Hi! :)
Im on singular tabs and two inhalers ..Ventolin and Pulmicort. The latter causes me to have oral thrush regulary, I have followed the advice I got from the Pharmasist and the Doctor about swilling my mouth out after use etc..
But I still get the problem.It causes my asthma to get worse, when I have an attack of Oral Thrush. (I think The thrush lands on my tubes also and makes me cough) once I take med to get rid of the Thrush My mouth gets better and my cough goes!
Anyone else have this problem? :rolleyes:
Hugs

Yep, I have major probs with it. A few months ago I had a problem...I had tonsilist...which would bring up my asthma. So with the extra puffs and the antibiotics for tonsils, I'd get rid of tonsilists, but be left with thrust, which would bring back the tonsilist again. Ended up not being able to stomache food cause of it and got put on 'Nilstat'

Still currently having bad asthma (Had my tonsils taken out a few months back) and my doc has doubled my preventer dose (I'm on seretide) and now put me on steriod pills. Still got the thrust prob, but I just take Nilstat when it comes back.

And btw I do rinse...I've tryed different liquids too...water, listerine , coke etc. I found coke works the best for rinsing.
Thank you! My 2 year old daughter just had a serious bout of thrush ( bad on her inner lips too) and then a yeast infection rash both of which were not too bad by the time I brought her to see the doctor... He didn't say anything ...SHE IS ON SINGULAIR every day... I did suspect the asthma meds. Thank you! Good luck!
I was just diagnosed with asthma for the first time ever. I'm 31 y/o female. I just started the inhalers about a week ago. 1st albuterol but made me WAY too jumpy, so then xoponex -(levalbuterol) in nebulizer which is very similar to albuterol but it's like 70% less jitters after you take it and it lasts 4 to 6 hours. I had a steriod shot and they gave me QVAR steriod inhaler. WELL, after my first 2 days of using the steriod inhaler along with my levalbuterol/neb treatment, I started feeling raw, hoarse, very dry in the opening of my airway and down in my throat and airways. It made me feel like I couldn't get a good breath, couldn't relax my throat and breathing. I went to urgent care yesterday and they said they think I'm getting oral thrush from the steriod inhaler. JUST IN 2 DAYS of using that thing! unreal... So, I they gave me 3 pills called fluconazole 150mg tablets to take 1x daily. Just after my 1st pill I felt a LOT better the next morning. Right now I don't feel raw, horse, etc... I also took a bunch of mucinex like he said to too and I do feel a little congested but that's probably from all the expectorant meds to get this thickness out of me. I'm about to go on a lfight - wish me luck people!!! This will be my 1st trip with asthma and I'm a little scared! Where would I plug in my nebulizer if on a lfight and would they freak out on me thinking I'm gonna blow up the plane or something if I break my neb treatment??? lol.... sheesh.. I never knew how much trouble, triggers and things asthma sufferers have to avoid or go through.. I'm still not 100% I'm doing the right thing for myself as far as treatment, meds, actions, living, etc...
oh joy.. I got oral thrush yet once again from my qvar inhaler (i think that's what it's from anyway)... Had to take another 3 days of those anti-yest pills but this time the Dr gave me a mouth wash that's supposed to help get rid of yeast. It taste horrid but seems be keeping the white stuff from coming up in the back of my thraot, thank goodness!!!
I have to say, that when I feel the thrush coming on in the back on my throat, it feels weird, rawish, full, glue filled, thick as if I can't breathe from mucus plugs or something and it freaks me out a little cause I keep thinking it's asthma coming on... within 2 days of the anti-yeast pills though I cn breathe fairly normal again w/o that weird feeling in my throat.
I've only been on qvar for around 3 weeks or so and already have had 2 yeast infections in my throat even though I swish and gargled with water, then water w/50/50 peroxide, etc...
Guess I'm just a little more prone to it or something......
I've been feeling pretty good though the last couple of days asthma wise so I hope I can come off the steriod soon in another 2 weeks or so...
[QUOTE=Stoney109]i think i have thrush going on. way way under my tongue on the left its sore. also have kinda a dry throat. i started flovent 4 days ago. how do you get rid of thrush? ive been taking acidophilus and rinsing with hydrogen peroxide[/QUOTE]
I tried peroxide for days and days with thrush... useless... Thrush is a pain to get rid so, I'd go to a doc and ask for "diflucan" pills. You get 3 of them and will get rid of it very quickly! I feel better within 24 hours.
I know what you mean about dry throat.. It felt a little thick like I have wet toilet paper stuck in my throat but also felt really dry/horse at the same time.
made me feel like i couldn't breathe well also which for me was the worst part of it.
I got thrush for 1st time 3 days after starting my steroid inhaler (QVAR) and thought i was having another asthma attack because of the horseness and thickness.. Make me feel like my throat was closing up. Well, it was thrush that time. I got rid of it with diflucan that time. The doc told me to use peroxide to gargle with after I did my inhalers and that would help prevent getting thrush.. WRONG. I got it yet again and did diflucan again and got rid of it right away.

This time though the doc wrote me a prescription for a huge bottle of "nistatin" swish & swallow. Nystatin is just like diflucan but it's like mouth wash that you swish around and then swallow. It prevents/cures yeast/thrush in the mouth.
At 1st I used it every time i did my steroid inhaler and then just as needed. I've only felt thrush coming on once since then and as soon as I even thought I was getting it I started the swish and swallow Nystatin stuff for a few days and it went away before it got started. For me, I first just feel a little raw and horse then within 3 to 4 days I have yeast like crazy in the throat and feel terrrrrrrrible.

I'd just tell the Dr when you go in for the Diflucan pills to also give you a good size bottle of "nystatin swish and swallow" so you don't have to keep coming back for thrush. It can be a pain going to the Dr so often.

Take care,

T.

well i stopped the flovent, i dont have asthma, its from the reflux..idk if my prob is thrush or not..its worse now than its been and it hurts real bad and is a sharp numbing pain now on the left side...the sores are all along the base of my gumline. they start way way down (or up) like where the wisdom teeth roots would be, in those 4 corners. i usually get them sometimes in one corner, and they go away in 4-6 days. now, they are in the upper left, and both bottom corners! it started upper left, and lower left, now lower right. idk if it's thrush or not, but i got nystatin swish and swallow..i took one dose earlier..my tongue is also coated white way more than normal. they sores way down in the base of the gumline are dark pink with random white lines going along the base, to the front 2 teeth almost. is this thrush? and if it is, it seems worse, esp my tongue. does it get worse at first? im worried, i just started getting the sharp numbing tingling kinda pain on the left side a little while ago. im about to go to the ER. what do ya think, thrush or something else? again i stopped the inhaler a while ago..just seeing if this could be thrush, because i have a history of a LOT of antibiotics. lmk, thanks!

I am just getting over pneumonia,and also developed a viral infection,sore throat and the insides of my mouth and tongue....i have been using flovent and albuteral....i love my diet pepsi,but my mouth hurts to much...is this thrush?
i may not know alot about asthma yet, but i do know ive had oral thrush ofr oevr a year :3

i have it chroncially, but only becuase i dont like the treatment so i just let it come back each time.

apple cidar cvinigar, swich it in your mouth and gargle iwth it a little, you can water it down if you like, you shoudl do it once every one - three days, and rember to brush your teeth a few mintes afterwards so it doenst hurt your teeth.

dont eat anything sugary becuase thrush looove sugar, someone mentioned swishing coke in their mouth, thats liek teh worst think you can do for it :eek: dont do that~

ive tried a few medicines, the dont work as well as apple cidar vinigar and theyre alot more expsenive. also as soon as i was finished iwth each med i tried, it just came back anyway.

the first time you use vinigar, it will feel weird and look kind of yuck becuase its litterally disolving the thrush, but check back the next day and youll see it looking so much nicer :3
