Is it safe to take beta blockers for pvcs if alsi have asthma?

Is it safe to take beta blockers for pvcs if alsi have asthma?

Maybe not: B-blockers result in bronchconstriction, meaning the airways tend to close whereas b-agonists tend to bronchodilate, or open the airways. So, b-blockers may result in airway closure leading to acute asthma symptoms. (note: even b-blocker eye drops can have this effect!) some b-blockers do this to a lesser extent than others so check with your doctor first. ...Read more

Can you explain if it's safe using oral inhaler for asthma or vising?

Can you explain if it's safe using oral inhaler for asthma or vising?

Vising?: Did you mean visine or vaporizing ? As for oral inhaler, the bronchodilator ones should not be used regularly as a maintenance medication since it may actually worsen your asthma. The steroid one can be safely used without or with a long-acting bronchodilator with little or no significant long term side effects except in very high doses. Either the nebulized or meter-dose ones are ok. ...Read more

I have mild to moderate asthma. Is dulera a safe medicine to take? I have read that it increases asthma related deaths? Is it well tested?

I have mild to moderate asthma. Is dulera a safe medicine to take? I have read that it increases asthma related deaths? Is it well tested?

No evidence: Although the initial study involving only a long acting bronchodilator (laba) often on patients who were not on inhaled steroid at the same time showed a slight increase in risk for asthma deaths. Subsequent studies failed to confirm this finding as long as the patients were on an inhaled steroid (ics). In fact, the combination of a laba and ICS (dulera) works better than doubling the ICS dose. ...Read more

Is a eucalyptus sauna safe for asthma. I haven't had an attack since i was six and can do high intensity exercises without my asthma being triggered.

Likely OK: If you don't have active asthma, you'll likely be fine. But be aware, you can never tell what may set off "asthmatic" lungs. It's possible that the "vaporized" eucalyptus oil may irritate your lungs and set off an asthma flare. If the heat of a sauna alone could do this. So just be aware and vigilant and you should be fine. Best of luck. ...Read more
