Im Having bad allergic reactions to all the steriod inhalers, but is it the steriod or the propellant?
my symptoms are blurred vision, puffy face, heavy eyelids, feelings of sedation and sometimes weight loss.

any suggestions are welcome...

Nebulizer solutions are more pure/contain less additives. Maybe try nebulizer solutions in a nasal spray bottle to test for sensitivity first before investing in a nebulizer... A compounding pharmacy can sell you an empty nasal spray bottle for a few dollars.

Or try an inhaler that does not have a propellant - it would be breath-activated powder in a dispenser, instead of a pump inhalar. Discuss this with your Allergist...they should be aware of which brands are breath-activated instead of propellant based.
