I have been a severe asthmatic since birth, had very bad younger life great in my 20's and 30's and then last year I was hospitaleized 7 times in the ICU and non responsive to most of the ordinary meds they have always used. DAily I take 500 advair 2x, singular, duoneb as needed, oxygen as needed, flonase, albuteral as rescue.
I was intibated last year during my first visit and due to the massive amounts of prednisone over 7 hospitalizations and home wheening I have gained over 100 pounds, addding high blood pressure, diabeties and sleep apnea! In April my pulmonologist started me on the Zolair every other week. No hospitalizations since then but was curious if anyone else is on Zolair and having some of the same side affects that I am. I feel like I am on a roller coaster sometimes........any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks Samfuzl
