Q: Pulmicort, xopenix and atrovent in breathing treatment

Took a breathing treatment about noon today at allergist's office with pulmicort, xopenix and atrovent. I was going to take my first xolair shot and needed my lungs to be better. I took the shot, and was nervous. But later in the day about 6-7PM started getting anxious. By 9-10, I was really anxious. Had to take 1/2 ativan to bring blood pressure back down. I am very sensitive to stimulants like albuterol and wonder if this breathing treatment was too strong.

Mary, I'm sorry, but it's impossible for us to make a determination on something like that over the Internet. That's really a question better posed to your personal physician.


Hope you feel better,
