  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I am an obese male who lost 70 pounds over the last three years. My weight remained stable for nearly one year. My doctor prescribed and I have been compliant with taking the above mentioned medications for the last nine months and they were keeping my blood glucose in check and lowered my A1C by 60% over that time. Over the last three months, I have gained 8 lbs. without any change to my caloric intake or exercise regimen (I walk two miles a day.). Has my body adapted to taking these medications and now be causing weight gain?

  • James Rayan on Apr, 8, 2014:

    Xopenex is an inhalation solution which is a prescribed bronchodilator, advised by the health care adviser for patients who has breathing problem. This is caused due to reversible obstructive problem in airway. The reversible obstructive problem may be caused by many factors which include Asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Asthma is a respiratory disorder where patients suffer from coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. While, COPD is a long lasting and recurrent blockage of airway disorder where patients suffer from chronic cough (excessive production of sputum), chronic shortness of breath, and show symptoms of both chronic bronchitis and emphysema (damage of air sacs). If you are suffering from either asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) your doctor will may advice you to use Xopenex inhaler. When you order Xopenex online, it is advisable to read all the necessary information about the medicine. This medicine when taken acts on the body by widening the respiratory tracts so as to allow smooth airflow which consequently controls Asthma or COPD. This solution is introduced into a nebulizer, which turns the solution into mist. Patients can inhale the mist directly into their lungs to get relief from the disease. In fact you can buy Xopenex inhaler for the management of bronchospasm in patients aged six years and above. For elderly patients this drug can treat reversible obstructive airway disorder.
