I've never taken Advair & probably won't as long I'm getting by with the Singulair & Albuterol.
Steroids are scary beyond belief to me, although I know quite necessary sometimes.
Actually, I'm pill-aphobic somewhat. With some other health conditions that I don't care to go
into, I have to be so careful with everything I put in my mouth!!
I react adversely to so many things it's just incredible.
For years I was unable to even take an antibiotic until just this last year. It seems that many CFS people, especially
those of the viral-subset of patients, develope terrible allergic reactions to all manner of things... pharmaceutics, other meds,
I happen to be one of them.
Plus, if the side-effects cause a problem (which they so often do...) I have to shift gears.
I have had so many Drs. through the years want me to take this or that, and or my dear hubby trying to get me to take
various herbs/etc **...through the years,
but have had to do so with a certain amount of fear & trepidation, or ... a very cautious
approach, at best.
*(My hubby has studied herbs/vits/and alternative treatments all of our married life & pretty much managed to keep us away from conventional medicine
outside of the normal & routine stuff, or some medical emergency, for the most part,)
If I find things that work and do not give me fits, I generally stay on them.
Anyway... probably far more than you wanted to know here...
Courage is not having the strength to go on ... it is going on, when you no longer have the strength. - source unknown -HeartSpacesVIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGE
