ANyone heard of this

Hi everyone. My doctor put me on Pulimcort and when I went to go pick it up was surprised that I wasn't to put it in my nebulizer but was instructed to mix it with Splenda and drink it.. Has anyone heard of this? I just thought it was unusual and would have thought I would put it in my nebulizer like I do the Performist.

I have never heard of Pulmicort you actually ingest. What does your pulmicort package look like and what does it say?

Re: ANyone heard of this

the packaging looks like little pods with liquid inside and on the box it shows that it should be used in the nebulizer so I was very confused. I confirmed with the pharmacist who said he never heard of it either. I am going to the doc today to get my allergy shots so I will ask while I am at the office. It's really strange sure doesn't taste very good LOL. I mix it with 4 splenda then ingest it I cannot drink anything for 30 minutes after but have to rinse out just like with an inhaled steroid.

so who told you to drink it? The prescribing Dr. or the Pharmacist? I sure wouldnt have drank it!!!! If you are going to the Dr's today then i would take the whole package with you and talk to the Dr about it.

It turns out it was a mistake. I asked the doc today who was very confused when I told him the directions. Apparently the nurse chose the wrong instructions. There is an indication to use pulimcort as a suspension but not for asthma it's for a diesease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis. I am relieved it was resolved and I don;t have to drink it... YUCK!!! LOL
