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.
Also JulieAnn reviewed the SpiroTiger. http://www.slowtwitch.com/...ewproduct/spiro.html
Triathlete magazine had a favorable review of PowerLung a couple of months ago.
I use flonase, flovent and alupent. Been very effective for 10 years. But do not know of long term side effects.
flonase is cortocosteriod nasal spray. flovent is cortocosteroid oral inhaler. I get some nasal irritation and bleeding in one nostril from the flonase, but nothing major. I have No known side effects from flovent
Was interested in SpiroTiger based on JulieAnne's review but it is a bit expensive.
Also interested in hearing from people who use these products.
