My Husband has Asthma
, but he seems to do ok with Xopenex as a rescue inhaler. He is taking Singulair & Zyrtec daily, also, for maintenance. None of his medications for Asthma seem to bother his SVT.
In my case, I have Cough-Variant Asthma and PVC/PAC's (premature heartbeats). I was using MaxAir for rescue, but don't like to anymore because it makes me so jittery. I have no problem tolerating Pulmicort (as an inhaler or via nebulizer), and also do fine with Advair. Daily Claritin helps some, but not enough to avoid using the inhalers. My Allergist also mentioned that controlling nasal allergy symptoms with a nasal steroid can also help reduce Asthma symptoms, and so I use Pulmicort nebulizer solution sprayed up my nose daily. When I miss my nasal inhaler doses, my Asthma is definately aggravated. My PVC/PAC's aren't aggravated by any of the Asthma medications I've been using. I do find Proventil bothers my PVC/PAC's, hence my doctor recommended MaxAir to me instead.
