Currently dealing with a flare up of bronchial asthma and have been taking amoxicillin and prednisone and albuterol and budesinide in my nebulizer..seems flareups are becoming more frequent and occur in November and summer months. They usually last couple of months. Just takes time to improve. Does anyone else switch to the nebulizer during flareups and then back to Inhalier during healthy times?

Could it be my breathing treatments?
Currently with the nebulizer 4 times a day. Ipratropium/Bromude and Albuterol. Followed by Symbacort 2 puffs BID.

I have medicare and a supplement. I pay around 45 dollars a month for spireva and Symbicort. Less for albuterol. Canada has a US exchange set up for most of these inhalers. Might want to google Canada… read more
