As an a person who suffers from asthma, I beginning to think the government hates us. First they ban the effective inhalers because it hurts the freaking ozone or something. Never mind the fact that it works best in delivering our meds, we should suffer for some stupid greenies. Now they are wanting me to stop Advair who works very well in stopping me from needing my emergency inhaler. Now they want me to take a steriod with it or instead? Pox on them and their households for all enternity. I’m allergic to steroids, they make me incredibly cranky and uncomfortable. I saw the stats. They’re worried about 3 in 10,000, so the rest of 9,997 of us should suffer?
I can’t think of anything else civil to say other than I wonder which Obama buddy owns stock in the other drugs they’ll be pushing?
I take Singulair for my asthma (along with an antihistamine and Proventil as my rescue inhaler). I have used Singulair for about three years. It controls my symptoms fairly well (but cold winter air is a killer for me) and even my co-pay is pricey...When I go for my check ups, I have to be ‘counseled’ by my doctor on depression. Am I feeling sad, having dark thoughts, yada yada yada...and btw, how is the breathing thing going?
They are going to nanny us into carrying oxygen tanks!
I thought that particular fraud had been exposed and put down YEARS ago!
MAN I hate government liars!
A bunch of narrow minded pencil pushers. Your own doctor should be expected to know if you need to make any medication adjustments to save your life (even if it is only to keep a steroid handy at all times). My doctor knew about the scuttlebutt on Vioxx years before the gummit panicked and forced a total recall of the stuff (and it was a godsend to many).
