Stay away from Advair (it is dangerous, you can check this out on the net) Asmanex is better. Anyway, I was a former smoker and quit about 4 years ago and developed asthma about 1 year ago. Let me tell you, it has been a nightmare. It is wonderful that you stopped smoking now. Now your lungs will heal. You may wan't an anti-anxiety medication that DOES NOT interfear with the respitory system. I panic when I can't breathe, everyone does. Sometimes, real hot coffee will open up my bronchioles but I always use my inhailer. Again, I had a bad reaction on Advair, it has been known to make broncial spasms much more severe!!!! Stay away from it.
Sorry your suffering so much, never hesitate to call 911, or go to the ER, they are here to serve you. etc. Take care -
