Advair And Nebulizer Used Togeather Why?

WHY DOE A PERSON HAVE TO USE A NEBULIZER BESIDE ADVAIR?

Answer

The above response is right on. The only thing I'd add to this is that while medicines like Advair and Symbicort are meant to control asthma, all asthmatics should still have on hand rescue medicine on hand at all times. Some asthmatics have nebulizers, although most simply have a rescue inhaler like Albuterol.

Ideally, if controller medicines like Advair are doing the job of controlling your ashtma, you shouldn't need to to use your nebulizer or rescue inhaler very often. Again, however, it still may be a good idea to have this medicine on hand in case you need it.

As mentioned above, your asthma doctor may have other ideas, which is why it's always a good idea to pose such questions to your doctor.
