Can i get an anxiety, panic attacks and asthma from gastroesophageal reflux disease?

Panic ; Anxiety: I agree with dr. Burns that asthma can certainly develop secondary to gerd. However, physical sensations can be especially alarming to people who are prone to anxiety. This does not mean that gerd "causes" the anxiety or panic attacks -- your system is just extremely fine-tuned to physical sensation. This triggers your oversensitive system to react with anxiety. Cbt can help anxiety a lot! ...Read more

I've heard that long-acting beta agonists (LABAs) can cause severe asthma attacks. Should I stop taking them?

I've heard that long-acting beta agonists (LABAs) can cause severe asthma attacks. Should I stop taking them?

In some studies, long-acting beta agonists (LABAs) have been linked to life-threatening asthma attacks: The risk appears to be greatest when a LABA is used without also using an inhaled corticosteroid. In contrast, taking an inhaled corticosteroid along with a LABA is appropriate treatment for many people who have asthma. Don't stop any of your asthma medications before checking with your doctor first. LABAs are used on a regular schedule to open up narrowed airways and prevent asthma attacks. But because they increase the risk of having a life-threatening asthma attack, the Food and Drug Administration warns that LABAs should never be used without an inhaled corticosteroid. So if you're taking a LABA without an inhaled corticosteroid, check with your doctor. LABAs include: Salmeterol (Serevent), Formoterol (Foradil, Perforomist), Arformoterol (Brovana). A LABA should be taken with an inhaled corticosteroid, such as: Fluticasone (Flonase, Flovent HFA), Budesonide (Pulmicort Flexhaler, Pulmicort Respules, Rhinocort), Mometasone (Asmanex), Flunisolide (Aerobid, Aerospan), Beclomethasone (Qvar, Qnasl). One option is to take a single medication that combines both a LABA and a corticosteroid. There are three of these medications on the market: Salmeterol and fluticasone (Advair), Formoterol and budesonide (Symbicort), Formoterol and mometasone (Dulera). Children who need both a LABA and a corticosteroid should take them only as a combination medication, and not as separate medications. The benefits of LABAs to keep asthma under control generally outweigh the risks — if they're used as recommended. If you have any questions about your asthma medications, talk to your doctor. To be safe: Confirm with your doctor that you know how to take your medications. , Keep a quick-relief (rescue) inhaler on hand. , Meet with your doctor on a regular basis. , Talk to your doctor if your asthma isn't under control. . LABAs are sometimes used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). When used for COPD, LABAs don't have the same risks that are associated with asthma, so these warnings and recommendations don't apply. . ...Read more
