Inhaler Information for Chronic Asthma

11/03/2006

Question:

I am suffering from asthma from infancy i.e from 6th month. Up to the age of 10 I used Asthalin and Deryphylin tabs in severe conditions. From then onwards I am using Ventrolin and Pulmocort inhalers. Now I am 18, getting recurrent attacks whenever I am exposed to dust and cold weather,starting with sneezing, cough and then asthma. Kindly advise me preventive inhalers and medicines and also any other inhalers/medicines for cure.

Answer:

Because of your persistent symptoms, you need a complete allergy evaluation at this time to determine whether allergy prevention or immunotherapy could help. At the same time you will be advised about adding or changing drugs. Ask your doctor to refer you to an allergist.
