I was born with asthma and now COPD/Emphysema. I was doing fine with my Combivent Inhaler. Then they stopped making it. They replaced it with Combivent Respimat spray mist. But, my insurance won't pay for it. I have a backup = Proair inhaler. But it doesn't help much. My doctor says her hands are tied. The insurance company won't pay for the new inhaler because it's not on their list of medicines they will pay for. So, I am using the Proair inhaler and struggling to breathe. Anyone have any advice for me? Thank you.View Thread
Thanks for the advice. My insurance won't pay for Ventolin. But I think it's the best inhaler out there now. I'm on Medi-Cal. Only Medicare will pay for Ventolin.
I was in the hospital a month ago for breathing problems. The doctor gave me 60 vials of DuoNeb. I read your note before I went into the hospital; so I asked him for it and he said yes. Thank you so much, it works pretty good.View Thread
I've used Advair for many years. I never got any side effects. And it never made me lose my appetite. I wish it did. But it really helps with the coughs. I hardly cough at all. Advair is great for me.View Thread
I was born with asthma and now have emphysema/COPD. I rely heavily on inhalers. When I was a child my mother used to say regarding inhalers: You need to use the inhaler to breathe for the asthma attack, but after you use the inhaler so long it can hurt your heart. I have a heart murmur now.View Thread
