Hi Everyone.
Does anyone use any of the "old" Asthma drugs like Theophylline or Proventil repetabs. My Asthma component of my CF seems to be my biggest PIA! I just got out of the hospital after a one observation and a dose of steroids. This is happening so much that I am wondering if I need to try some of the old drugs. I am already using Pulmicort & Serevent & Spireva and Albuterol. Thinking that if I got the drugs through the blood stream instead of inhaled it might work better. My reg doc was away but going to ask when he comes back.
Any feedback appreciated.<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif" border="0">

Have you tried Singulair? My friend's daughter is on it for her asthma, and it seems to help. I also take it (but I don't have asthma), and it has helped considerably with my sinus infections (no longer chronic- yea!). It seemed (for me) to take a while to "kick in", but now I know if I miss one...

Oh, and Fruity said in a post in my thread about the nebs and vest order that she uses proventil instead of Xopenex- you may want to pm her, incase she doesn't see this <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif" border="0"> .

Yep, I take it 300mg once a day. Not sure if it helps or not. Been taking it for years.
