I was diagnosed with asthma when I was 69. I’m 75 now, and my asthma is SO much worse. My doctor had felt all along that I had allergic asthma. I’m taking montelucast in the evening. I use a nebulizer twice a day with albuterol and budesinide and use a fluticasone/salmeterol dry powder inhaler twice a day. These don’t seem to be helping. My doctor gave me a free sample month of dupixent that didn’t seem to help at all. I am giving myself two allergy immunizations every other day. I’m steadily getting worse. The trigger is activity. Going upstairs, or picking up any kind of weight just shuts me down. I don’t have any mucus or coughing. I only wheeze at the end of a long and forceful exhale. I’m hoping to try some Nucala or Fasenra, but it will have to be with a “ buy and bill” doctor. I’m on Medicare and I am unable to pay the $1500 copay my insurance would require. Mr doctor sent me for a complete round of blood tests last week, also a echocardiogram and CT scan. The heart looked normal but eosinafils elevated. I am self diagnosing eosinophil asthma for the time being. I won’t see doctor again for a month. I can take prednisone and it completely clears me up with no symptoms for a week or two. Does anyone know anything good for eosinophilic asthma besides the incredibly expensive biologics ?
