Age 33. Diagnosed with asthma / small airway disease. Prescribed advair diskus (salmeterol and fluticasone) 250/50 and proair hfa. Took a peak flow meter test and blew 350 l/min. Is that bad? Recommendations on how to improve?
Don't look: The peak flow rate is based on your height and sex and thus can't tell whether yours is bad or not. The more important point is how much has it changed from your pfr when you not have breathing problem. As suggested by dr pizzo, you should consult an allergist to help manage your problem. There is a chance that the atenolol may adversely impact your asthma. Fev-1 is superior to pfr. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Diagnosed small airway disease / asthma. On advair diskuz 250/50 and proair hfa. Would it be beneficial to get a finger pulse oximeter and a peak flow meter to track (especially during attacks)?
A peak flow suffices: And it is better to monitor and record ur peak flow readings am and pm, there are variations, night timereadings are bit lower, that would help ur md better direct your treatment and as well would predict if any astham exacrbation would happen hours ahead of time, an asthma action plan planned with ur 1ry md or with ur allergist will help, no need for an oximeter, review all ur meds with ur md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Just don't suddenly quit your meds. ...Read more

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

Re: cold air asthma--advair seems to make me catch every infection under the sun. Albuterol only helps a little. What other options are there?
Ipratropium: My asthma patients, and I have quite a few, don't report increased respiratory infections when they take advair or other inhaled corticosteroids to help control their asthma. Quite the opposite, really. So this unusual association is something you should report to your physician. Atrovent (ipratropium) is a useful bronchodilator that can help block symptoms of triggered asthma by cold air. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
