Pages: 1Showing 1 - 16 of 16 for symbicort vs singulair. (0.001 seconds)


... Symbicort and Singulair are not interchangeable and do not do the same thing, so you probably need to get back to your doctor (or find another doctor) to get on an asthma treatment plan. Symbicort is an inhaled corticosteroid that helps minimize the inflammation in your lungs - in order to be effective it must be used regularly. Singulair is a leukotriene inhibitor that...

... During a methacholine challenge, my lung function dropped about 50%. My pulmonologist told me that I should take a rescue inhaler as needed. He then said to either take Symbicort or Singulair (I have both at home). I don't know why he left it open to me...but he said take one or the other. If I had to choose, which one is better and more effective to take: Symbicort or... (12 replies)
... c I thought they were used for different purposes. This morning I couldn't breathe and I had used only Singulair last night. So I took Symbicort this morning and it helped. So I'm really confused at this doctor.... ... (12 replies)

... on both. We were in the hospital or dr. office every 2 to 3 weeks right before he started the symbicort. His oxygen level would drop into the 80s. He has been on singulair since 1 year. To me Symbicort is a God send. It has been a 9 months since he has been on symbicort and has only had to go to the dr. ... (12 replies)
... to see a pulminologist. The wonderful thing about pulminologist is that they are very up to date on new drugs and treatments for asthma and related things. Like symbicort is a new drug, expecially to children. The pulminologist was so on top of everything. i really like her. ... (12 replies)
... So sorry your son has asthma but your a smart mom and are always on top of things. Symbicort can work very well with many asthma patients but for me it wasnt in the cards. Went on advair and that helped a lot. ... (12 replies)

... My dgt. has asthma. Before they recommended she see a pediatric pulmonary specialist we were in the doctor's office every two or three weeks. Most of the time they would diagnose her with bronchitis and put her antibiotics and some kind of antihistamine. If they didn't put her on antibiotics she just got worse and it would progress to more congestion and wheezing. Then they... (12 replies)
... my lung function had dropped to 40%, and my dr put me on singulair. however, he also put me on advair. both these medicines work very well together. and my dr told me that advair was one of the best breathing treatments available. i suggest you not only find a new dr who will better work with you, but also research your options in trying different medications.

... The singulair can take a month or more to show improvement and it is not a steroid. It doesn't work for everyone. ... (12 replies)
... I have my regular Spring trip to the Allergist next week and I haven't been doing that well. Last time my Dr suggested either Symbicort or Dulera if my symptoms were still bothering me during allergy season. ... (14 replies)
... d switched to Allegra after it stopped working for me. I tried to go back to Zyrtec last year but it made me ridiculously drowsy, I think in combination with the Singulair it has the effect on me. Maybe it's time to try Claritin again. I've been on them all at some point! Thanks for your response. ... (14 replies)
... I think you got me mixed up with someone else because its me that has the asthma not my son. Funny though I have three children and thank god no asthma. For me I have it as long as I can remember. When I was a kid the medications were not there to help much and I remember going to the ER so many times. So glad your daughter is doing better on the medication. Always for me if I... (12 replies)

And Hope your son stays as healthy and happy as he is now. . He has to your a great mom. Sherry (12 replies)
... Well, they both are daily preventive meds, not what you take to stop an attack. That's why they take a while to start working. Do you have a rescue inhaler (albuterol)? If not, you need one in case you have an attack. Maybe oyu should find another doc. (12 replies)
