Re: advair and singulair
karen...i had changed to the advair about 1 1/2yrs ago. it worked pretty well, but then i moved to cleaner apartment without mold issues, and that worked better. but this spring, as soon as weather had me opening my windows my symptoms got out of control again. i was switched to Symbicort, again and improvement. but i have to concede, where i live is not good ,100 feet from the highway cutting through town, and next door to a hotel where occassionally truck drivers leave trucks idling in winter, or leave the reefer on (to keep food items cold) on in summer. my job is driving a car in traffic all day....car exhaust, and it is on natural gas...further issues. my point is give the advair a good try, perhaps even a month unless you are still gasping for breath. but more importantly assess your living environment, avoid mold. most important room is the bedroom as you have your face in the linen 8 hrs at night. when i finally put the all enclosing zip up water resisitant dust mite proof cover on the bed, that had big impact (postitive) as well. i am kicking myself for not getting the air conditioner i was wanting in the spring. not because of the cooling, but to keep out the pollutants when it is so hot i must leave the windows open. next years project! if you smoke...quit! how long have you known you had a breathing problem, is this a new diagnosis?
