  • From this study (7 months ago):

  • 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.


  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • Believe my problem is with Formoterol. Symptoms (breathlessness and being winded with minimal exertion) first noted three years ago after taking Foradil aerolizer (formoterol) and asmanex twisthaler for one to two years. Health, stamina gradually dimished to shortness of breath with minimal exertion. One - two years ago prescription changed to symbicort. health improved dramatically for approximately two months. Began walking one to two miles a day. Now back to being winded with minimal exertion. Health seems better until I take my symbicort. Spiriva seems to counter act breathlessness at morning when I take with symbicort. At evening with no Spiriva, breathlessness prevails. using Spiriva twice daily works but doctor says no.


  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • Typically have bad breath with a sinus infection. No sinus infections in past year, worsened halitosis since adding inhalers Symbicort and Xopenex.
