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 use Pulmicort and I swear it has changed my life. I was diagnosed in my 50’s with asthma and relied on my PCP. He had me on a variety of drugs but nothing seemed to control it. My daughter who was working as a drug rep urged me to visit an allergist. He said that he found Pulmicort had the best results with the least side affects. I haven’t had a scary episode in over 3 years. My rescue inhaler hasn’t been used at all. Cold weather was my nemesis too and I can go out an shovel snow without any problems. Knock wood, I’m symptom free and even the allergist is amazed with my progress.
