Unhappy I need help ASAP!

My dad is the long time Asthma sufferer. Recently he moved from Boston to Seattle. In Boston he was quite ill, but in Seattle he is even worse. I was wonder does anyone know which place in US is good for people like my dad. I would think maybe Arizona?

I would do anything to make him feel better. Is there new medicine that anyone is taking that made a big difference in their lives?

Please let me know.
Thank you

You need a climate that is not cold and damp.
as for which that would be I don't know.
I am on Albuterol and Vanceril medication and it has worked great for me.
I did not realize just how much the asthma effected my life,my over all health was effected by it.
You have to take the meds real religeously though for them to work, there must be a constant regimen with them.

Sorry to hear your dad is not feeling well , i agree with faith he needs to get the right meds and dosage for him worked out, with the new meds their is usually no reason why asthmatics can't live where they want the way they want.
Get him to go to a pulmonary doc I also recommend gettting a Peak Flow Meter and charting his readings 3X a day for a week and taking the chart with him to the pulmonary doc ( NOT a GP or allergist imo )

Best of Luck
