When Do You Use A Rescue Inhaler Such As Ventolin?

When Do You Use A Rescue Inhaler Such As Ventolin?

I have a Ventolin inhaler but I am not sure when to use it. Sometimes I do go into a very dry heavy cough where I can't get air in or out. Is that when I would try to take a puff of this stuff? How do you take a inhaler when you are in a coughing fit? When I'm having one of these coughing spells my granddaughter says "Gramma don't cough around me, your going to make me sick". I tell her I am not passing an illness to her, I am just coughing because I can't get the air out.....don't know how… read more

Ventolin I Am On Sterevent Twice A Day And Still Use Ventolin. I Have Developed More Mucus In My Lings. Is This Normal?

I have used Ventolin for about 4 years now. I started on Serevent evohaler 2 months ago. This has reduced my use of Ventolin but I seem to be getting more mucus my lungs now. Could the Serevent be responsible? Also my dormant arthritis has suddenly become inflamed. Is this just coincidence? Thank you for your help

A MyCOPDTeam Member said:

Thank you. My body doesn't seem to like the Serevent much. My lungs feel sore after using it and I have a struggle breathing properly for about 3 hours after taking it. Then all returns to normal… read more
