Help My Body Is Not Reacting To Asthmatic Drugs by nkemjacob2(m): 3:18am On May 05, 2020
I have Done several asthmatic test/ x-ray none is revealing that I have the diseases but I'm having the symptoms. The doctor I meant told me I. I'm asthmatic despite the result. So he recommended drugs to me (farnol & Ventolin inhaler.) at a point when I use it, it work for me then later it does not. I'm always having a serious attack at night.

This is what to do



Your body system has become used to the particular drug because you take it too often. Do this next time, take a mixture, I.e one tablet venturing, and one tablet Franol. Of this is how you've been taking it, later change to two ventolin


I hope you know that counting venturing is more effective than the satchet. So if you've been doing satchet, try counting. Or vice verse


Also, if your body has become too used to this and they are almost ineffective, do not use them for like two weeks interval and replace with a third option. Ask your pharmacist for Predlin or Perilion. Two tablets with aspirin will help



Also note, some inhalers are fake. Whenever you want to buy inhalers you may end up buying three before you can get genuine inhaler

My body stopped responding to ventolin, I went to the hospital and Seretide diskus was recommended. It is around 5k per piece and it is a preventive inhaler. I used it as a teenager but dumped it cause of the price, guess who is back on it and never leaving it till I'm symptoms free?

Who's recommending Aspirin for an asthmatic patient??
You haven't heard of Aspirin-induced Asthma(AIA) even in normal patients, let alone asthmatic patients??
If you're not a doctor, please don't recommend drugs for anyone, even if you're a drug dealer or a pharmacist.

"Counting ventolin is more effective than satchet ventolin"! How? What's the scientific/pharmacological basis for that?
It seems you're a patent medicine dealer("Chemist" owner) who deals more on those unbranded, unlabelled, Onitsha and Lagos-made tablets?
Abeg, allow this guy to go to a good hospital to see a respiratory physician.

I have similar symptoms related to asthma. I undertook xrays, ecg and results were normal. I was placed on asthma drugs even though my test result revealed that I don't have it. Later I met an ENT consultant and he review my history and concluded it was an allergic rhinitis not asthma and that was it. Please see a specialist so that you won't be taking wrong medicines because of wrong diagnosis. What are your symptoms?

Try and see a good respiratory specialist to make a proper diagnosis. If a diagnosis is made, the specialist will be able to place you on the best treatment.
