At times I do not have the money for my deductible portion during the first 3/4 of the year. I ask the pharmacist the price of each script. When they ask why I let them know that I do not have enough money for them all. Many times they will reduce the price or triple the amount with the same price which is a great reduction. Brain…
Most sites state that you need prescription, not so, you order it and it is on your way.
When the asthma hits you hard and you cannot inhale your emergency inhaler the nebulizer will continue to provide the medicine into your lungs, going deeper and deeper as you are able.
As you know you must inhale using diaphragm.
I am having…
Huffin & puffin, pretty much normal

I really like the the term asthma episode. I am in the midst of an asthma episode. It has been over a week and I’m coughing all the time, on a nebulizer treatment every four hours, and have tightness in my chest. Saw my amazing Allergist and now, on Prednisone and antibiotics to prevent an infection. I am exhausted. It’s been a rough week or so…
I am opting out of a fantastic bonfire tonight but enjoying it from my balcony instead. No smoke to worry about. I would rather sleep well tonight than cough and wheeze.
Yes thank you

That’s actually very funny, rjmoon. You sound like me. I’ve been there, done that. I found it really helped to control the dust in my house. I tend to use it primarily in the bedroom where I feel it’s needed most. I also have a dog, so it made a difference there as well. I hope you find you like for a good price.

I’ve been going back and forth about getting an air purifier. For awhile I was shopping around for one, then I decided it probably wasn’t necessary and not worth the money, and now I’m back to thinking it might be a good idea after all. If nothing else, I won’t need to dust and vacuum as often, and that alone would likely help. I get by wearing…
Hi krishwaecosse, and thank you for joining in the conversation here. It’s good to hear you were assertive by looking for another physician. A partnership between physician and patient will generally insure that one’s asthma is under maximum control.
Are you satisfied with your current medical practitioner?

The difference between an asthma attack and a flare up of asthma is one that I found myself and a physician disagreeing on once. Needless to say I haven’t seen him again.
I had a fairly rubbish asthma attack which stopped me in my tracks and saw me trying to selfmedicate before calling for additional help. Upon discussing this with the doctor…
