New Question

HI, ive got a new question, Ive been taking my asthma medicine (foradil) for almost two weeks now, and ihave been feeling a lot better. I was diagnosed in asthma two weeks from today cause i had a lot of allergy and felt my throat tighten but i still think that this is related to the allergy and not asthma necesarily.
However, its been like 5 days since i have non or very little allergy BUT ive noticed that im exhaling less air than the one that i used to exhale when i first visited the doctor, could this be possible? That i feel better and have less allergy syntoms but still be short in exhaling air??? Is this a sign that i could be getting worse? Remeber i dont feel bad or have syntoms any more

Another question, im going to my doc. in 2 weeks but i wanted to know if someone knows if i could drink alcohol while im taking this medicines, i mean not getting drunk, just having one or two glasses of wine or a bear; LOL.
And if is it dangerous to take an aspiryn, eye-drops or medicine for gastritis.
THANX

Re: New Question

To answer your first question, are you using a peak flow meter to measure the amount of air you are exhaling? Or are you just going off how you feel? About the alcohol it's not a problem, I do know alcohol can be a trigger for some asthmatics, but I'm on a lot more asthma meds than you are and I drink and my doc knows I drink and there is no problem with that, about teh only asthma med you need to be careful with alcohol would be prednisone, some say not to drink while on it, but others say you can drink but only in moderation. About the asprin, it shouldn't be a problem unless you are allergic to asprin and then you will notice asthma symptoms within about a half hour of taking it.

Re: New Question

You really need to consult your doctor's office or your pharmacist about potential reactions between some meds and other meds or alcohol and any meds you are taking.

Also, allergic asthma is not uncommon in people who are allergic, so one can't really say that "it's not asthma - it's just allergies" once one has a diagnosis of either or both.

I agree with the previous poster regarding the peak flow meter.
