Bronchitis: Infections may return if the bacteria (or virus) is reintroduced into the area, or a new infection started, or you have underlying asthma or reactive airway disease that may predispose you to getting sick.

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

When i complained about dry eyes n severe dry mouth, doc changed my med from nortriptyline 50mg to dothiepin 50mg. Will this solve the problem?

Almost every med has the possible side-effect of dry mouth but if you need it you mayneed to deal with it. There are other ways to combat dry mouth - keeping hydrated with water is the best but your dentist should be able to guide you. ...Read more
