Medications

What medications are you guys on?

I'm on:
Advair 500 twice a day
Qvar 4 puffs twice daily
Nexium twice a day
Nasonex twice a day
Allegra-D twice a day
Pulmozyme twice a day
Singulair once a day
prednisone 20mg in the morning, 20 at night
Xopenex twice a day and as needed
Atrovent/Duoneb as needed
Xolair once a month
Tobi for 28 days with infections
Magnesium and multivitamin once a day

I think that's quite enough.

Re: Medications

Wow, I feel really healthy compared to all of you! I'm on:

Prevacid 30mg once a day
Allegra 180mg once a day
Pseudophedrine/Gausifen 795mg/85mg (decongestant) twice a day
Singulair once a day at night
Advair 250/50 as needed
Albuterol inhaler as needed
Zithromax steroid shots every four months
A multivitamin (Centrum)
A calcium pill (the Zithromax can cause bone loss)

And that's it! Once I got the decongestant, I felt SO much better. It really helped. I like the Advair a lot too. On days that I am just having trouble, it really helps out.

Re: Medications

Right now I'm taking:

Advair 250/50 2 times a day

Zyrtec - when needed

Hydroxzine (i think lol) - for excema, so I don't scratch the hell outta myself when I sleep, its basically just an anti histamine

Trimamcinolone - also for excema, its a cream

my asthma is so much better than it used to be,now i'm just worried about excema.. which goes hand in hand with allergies and asthma. bleh i get stuck with all three.

Jasmyn, have you ever tried Elidel or Protopic for eczema? I use Elidel on occasion (I only have moderate eczema), but I find that it works very well. They're non-steroidal too, so that's a plus.

Re: Medications

Trimamcinolone - isn't that an anti-fungal?? I believe it's used to treat ringworm fungal infections I could be wrong though.
I found the key to keeping eczema under control-t ake anthistamine daily. Also like Cetaphil lotion a lot it helps & use either Cutivate or Psorcon on rashes depning on how bad it is.
Controlling eczema is alla bout knowing your triggers just like asthma- have you been tested for allergies? It all makes sense once you do =).
