Asthma Overview

Asthma is a long-term inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs. It is characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and easily triggered bronchospasms. Symptoms include episodes of wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. These may occur a few times a day or a few times per week. Depending on the person, asthma symptoms may become worse at night or with exercise. Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and env...

As stated above i have a history of Asthma and was given tedral as a child but am unable to find this product anymore. Can anyone asist me with its location?? ## try phamanabolics . net about €1 per tab .. reliable , always arrives !! ## During junior and high school, I experienced fairly chronic asthma but I was able to participate in jv and varsity football and track, lettering in both.

Over the past five years or so, I have been prescribed various inhalers (Advair, Symbicort, Albuterol, etc) which have had little or no effect. In my experien...

What are the effects of tedral 25? ## Where can I find the medicine for my asthma? It has been 20 years since I last had them and the new stuff does not work. Any help would be great. ## I'm looking too Bruce, in the same boat. Seems like it was pulled to be replaced with an expensive non-OTC alternative. Keep me posted if u learn anything and I'll do the same. ## Bad experiences since Tedral was removed from my life. Took for twenty eight years. This is the only drug that was effective for my life. Why effective drugs are removed is beyond me, inhalers in general are a joke. Can anyone tell me where I can get an eqivalent ot Tedral itself. Took since I was 2 years old. IT WORKS. ## is it possiable to still buy tedral tablets ## Where can I find Tedral tablet? Please let me know...

I'm 70 years old with asthma. Where I'm staying there's pine trees starting to flower which makes it really hard to cough up phlegm from my chest at different times at night. Anyone have any clues on how to make coughing easier? It makes me feel exhausted and also stressed out about catching covid. I'm in Australia and my Dr is away on holiday. ## Just about every night I have to get out of bed and try to clear my throat. Does anyone know what I can do to make it easier to clear my throat? I've tried otc cough medicines and they don't seem to do anything. Any info would be really appreciated.

If you need me to locate a drug or it's ingredients, I will need more informaiton as well. Please post back so i can assist you with your question. ## It's about half the size of an asprin, it's white, plain on one side, an X or a cross on the other side. That's all there is to it. ## The only pill I could locate with just an X on it is Sennosides 17 mg, but it's brown and round. I will keep trying to see if I can find any more. ## those pills are probably no longer available. we used to buy them in the 70's for $20 per 100. 2 in the morning and you were ready for anything including los...

Is topraz 10mg a best sallution for astma and waht is the side effects ## Topraz (montelukast) is most commonly used to prevent wheezing, difficulty breathing, chest tightness, and coughing caused by asthma. It works by blocking the action of substances in the body that cause the symptoms of asthma. It honestly sounds like a good viable option for asthma, however, there's really no way of knowing how effective it will be until you actually try it. This is because these types of medication can and usually do effect each individual differently. Montelukast may cause the following side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away: headache dizziness heartburn stomach pain tiredness Some side effects can be serious. If you experience any of the followi...

Xolair works for Chronic Hives

I have had chronic hives for 10+ years. I've taken Prednisone, Benedryl, Zantac, Zyrtec & Several other medications to lesson the effects of this awful curse. Finally decided to try Xoliar 4 days ago. At first my hives were SOOOO much worse! Probably the worst they have been in a year. Then all of the sudden I woke up give free! No medications for 2 days. I know it's not a very long trial period but I want to shout from the rooftops!!! Someone who has this would know the overwhelming feeling to just not take these medications for 1 day & Xolair did it for me. You just have no idea how happy I am!! ## Hello, Madison! How are you? I am so glad that you found something that's helping and I hope it continues for you! I've not had chronic hives, but I have gotten them...

Azmacort Substitute

Azmacort has been taken off the market because of environmental concerns (they say). There really is NO substitute. All other steroids do not work. My wife could die because of it. No one seems to care. Do you? ## Jack, so sorry to hear about the impact that Abbott's decision is having on your wife. It is sad that companies can create products which help individuals (and make individuals rely on them) and then just make such a decision to withhold it on a whim. Surely something can be done about this. I'd start by contacting Abbott and/or consulting with an attorney to see what can be done. Has her doctor recommended any substitutes yet? I know you said that nothing else works for her, but I would be curious to know what the doctor is recommending be done. Good luck and keep me ...

Xolair/Omalizumab-Hair Loss

I have been taking this medication for 5 month and I have experience a lot of hair loss. Spoke with a friend who is taking the medication as well and has experienced tremendous hair loss. She has used Redkin Hair Products, with good success, she has managed to recoup much of her hair. Has anyone else experienced hair loss? ## I too have had hair loss. My hair is very thin now and I haven't touched a razor to my legs in months. ## yeah. I'm 16 and i have. ## Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of side effect information available on this drug, yet. You would probably be surprised to know how many drugs do cause hair loss, though. ## Hi. I am 20 years old and I have been shedding hair like crazy over the past two years..... I am not sure why this is happening. It's not geneti...

Tedral and aggression

I took Tedral for years as a youngster suffering badly with Asthma. Also I had a spinhaler which used to put holes in a tablet which you then inhaled. They both seemed to work just fine, but I did also have a course of steroid injections weekly to give me a boost (I think). But now I am 51 years old and suffer badly from aggression! Could there be any connection with my childhood medication intake? Has anyone else suffered from this? I am not a nasty person, but sometimes 'boom' I lose it. ## Usually, mood changes, including aggression would be associated with side effects from steroids, these symptoms should have been noticed back when you were taking them, not years later. Do you know what the name of the steroid was? Depending on how young you were, they may have caused some ...
