Some meds are helpful for asthma but there are others that can kill (and some of your patients may be taking!)

Interesting talk. Are there inhaled steroids pts can use that dont have LABA's that we can prescribe. Is there data to show that they are better?

Dave O. -

Unsure of the data on efficacy, but budesonide and fluticasone are two we use in my hospital

Mohammed A. -

recent study showed in pts on chronic steroid/laba inhalers that taking out the steroid part made no difference. I think it's not fair to say LABAs don't do anything. They have been shown to help. Understand that for COPD in general not many drugs will help very much. There's not enough emphasis on cardiopulmonary rehab with these pts.

If IV Magnessium works so well during exacerbations, should we be having our asthma patients on a daily oral Magnessium supplement?
