help, but asthma can be serious (life-threatening) and delaying treatment with medications can lead to poor outcomes. ...Read more
What are the symptoms of symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) and other asthma inhaler medicines?
Inhalers: I assume you are asking about side effects. All combination inhalers, including advair, symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) and Dulera have a steroid component and a long acting bronchodilator. The steroids can cause oral thrush, so you need to drink water after use, the laba can cause you to be jittery, gives you palpitations insomnia. Most are generally well tolerated. Other inhalers have one of the components. ...Read more
