    I tried to go to the link at your 'About Me' page, Kittamaru, but the link seems to be broken?

    Thanks for the help last night, greatly appreciated...:-)

    I'm a mod on two other sites...I know what a thankless job it is...

    Keep up the good work...

    Ah, I just get inflammation all over the place-big tubes, little tubes, accompanied by excess phlegm production so that it's not just constricted, but all gummed up as well.

    I also have scarring from childhood pneumonias...you can actually see white stuff inside my lungs on x-ray.
    I don't know that my capacity is great for my size...although losing a bunch of weight helped A LOT.
    I think 150 is what I ought to weigh( at 5'9")and that's where I am. So, less tissue to keep oxygenated, less fat to produce inflammatory proteins.

    Oh, they cut my theophylline to what I'm actually taking. I am disappoint, I was getting half-price drugs...

    You will get resensitized to albuterol/combivent if you stay off it for a while. Do remember caffeine is a bronchiodilator:coffee-chugging can help if you have an attack...also chewing a couple of benadryl caps can head it off-if you're having an allergic response and will have an asthma attack soon if nothing stops it.
    Worst comes to worst, primatene...watch out for those pesky chest pains...:(

    Aerobic exercise definitely does improve things over time.
    BTW, what are those breathing exercises? Do you have a link?

    You might check into quercetin then if you're allergy-induced...it's an OTC supplement. Also nasal rinsing, plus zyrtec if not taking already-it's gone OTC.

    But quercetin seems to work the same way as Singulair-it stabilizes mast cells, prevents allergy and asthma attacks from occurring. It also lowers inflammation. You just have to take a lot-I felt no change below 3200mg 2x-day. I'm currently taking 17,600 milligrams...as much as the rheumatoid arthritis people take.
    The more I take, the more it helps-the only limiting factor being cost.

    I have to get my script drugs from the county poor people's system...before that I was going broke buying things, first domestically, then from an interesting website based in Vanuatu.
    I'm not good at thinking happy thoughts, and before my current cocktail, I was probably minus about a third lung capacity constantly.

    On it I can run, bike, lift weights.

    Hey...we should compare asthma cocktails...
    Currently using: combivent, symbicort, a little extralegal flovent for special occasions, quercetin megadose, zyrtec, claritin (only a preventive)singulair...and I should be on theophylline, but I can't find the last bottle.., so I'm chugging a lot of white tea.
