I suffer form bronchial asthma, is it ok if my doctor gives me carboprost if I start post-partum bleeding?

I suffer form bronchial asthma, is it ok if my doctor gives me carboprost if I start post-partum bleeding?

Probably not: There are many ways to stop post partum bleeding, so avoiding anything that might cause brochospasm (the airway muscles contracting so you can't breath) is wise. That said, if it was that or a hysterectomy it is worth trying, as the bronchospasm is likely not to occur and is treatable. ...Read more

Feel naseaus and gasping for air ocassionally but cant get to er till morning what do i do. Severe 24 yr old asthmatic inhaler not working?

Asthma emergency : Clearly, medical attention is urgently needed and if you cannot drive yourself, you might need to go by ambulance. When inhalers do not work, there is danger of being unable to breathe. Controller inhalers and rescue inhalers are both important. If beyond them, you need oxygen and steroids, possibly antibiotic. TEA has theophylline which can help a little but is no substitute for real care. CALL. ...Read more

?Uncontrolled asthma: Make sure you take your controller asthma meds on time, use rescue meds as short acting beta agonists, e.g. Albuterol, if you have cough, shortness of breath or wheezing, if you don't improve, better see your doctor for follow up/re-evaluation, good luck ...Read more

OTC Asthma Rx: Inhalers with CFC that could damage the ozone have been taken off the market as of 2012.

Ultimately you need to be evaluated by an allergist/immunologist,if you haven't done so a;ready for possible allergy shots (specific immunotherapy), good luck ...Read more

Cant always be away from dogs w my slight allergy to them. Besides flovent for asthma what can I get to help allergy for when they are around me.thank?

Avoidance & OTC meds: As you know, minimizing exposure to allergens is usually the most effective approach--> try to be in separate room, maintain good ventilation, no dusting or brushing when you're around, etc. When you can't avoid the irritant, OTC allergy meds may be helpful (e.g., Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) Clariitin, Zyrtec). If not enough, your PCP may consider more aggressive allergy treatment, like Singulair. Good luck. ...Read more

Wheezing&cough when i lay down..Cant breathe feels like an asthma..Usually last for 3 hours after i stand up..What could this be?

Let's see: Do you meant that you start to wheeze and cough only when you lie down, then this lasts up to 3 hrs after standing up? If so, this may be from acid reflux which often co-exists with asthma and makes asthma symptoms worse. See your doctor about this. ...Read more

Got breathing treatment this morning still Feel naseaus and gasping for air ocassionally but cant get to er till morning. Severe 24 yr old asthmatic ?

Call 9-1-1: Were you given the breathing treatment in a clinical setting? Assuming you were given explicit instructions on how to treat ongoing symptoms and this plan has failed, then you need immediate evaluation and an upgrade in treatment. If you cannot make it to the ER due to transportation issues, then call ambulance. If due to scheduling conflict, then you need to understand this disease can be deadly. ...Read more

Dry cough and too much itching inside my chest when i breath.it makes me crazy and cant stop coughing.is this allergie or asthma or what?

Determine cause: Chronic dry cough is most commonly due to 3 conditions: asthma, post-nasal drip, or GERD (heartburn). You might have one or a combination of all three. Post-viral cough is also very common and can last for weeks. Further workup by allergist is helpful as they can perform a more detailed assessment including skin testing and pulmonary function testing. Treatment will depend on cause. ...Read more

Asthma flare: Can still happen without a reason, often times it is something in the environment, exposure to a virus, or just emotional excitement. Please adhere to treatment plan and controller medicines prescribed by your doctor, and see an allergist/immunologist for more comprehensive evaluation.

Prednisone for asthma,triggering mental side effects (suicidal, mood swings). Dr gave 5 days Worth. I cant continue. Is it ok to stop after one day?

Pred side effects: Hi. Prednisone can have psychological effects. How is your breathing? Have you ever been intubated for your asthma? Do you have your asthma meds (glucocorticoid & beta-2 agonist inhalers?). Talk to your doctor. It may be OK to either stop or lower the dose for the rest of the course of prednisone. Don't forget, the outcome is the same whether you kill yourself or die from asthma. Be safe. Good luc ...Read more
