I've been sick for 2 weeks with bronchitis & today I went to my pulmonologist (i have asthma), who gave me performist & budesonide for my nebulizer in place of my advair. Is there any side effects?

Asthma: You are on the same classes of medications. Advair is fluticasone and salmeterol. The advantage of the nebulized medications is that they can be easier to use when you are short of breath. Most patients say they feel that they get more of the medications when they are nebulized versus orally inhaled especially when they are short of breath, . ...Read more

I have had asthma many years. I am having a problem getting my. Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) so. My MD put me on a nebulizer for now. My left lung clears but not the right?

Different doses of prednisone for 1yr. Now on 40mg-asthma, respiratory infection. Taking symbicort, (budesonide and formoterol) nebulizer, rescue inhaler. BP is high. Is it meds?

Possibly: I am very concerned that you have been on prednisone for a year for asthma. That is not good at all. I think you need to step up your preventive asthma therapy, adding in other preventives to your inhaled steroid, among other things. See a specialist for this asap. Yes, the elevated BP may be steroid related. ...Read more
