I am an asthma patient since childhood but everything is under good control. I only need to take asthalin inhaler after March for a month or so when we start removing woolens and I start getting attacks but as soon as I get the feel of getting attack, before only I inhale one puff and I am able to prevent the attack. Occasionally when it does not improve, I take seroflo one or two puffs. If that also does not help only then I consult a doctor for oral medication dose. Generally in a year I must not be taking more than 20 puffs in all. Is there anything wrong in my approach? I do not want to take too many medicines and want to heal by taking precautions. Please suggest if there is anything I should be knowing regarding my problem in a long run considering the way I am handling my problem. Thank you.

You are handiling well. My advice to you do pranayam will help you lot. You take shwasni avalh 1 spoon in morning empty stomatch after 30 monuties take breakfast end in night after dinner if you take 6 month you will not get attacks early. Cost is also very economical take as a tonic for lungs. After taking 1/2spoon keep in mouth 30 second it melt thsn intake like this second 1/2spoon also do not take water for 30 monuties. If you gets relife report to me after 3 month.

Hello there, for cough, take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from dry cough; you can also drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. Salted hot water gargling also helps. And stay away from cold drinks and don't take milk when having cough

My dad is suffering from PTB doctor suggested to have bronchoscopy for understanding weather its of type mdr or not? What should we do? Should we wait for results of first line medicine or go with test? How much is cost of bronchoscopy in mumbai? And is it hurting patient in any way?

Hi lybrate-user, If your doctor might have asked for a bronchoscopy then I believe they have tested his sputum and found him to be still positive, despite treatment. If that is the case, then it is advisable to get it done as you need to know if your father is suffering from MDR TB. The treatment for MDR is a lot different from the fisrt line therapy in terms of drug used and also the duration of treatment. Sorry I cannot accurately tell you about the pricing in Mumbai, but I believe it can range from 2500 to 15000 depending on the centre. It is usually a painless procedure but can cause a lot of discomfort, depending on the expertise of the doctor.
