Hank - if you are out there, please hang up.

Have any of you tried the new inhalers that are used in the morining and at night for asthma? My husband has very bad asthma where his attacks would leave him turning purple and me doing mouth to mouth waiting for the ambulance to get there. He has been on Flo-vent for 3 years now and has only had one mild attack. Look into this for your peace of mind.

Hi Joanie:
I have used FloVent, did not work well for me. I have been taking a new pill Singulair which is taken at night, it has greatly helped. I also use Atrovent, Combo-Vent, and several other samples from the Doc. It sounds weird but the inhalant that works best for me is the over the counter Primatene Mist. I also have a breathing machine at home for use with inhalent ampules. It was kind of expensive, but worthwhile after similar ambulance trips to the one you mentioned. There is nothing I have found so far to induce a panic attack quciker than going into respiratory arrest, and being conscious while they are working on you.

My wife has asthma also. Does Singulair have any side effects? She uses an inhaler (in a green container - don't know the brand) that causes her to have headaches. She tries to not use it for that reason. Also, I assume Singulair is a prescribed medication, correct?

the primatene doesn't sound weird to me at all. my husband swears by it, has a rx inhaler at the moment, because there is NO primatene to be found, another 2 weeks before the warehouse has any? do you know whats up with that? the rx isn't working like the primatene, and he is beginning to be a real pain in the butt. im ready to shoot him, and he is about ready to have me do it!

I have not had any side effects from the Singulair. Yes it is prescription only. I can't advise as to cost since my wife works at the Doc's, and we get medicine sample free. The only Green inhalaer I am familiar with is Serevent, which works like Flo-vent. One side efffect from any asthma attack is a terrible headache afterward. Mine tend to bring on near Migraines anymore.

Thanks for the info. I'll pass it along to her.

DW and Bluebird- This cryptic post involves some private e-mail discussed problems DW was having.

The important thing I have to say here is that-

1. People having a breathing problems attack need somebody that'll stay calm and gently talk 'em thru it.

2. DW has medical oxygen on hand. What was needed was somebody to talk her thru a panic attack and help keep her rational.

Yes, I made another convert to keeping a little inexpensive (compared to the medical system dispensed stuff) welding tank and regulator at hand for emergency & panic use. This comment involves some old technical arguments posts that should be in the archives.

DW & I had a long phone chat about asthmatic attacks, sick building syndrome, chemical sensitivities, and related things in both our lives.

Details of it I'll leave for DW to post about if she wishes. Anybody that wants to discuss t,his further please do so here, or clik on the private e-mail links.

Grinning because I think I helped a friend, IHank

Way to go IHank. As a chronic ashmatic I can attest you are correct. I also suffer from the asthmas induced panic attacks. Keep up the good work

I would like to thank you all for your kind caring words. I was so scared last night, I posted that dumb post about Hank hanging up, and I was so worried this morning that people would think I was a kook or something. I appreciate the save, Hank. Asthma is very scary. Hank calmed me right down, I went out in the cold night air and talked with him on the phone, and used my inhalers and oxygen and after about an hour, I was better. Thanks again to you all. I am very touched by your love and kindness.
