no reflux problems....and have started taking Advair 250 as of yesterday which has helped a bit for my chest painsand using my Xoepenex(Levabuterol) consistently twice a day in addition, is this too frequentl?...the Patanase in an antihistamine spray to replace the Nasacort which was a steroid spray that was actually irritating my throat. still trying to recruit help from an anxiety angle.....find out what the true cause is...could it be my asthma?? Also curious about a few things in realtion to my allergies, they seem to be most prevalent around fall thru winter? is this normal in Florida? are sever allergies common in Florida? will be in the Philly area during Halloween and am curious if i should expect my asthma to react in a negative way to the change in air humidity and temperature as i do so now to high levels of heat and humidity (eg. bronchial spasms/ wheezing and anxiety related to the asthma)
[QUOTE]using my Xopenex (Levabuterol) consistently twice a day in addition, is this too frequent?[/QUOTE]

According to the prescribing information you should be able to use it every 4-6 hours (so twice daily should be fine, but hopefully the Advair will allow you to use it less over time).

[QUOTE]they seem to be most prevalent around fall thru winter? is this normal in Florida? are severe allergies common in Florida?[/QUOTE]

It all depends on what you're allergic to but I checked and grass and weed pollen counts are very high for Florida this time of year (and allergies are common anyplace that has pollen counts that high). You might check around to see if you can get the pollen counts for your local area to see how your symptoms follow the counts.

[QUOTE]will be in the Philly area during Halloween and am curious if i should expect my asthma to react in a negative way to the change in air humidity and temperature[/QUOTE]

It's hard to say. If you asthma is mainly allergic the change in climate could actually help (by Halloween the pollen counts in Philly should be way down). On the other hand, changes in air temp and humidity aggravate some people's asthma.
