I have used Pro Air or Ventolin for quite some time as back up inhalers when I over do.
Could it be my breathing treatments?
Currently with the nebulizer 4 times a day. Ipratropium/Bromude and Albuterol. Followed by Symbacort 2 puffs BID.
ProAir RespiClick and Proventil. All 2 are rescue inhalers. I'm working with my pulmnary Dr. to see which rescue is best for me.
My doctor is thinking about changing me from Symbicort to Perforomist nebulizer so insurance will cover it. Anyone have and pros or cons about this change? I am unsure because I know nothing about the Perforomist. Please help me understand more about this change, if you will, and thank you. God bless.
Can you give me a name of an inhaler that you use and like, I have to get another one from my doctor. I tried spiriva respimat, but it was top strong and it made me cough, I also tried advair, but that made my throat sore and my voice hoarse, so can someone tell me about the inhaler that they use....Thanks
Hi, I have COPD with an FEV1 of about 50 percent. I take daily Breo, Spiriva Respirmat, and occasionally ProAir. When flying cross-country (from CA to NY and back) and especially on an international flight, I sometimes get short of breath, especially when leaving my seat. I find this situation scary. My pulmonologist says I don't need supplemental oxygen because my blood oxygen levels are normal. Anyone else have a similar problem? Any suggestions? Thanks!
For those who use rescue inhalers (i.e. Respimat, ProAir, Ventolin...how often do you use and how does it help you?
