Serevent Asthma Beta Receptor Stimulator
Inhaled steroid: Serevent used without an inhaled steroid will make asthma worse over time. It needs to be used with an inhaled steroid. This combination is effective making both medications more effective. Most data shows that serevent does not make asthma worse when used with an inhaled steroid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
An organ, cell or molecule that accepts an outside signal and causes an internal change. Eyes receive light, touch receptors send messages to the brain when stimulated by pressure and estrogen receptors bind Estradiol causing responses of normal breast, ovary and uterus cells to rising and falling levels of the female steroid hormones. Most of the time "receptor" refers to one ...Read more
The combination help: Pulmicort is an inhaled steroid that reduces inflammation in the lung. Serevent is a long acting bronchodilator that when used with an inhaled steroid, can help the effectivess of the inhaled steroid. Serevent used without the inhaled steroid can over 1-2 weeks or more can make asthma worse. Serevent with asthma should only be used with an inhaled steroid. ...Read more
Can cold air cause breathlessness without asthma? It's my trigger but inhalers barely help! (Ventolin, plus Clenil and Serevent twice a day)
Consider other cause: Cold air exposure is a common trigger. Could be undiagnosed/improperly treated asthma or another condition that mimics asthma like vocal cord dysfunction. Would suggest seeing specialist for further workup and evaluation. An allergist would be someone good to talk to. ...Read more
Asthma ..I take ventolin and serevent and singular and flovent...without enough relief..always have shortness of breath ..what can help me breath :(?
I'm taking a new asthma medication described as specific to beta 2 receptors. What does this mean?
Beta-2 agonist: You are likely taking albuterol, or some form of it, which specifically targets the beta-2 receptors in the lungs for it's intended effects. These specific receptor medications are intended to treat disease of the lungs, without cross-reacting to beta-1 receptors in the heart. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Controversial: Salmeterol like albuterol carry black box warnings about increased risk of death in asthma. Most lung doctors feel that using these alone may convince patients that their controller medicines (inhaled steroids) aren't needed and this is the real cause of trouble so we don't use long acting bronchodilators outside of fixed combination therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If my chronic cough subsides completely with inhaled asthma med, does it rule out other causes? or does sinus cough and GERD react to salmeterol too?
What is the basic difference between ipratropium tiotropium salmeterol inhalers? which one is more appropriate for chronic bronchitis with asthmatic symptoms?
Not advised.: It is not a good choice for asthma. If there is no other option, you may ask your doctor to try a low-dose cardio-selective blocker. One study showed that although the lung function did decrease slightly when people with asthma are treated with a selective beta blocker, their bronchodilator response actually improved. I have not seen this study confirmed however. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Beta blockers block the beta 1 receptor on the heart. Some are not specific for that and also block the beta 2 receptor in the lungs which can worsen asthma. Choosing a selective beta 1 blocker (metoprolol and atenolol are probably the most commonly used) at the appropriate dosage eliminates this problem. ...Read more
Asthma is a disease of the lungs caused by chronic inflammation of the airways most often caused by allergies. This inflammation results in airway swelling and hyperactivity leading to difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, dry cough, etc. MIT is a diagnosis made by combining clinical ...Read more
