Primatine Mist, asthma remidies?
hey any asthma sufferers out there, i just found this link

[link to www.change.org (secure)]


its a petition to get primatine mist back on the shelves.

primatine mist was a cheap over the counter inhaler which cost about 12 bucks per inhaler and worked like a charm to relief intermittent asthma attacks. best of all, you could get it at 10 pm on a sunday from your local 24 hour walmart when you had a random asthma attack, without having to go to the doctor to get your prescription renewed


asthma sufferers like myself are forced to either take advair daily, which is addictive and has a list a mile long of side effects, is a crushed up pill you have to inhale... it's just plain nasty. OR, an albuterol inhaler, which works about 1/3 as well as primatine mist and, of course, costs about 3 times as much. also, if you happen to get an asthma attack at 10 pm on a fuckin sunday with an empty inhaler and no refills left on your prescription, you're basically fucked till you can get to a doctor, shell out a payment for a visit, an then get raped for 50 bucks for another shitty inhaler.

supposedly it was taken off the market because it contained CFCs, but i call bullshit, i think more likely big pharma didn't like us plebs getting cheap relief and cutting them out of the cycle.


i know change dot org surveys have accomplished ABSOLUTELY NOTHING since they've started but it couldn't hurt right?

anyways, if anybody out there has any awesome home remedies that work please share em here

Actually, albuteral is better than the primatine. Just get ventolin rather than ProAir (worst), Proventil (irritant in CFC replacement). It's the only HFA inhaler that doesn't contain a chemical known to aggravate asthma. I actually use ventolin, a nebulizer, and a steroid inhaler. (I cannot stand Advair)

are you knocking or reccomending proventil? i use proventil.. takes me 4-5 puffs to get any relief, and i've been going through an inhaler about once/month and a half. a PM inhaler would last me 3-4 months. one puff would set me straight, and often i'd expectorate stringy sorta junk the next morning. i only seem to get asthma attacks semi-seasonally.. the proventil seems to just smooth me out for a couple hours, where as i'd get an attack once a week or two (last fall/winter)

25 years ago the doc recommended super strong coffee and drink it fast. She later said to keep the caffeine levels steady by drinking wker coffee or tea throughout the day.

My mother has copd and swears by mucinex, says she uses her inhaler a lot less so it lasts longer.

thanks for the tip. tried the caffine route w/out much luck

word of warning, i picked up "asthmacare spray" by "safecare+", a homeopathic oral spray that "may relieve asthma symptoms in 30 seconds" i had a feeling i was about to get ripped off for 20 bucks.. would have gotten primatine tablets, but the walgreens pharmacy was closed, (they keep them behind the counter, apparantly fucking methheads ruin everything)

anyways, the "asthmacare" is absolute bullshit and does nothing at all. i knew better, but they had me over a fuckin barrel.

I have a friend that gets ventolin inhalers from India, exact same as in the states, ten dollars each DELIVERED for the LARGE size inhaler.

pure water that they claim has a memory of some alleged medicine in it.
Wiki homeopathic and amaze yourself.

Re: Primatine Mist, asthma remidies?
Actually, Primatine would make me have an Asthma attack, so I swore off that early on. Inhaled powders make me choke, but Albuterol does the trick for me. Mucinex is superb for preventative when the fluids build up.

Expensive? Oh yeah, but it is better than charging women for pads or tampons; something every woman needs.

Home remedies that have worked gangbusters for me is Rosemary Tea, and oddly enough... Dr. Pepper.

Re: Primatine Mist, asthma remidies?
the "CFC" propellant in use for so long in most inhalers was actually about as therapeutic in the short term (first 30 seconds) as the medicine-

Nitrous Oxide.

Asthma is has a stress component and just calming things down has a huge impact. The real issue here is that they screwed that up- because ASTHMATICS are the main source of N2O and are going to cause global warming to go to extremes- single handedly. right?

I've had several prescription inhalers that made asthma attacks worse, but have found that the albuterols in *general* work pretty well (some better than others) the combos send me to the doctor. Primatene works okay, for a short period but really hammers on your heart.

Hot coffee, black, with sugar, works as well as anything Breathe easy tea, classic old school, works decently- but the meth heads make that hard to find.

Biggest preventatives for long term asthma? don't live near a busy road and CLEAN the house. A lot. (get help at first or you end up pretty sick)

I'll give the new stuff a try for backup purposes, but I'm a bit leery of how effective it will end up being.

the herb eyebright and the heb mullien are both good. Tea of eyebright and a joint of mullien twice a day works pretty good.

"Dr, it hurts when i do this..."
"Well, stop doin it, knyk knyk"



after a solid 12 hour of this shit, i just stopped breathing, and my asthma went away.

by "stopped breathing" i do not mean i passed out or died or fuckin had a stroke or something, i just fuckin took a minute to do laundry and tidy up my fuckin room and stopped taking focused breaths, being panicky about how bad this asthma sucks, etc, etc. stopped researching about how absolutely absurd homeopathy is (and i believe in some pretty fuckin "absurd" shit, moon hatchings, chemtrails, fluoride, etc),
anyways. i stopped doing it and it went away. feels like an idiot epiphany really. i'm still gonna get a new prescription for a new inhaler, but still.

peace yall thanks for the help and info on this, def learned a lot in the last day

The CFC's in the early stuff was breaking up the ozone that was produced by the immune system. Yep, this is why they took it off the shelves. They don't want the public realizing the one thing that could alleviate their symptoms is an element on the periodic table.
