Is it okay for me to use my rescue inhaler more than twice a day ?  My doc seems ok with it but my heart is constantly racing with irregular beats.

Normal effects: If you are using a rescue inhaler twice a day, every day, you may need an additional medication. It is normal to have the reactions that you have to albuterol, but using it too much usually means that your asthma is more severe, and not well controlled. See your provider. ...Read more

Asthma plan: Small VSDs usually will close spontaneously by age 6 years. Allergies are triggers for asthma, and if there is a family history of asthma/allergies, this will contribute to the development of asthma.

Could using a Combivent (albuterol and ipratropium) inhaler cause heart palpitations?

Could using a Combivent (albuterol and ipratropium) inhaler cause heart palpitations?

Potentially yes: Particularly if you use the Combivent (albuterol and ipratropium) inhaler more than it is prescribed to be used, since it is a beta agonist and in high doses, can possibly cause arrhythmias that would be manifested as palpitations. ...Read more

Chest & jaw pain when running, cardiologist said heart is fine, gave me an inhaler, doesn't really help. 16, female, healthy. Always had this problem.

Probably chest wall: If the inhalers don't relieve or prevent the symptoms it's most likely chest wall or muscle pain. It can be aggravated by holding the muscles tense. Try to breathe with your abdominal muscles and control your breathing pattern when you exercise. ...Read more

Been suffering from left hand side chest pains and funny beats in chest for 6 months. I do have asthma but my inhaler doesn't  help. Heart racing also

Not asthma: The description is more consistent with cardiac excitability potentially exacerbated by using your asthma inhaler and less consistent with an asthma exacerbation. Chest pain is difficult to assess without a physical examination and more background information. Please let your physician know about these new symptoms. ...Read more

I'm 17, a girl and my resting heart rate is 107bpm. After running I can't breathe. I got a inhaler but it doesn't seem to help. Could I be tachycardic?

I'm 17, a girl and my resting heart rate is 107bpm. After running I can't breathe. I got a inhaler but it doesn't seem to help. Could I be tachycardic?

Yes: The strict definition of tachycardia is a heart rate greater than 100bpm. That being said it's important to know how you typically feel during exercise and at rest. Do you feel chest pains, palpitations? Are you generally anxious? I recommend you see your doctor and he/she will likely check an EKG to evaluate for any abnormalities (ie arrhythmias), also a test of your thyroid should be done. ...Read more

Starting Diflucan 200mg daily for 4 weeks. Also take Prozac. Worried about QT interaction. Getting different answers. I should be ok? Heart is healthy, and I have to take Diflucan for candida in esophagus from inhalers and anitbiotics. Just worried.

Monitor with EKGs: To help make a more educated decision, request an EKG from your physician to look at your baseline QT/QTc interval first. If it is normal, then, make an informed decision with your physician. If you decide to proceed with both medications, you could repeat the EKG after 4-7 days to make sure that the QT/QTc isn't becoming more prolonged. ...Read more

23 yo male. Upper chest discomfort/pain. Went to Emergency Dept & told me my heart rate/pressure/xray/blood were fine. Prescribed me inhaler but didnt help with pain. When rest it helps. Please help?

23 yo male. Upper chest discomfort/pain. Went to Emergency Dept & told me my heart rate/pressure/xray/blood were fine. Prescribed me inhaler but didnt help with pain. When rest it helps. Please help?

Cardiology 1st: I suggest you see your primary care physician for referral to a cardiologist who will do testing such as an ECHO cardiogram and exercise stress testing that is not done in the ER. If the inhaler does not help, don't use it. The ER mainly rules out arrhythmias and heart attacks, but not all cardiac problems. Asthma causes shortness of breath and wheezing. Is there a family history of heart disease? ...Read more
