:-)    Hi everyone-!
 
As you know--taking the "methacholine challenge" Thurs & was WORRIED about them using Albuterol to reverse any coughing after inhaling the "meth" because of my heart rhythm issues (SVT etc)- smhair
I had e-mailed my Pulmonary Dr. last nite & she wrote back this AM & said.."Tell them NOT to use any beta 2 antogonists with me! nono
 
I JUST called up the testing center--& told them what my Dr. said-  They said they'd call me back as they usually use.."Albuterol"-!    The one tech was very nice- , she called back right away----------Said she spoke with my Dr. & they will use INSTEAD of Albuterol.......a med called ATROVENT----which does not have any "cardiac" side effects (it is a bronchodilator)--- wink
The tech was nice & complimented me----for being so..."aware" of my health issues!
 
This makes me feel much better & secure!    I never heard of "Atrovent"-!   Does anyone here use it? rolleyes   Do you find it helpful?  It seems to have less side effects & NO "cardiac" side effects!  Maybe it's..."milder"---so it's not used as much--!   Get back with any info on this!   Thanks again--Regards-Robert

Quick "PS"--ATROVENT is an "anticholinergic" med-not a "beta 2 agonist"--Just hoping to hear from any peeps-who use this med-Robert
