Please tell me which is better. aerocort or DUOLIN or SEROFLO capsules for asthma. Different doctors prescribed among...
Aerocort is short acting reliever plus a steroid, Duolin is short plus long acting reliever, and Seroflo is long acting reliever with a steroid. I am sure you are more confused now. Seroflo is good for those having long standing persistent breathlessness and is used permanently. Other two are combinations of reliever (relieving the symptoms immediately) at the same time containing steroid also known here as preventer (which helps internal congestion of tubes. It is preferred that your doctor prescribes both contents seperately hence reliever like Salbutamol or Levo salbutamol is used more frequently for immediate relief. The other one steroid or prev enter is used only twice a day as required. This should suit you .But meet your doctor first.

that may be due to irregular bowels. and food intake timings were not proper. so formed gases were creating problem. apply few drops coconut oil before going to working site.. so it will prevent dust particles to enter in your body. try to maintain food timings.. it means when u feel hungry only at that take your food otherwise no need.
