Inhalers to Nebulizer Meds
I recently, with the approval of my Physician, switched from Inhalers to Medication via nebulizer. I had previously used Advair 250/50 bid and Xopenex Inhaler PRN. First for financial consideration I requested this change. I am now using Pulmicort 0.25 via nebulizer bid and noticed some improvement almost immediately even without the addition of the bronchodilator. Tracking the difference with my Peak Flow Meter I decided to add the Xopenex 0.63 in the evening prior to the Pulmicort. Since my numbers are very near normal for my age & height. I'm thinking this was an excellent move ... am I correct? Aside from the better numbers I rarely experience any shortness of breath. I'm very interested in your opinion.Thanks

The most important criteria for judging the appropriateness of therapy is its effectiveness at a dose that minimizes side effects.  It appears that you and your physician have achieved that goal with the combination of Pulmicort Respules
