Asthma board

Quote from Whohov:
Anyone know a good antidepressant medication that mixes well with asthma meds (advair, flovent, combivent, etc..)? Having uncontrolled severe asthma can be quite depressing, you know?

I agree. I'm not on an antidepressant, but my shrink seems to think Prozac is compatible with all the asthma meds I take. As always, however, you need to run it by a medical professional.

My asthma is so bad - I have attacks throughout the day 4-6 days a week - that my pulmonologist and allergist want me on anti-anxiety medication. I currently take Xanax, however this cannot be taken every day.

I tried Paxil and it gave me horrible headaches. I need to try something else so I was wondering if anyone was on any of these medications (Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Effexor, etc.).

I am only depressed and anxious because I cannot breathe.
