For Asthma, acute “Sleeplessness”

For Asthma, Maintenance “Right now, I am waiting for my doctor to renew my prescription so I can get my medication. The inhaler I am currently using shows it has 122 puffs left, and its empty. This isn’t the first time I’ve had one of these go dry before its used up. Now, without an inhaler, I have to hope that the doctor on Monday will send in the renewal. Fortunately, unless the pharmacy will provide a new inhaler to compensate for the defective one, I am out the money that was paid for it. Oh, it does work, when it has medication in it.”

For COPD, Maintenance “My main complaint is that the inhaler seems to be empty before the 200 puffs are used. It seems to help well for the first 150 to 175 puffs, then stops feeling effective. I carefully following how to use it & don’t know why I am not getting the right dosage throughout.”

For Asthma, acute “I have had asthma for 45 years. I started on this medication when I was very young. It’s always worked very well for me. I have had physicians try to change it to something else but I always end up requesting they change me back to Ventolin. It just works.”

For Asthma, acute “I have allergy induced asthma. Ventolin helps me breath better. Worked excellent at first then needed additional maintenance meds, Singulair and a steroid inhaler (Asmanex Twisthaler). I also take Allegra, Flonase, and Astelin to control my allergies and asthma.”
