In this article we talk about Asthma Help: Coughing So Hard, Can’t Take Inhalers.

Question:

I have asthma and find it especially difficult first thing in the morning if it is winter. I have a tendency to cough a great deal and it is quite uncontrollably — to the extent where I can’t take my reliever inhaler to fix the issue. I get into a troubling cycle of coughing / not being able to inhale the medicine, and it really upsets me. How do I combat this?

Response:

First and foremost, consider drinking a warm fluid after you can on chilly winter mornings. Tea or coffee are perfect; should you need to make yourself, pay your mouth with a cloth at the same time you do this and attempt to take shallow breaths. Ready the beverage so it’s possible to drink it fast not boiling, but certainly hot.

Second, the persistent cycle of coughing which is so poor you can’t find a breath to take your inhalers isn’t rare although it’s unpleasant. The best way to fight this is via a system that works between your inhaler and your mouth. These devices have different titles, such as atmosphere chambers, inhaler chambers and inhaler assistants. The basic assumption is that you fit your inhaler into a round room and expel the medicine through a single”puff” into the room. Then you inhale the atmosphere from the room.

The reason that this works is that it takes away the immediacy of having to inhale then and there in the event that you place the inhaler directly in your mouth. Having the ability to take rapid bursts of this medicine from the room should relieve the issue. Fantastic luck!
