I’m asthmatic and on chronic medicine twice a day (Symbicort Turbohaler, flomist, neo claryntine). I’m not feeling unwell or like I’m having an asthma attack but can feel that I’m not breathing 100% and am sounding very hoarse. Is something wrong?

Yes: The hoarseness may be from the Symbicort especially if you didn't gargle and rinse out the cortisone deposited on your throat area after each treatment. You may also have vocal cord dysfunction which may be associated with phonation and a sense of not getting enough breath in. Consult an allergist. ...Read more

Would you recommend flumist? How does flumist work and can you recommend it?

I never do: Flu mist is a made by combining weakened strains of the flu virus, squirting it in your nose, & letting it create a minor lung infection to cross into your blood. It is not approved for very young patients or those with asthma or several other conditions. It is certainly attractive to needle phobic patients & kids, but I quit using it in my office after a kid had an asthma episode a day later. ...Read more

What is flumist? Does flumist contain dead or live virus and how does it work?

What is flumist? Does flumist contain dead or live virus and how does it work?

FluMist : Flumist is an influenza vaccine given as a nasal spray. It differs from the traditional influenza vaccine in that it contains live, attenuated strains of influenza virus. These are weak virus strains that cannot cause disease. By contrast, the injectable influenza vaccine contains killed influenza virus or virus fragments. Both forms of influenza vaccine work by allowing your immune system to become familiar with the virus, so that protective antibodies are generated that prevent later infection with active virus. Theoretically, FluMist might give better protection against the flu because exposure is through the nose, which is the way most natural flu infections occur. Studies have had varied results; data suggests that FluMist gives superior protection to the injectable vaccine in children, but that the injectable vaccine is better than FluMist in adults. In all studies, the differences were small, and FluMist appears to be an effective option for adults and children. Flumist is recommended for healthy children and adults. It is not recommended for people with serious medical conditions or impaired immune systems, due to the remote chance that they could be made ill by the live virus. This has not been reported, but is theoretically possible. While unlikely, the live virus used in FluMist could be spread to others, so the injectable vaccine is preferred for those who have close contact with people who should not receive flumist. ...Read more
