I use albuterol, serevent and Qvar. I was taking singulair but didn't notice a difference with it. I have adult onset asthma, which they are saying I have COPD. I am 49 and acquired asthma at age 30. I know my cousin who is a year older then me and her son who is 17 both suffer with asthma too. After years of suffering with only the albuterol, they have now given her flovent to use along with the rescue inhaler. So it may take a longer acting inhaler to help.
My son has used Flovent, Singulair, Loratidine (Clariten) and Albuterol. The combo of the first three has kept him from needing the albuterol. He is doing great. I have a question- does anyone know the difference between Albuterol USP and Albuterol Sulfate HFA? The doc recently wrote the HFA script and I didn't pay attention to it until I filled it and noticed the box was different. I can contact the doc tomorrow, but was hoping to have an answer tonight. Can anyone help?
I couldn't find a difference between the two other then one may be generic? Here are the websites so you can see both and compare the two.
