HOLY COW, PDX!!!!!! Do you own a pharmacy???
I've had EIA for nearly 30 years now. I've trained and raced for the last 5 using only Proventil (or Albuterol) and done fine. Last fall, something more sinister set in, and depending on who you talk to it's restricted, obstructed or reactive air disease. I see a pulmonologist tomorrow.
I'm now taking Flovent, which I believe is similar to Flonase. Are there any side effects that you're experiencing?
Cgottesman, any tests of my lung capacity have always been "normal," so I'm not sure whether the PowerLung is a help here. I think that once those membranes swell, we're screwed.
