Anyone here have asthma? i just went to the doctor today because i had a hard time getting air in (especially with doing cardio).. she prescribed albuterol.. i've had the problem (breathing) for a while now, i thought it was due to allegies, but ive been prescribed about every damn nasal spray and pill and nothing really worked as it should have(if it were allergies)..
does this medicine help? pikchur

It works. I have asthma, and use it or similar inhalers when needed. My asthma really bothers me less as I get older. I notice that once I am warmed up, I realy dont have any problems what so ever. The first few sets can be tough sometimes though, especially on squat or deadlift days. Tren does'nt seem to help much either.lol
I am slightly asthmatic, moreso in childhood and have an albuterol inhaler. The inhaler will do the trick but it may give you a buzz similiar to caffeine. Imho albuterol is superior to other inhalers like proventalin (sp?) and various tablets. If you are having an asthma attack triggered by allergies, the albuterol will still be effective from what I understand. Some people may argue that albuterol in tablet form has a fat burning effect... I have not experimented with this but from what others say it can't hold a candle to clen in that aspect.
I would encourage anyone who is asthmatic to do simple breathing exercises. Having done them for a few years, generally while meditating, I have noticed a great increase in my lung capacity. My doctor has commented on this, although I'm not sure as to specific numbers in terms of the increase. The great thing about these exercises is if you do them in an very controlled manner, they can be done anywhere. I do them in class sometimes, breathing slowly and deeply taking maybe two breathes a minute and noone can tell. I should add the first few times I took albuterol inhaler too close to bedtime I had trouble falling asleep, as I said I found it similiar to caffeine but also felt a little light in the head sometimes.
yeah, i notice that cardio makes my condition worse. and squats sometimes too, but not too bad... i ran this morning and really had a tough time with the cold air.. i think i might just do cardio indoors at the gym.. what kind of breathing exerices do you do?
I use to have bronchial asthma baaaad when I was a kid, and the older I got along with the more cardio I did, it slowly went away and now I haven't used my inhaler in two years. Lemme tell you though, albuterol will be your best friend in a matter of seconds(good shit for quick relief)

Lemme tell you though, albuterol will be your best friend in a matter of seconds(good shit for quick relief) sweet.. sometimes im in misery and sometimes im fine.. like today i had a oral presentation today and i tried to do everything like drink lots of water, drink green tea and honey so that I'd be alright.. but NOPE! it fuckin sucked, i could barely get any air into my damned lungs all while talking at the same time.. lol i remember to this day, the first time i had my first symptom years ago, i was done doing squats, and gulped for air as normal and the air wouldnt come, i was like wtf???!!!
what are these excersises hehehe????
well.. this is the one i do all the time: control your breathing so that you inhale for a count of say 10, hold it for 15 seconds, and exhale(control the exhale so that it takes a count of say 20 to completely exhale), then repeat. You have to play around with the numbers to see what you should start at, you don't want to pass out. Try to do them everyday, and you will notice it becomes much easier, so make the numbers higher. Do all of this breathing through the nostrils. If you folks are interested in more, do a yahoo search for yogic breathing or pranayama.
Try and get a scrip for sarevent as well and use that morning & nite. The albuterol if used very often will give you the shakes bad. The serevent is kinda like long acting albuterol, but wont work on an active asthma attack... albuterol does
My stepson has it very bad.......AVOID exercising in cold air..........do as suggested the breathing exercises......they are very important........and check yourself to see if you are allergic to milk (assuming you are drinking it).......it can most certainly generate allergic attacks in individuals.........clen can also work to a certain extent.........but not consistently........
ok i used the albuterol, but i dont think i really inhaled it correctly the first 2 inhales. but i think i got it the 3rd time, lol.. is it imperitive to inhale with proper technique?
