Pages: 1Showing 1 - 13 of 13 for ventolin overdose. (0.000 seconds)

... Puffs of Ventolin pretty much every 3 or 4 hours. Is there a way of minimising the use of Ventolin as I'm almost immune to it. Is there anything bad about using too much of it? ... (8 replies)
... In Canada we call it an Asthma Action Plan and if you're asthma is out of controll (and babe it is if you're sucking back your vebtolin that much ) you should aske to be refered to an asthma specialist/plumologist , and they'll get you set up on one . It's really bad use your rescue inhaler so much that it doesn't work when your having an attack can be deadly( though... (8 replies)
... Never heard that mentioned in any of my son's doc visits. Not even at his yearly physical. They've always prescribed albuterol or xopenex for my son. Is ventolin different that albuterol? ... (8 replies)

... I read it wrong..I thought it said 250/50, I didn't know that there really was such thing as a 250/25. Sorry to cause such a ruckus, my own ignorance.. I thought Advair was only a diskus & only in 50 mcg of Serevent...sorry.. (40 replies)
... No i wasn't talking about hospital. If u want to talk about hospital, then u can take up to 4000 mcg (or 4 mg) of the stuff if u want. Im talking about myself. i was given that prescription by my doctors and I took it for 20 years. Afterwards they found out it was a stupid thing to do but I don't think it caused me any damage!

... Does he go to a pulmonologist? (8 replies)
... That is why my peds pulm switched her on avdair. He has just recently started to see her. 3 months ago. We are covering all the bases, bec the drs before didn't do anything.

Also the change... (8 replies)
... Hi Everyone I am from Canada and they do normally give out action plans to patients to follow when you have a cold, asthma attack etc. Where I live it is done usually through an asthma clinic where support for asthma patients is offered as well. Unfortunately, I am on alot of daily medication right now so it my asthma worsens I have to see my doctor as soon as possible. (8 replies)
... If her asthma is that out of control, she needs to be reevaluated. The daily meds are obviously not doing the trick and you may need to change or add something. My pul told me that if I had to use my my rescue inhaler more than 3 times a day(assuming I don't have a cold or the flu), to come see him. That's part of my written plan. I notice you are in Canada so perhaps... (8 replies)
... Do you have a preventative along with the ventilon? No ventilon is quite safe. My peds pulm says for the nebs vent you can take 20 and it wouldn't hurt. Same goes with the puffers (its endless) really. As long as you need it. You use it. (8 replies)
... That is waaaay too much! Do you not have a daily med? You need to go back to your pulmonologist and get re-assessed. ASAP! (8 replies)
