Whether long use of Seroflo 250 for asthma is harmful. Which medicine is suggested for very occasional asthma.
Montemac L is a controlled medicine for allergic asthma. If you are able to remain symptom free by using it daily, I would suggest you to continue it for at least 3 months continuously. I would suggest you to consult an Allergist-Immunologist who will suggest you allergy testing. This will help you identify substances causing symptoms to you as well as precautions regarding how to avoid them. Also, an Allergist may suggest you specific allergen immunotherapy depending upon the results of allergy testing, which may improve your allergy symptoms. Please try to avoid exposure to smoke, dusts and air pollution as much as possible. Also please do not smoke if you are a smoker. A nutritive diet rich in vitamins & minerals including anti-oxidants is very important to support immune system. I would also suggest you regular breathing exercises which help you in a long run.

Exercise. Nothing aids sleep at night like a good workout during the day. You don’t have to join a gym or spend hours on a treadmill to reap the benefits, though. Try taking a dance or yoga class with a friend, playing activity-based video games with your kids, watching your favorite TV show while on a stationary bike, or enjoying outdoor activities such as golf, playing Frisbee, or even yard work. Aim for 30 minutes or more of activity on most days—or three 10-minute sessions if that’s more convenient—but not too close to bedtime. Avoid naps. Napping during the day can make it more difficult to sleep at night. If you feel like you have to take a nap, limit it to 30 minutes before 3 p. M. Limit caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine. Stop drinking caffeinated beverages at least eight hours before bed. While alcohol can make you feel sleepy, it interferes with the quality of your sleep, and nicotine is a stimulant. Avoid late meals. Try to avoid heavy, rich foods within two hours of bed. Fatty foods can take a lot of work for your stomach to digest and spicy or acidic foods can cause heartburn. Stick to a regular sleep schedule. Support your biological clock by going to bed and getting up at the same time every day, including weekends, even if you’re tired.

Dear lybrate user, you must drink four glass of water early morning empty stomach without brushing very slowly after sitting on bed with crossing legs. Do it for one week. At the time of starting drinking water you will feel some difficulty but do not worry. You can drink water one glass after a gap of ten minutes. After taking four glass give a gap of first five minutes. After that you can eat anything.

Hi sir
Ayurvadic medicine for penis me uttegena kam ati hai uske liye ayurvadic medicine name

Hi onion is very good vegetable to treat sexual impotence. It increases libido and strengthens reproducing organs. White onions are best for this purpose. Take about 5-10 gm root powder of ladyfinger in a glass of milk. Add 2 tsp of mishri in this milk and drink it. This will prove helpful in improving sexual vigour. Apply pranacharya gopal oil on your penis and give a massage. It will strengthen your nerves and erection power will get better. You can take ayurvedic medicines too along with this.

For most people, the first week of quitting is the most difficult time. This is a time when getting over both the psychological dependency on cigarettes and physical effects of nicotine withdrawal can feel overwhelming. You might feel anxious, depressed, impatient, tired, or even hostile. During this critical time, it may be very tempting to go back to old behaviors and use smoking to deal with these feelings. Don’t worry, this stage in the process and the feelings you may have are only temporary. Although you may have cravings to smoke weeks or even months after quitting, as more time goes by, these urges will diminish in strength and frequency. Nicotine withdrawal symptoms are more short-lived, and should only last a few days (or a couple weeks) at most. When you put that into perspective with being smoke-free for the rest of your life, you know you can do it! The symptoms you experience in the first week will vary from one person to another, depending on how much nicotine your body is used to, and how much you smoked. Keep the tips below in mind to help you get through that important first week and set yourself up for success: •Remember that urges to smoke will come and go. Try waiting it out for a few minutes and occupying your mind with something else. •Remind yourself every day of why you are quitting. Your motivations for quitting can powerful reminders for when you’re in the worst parts of the quitting process. This is when you need them most to keep you on tract. •Write down your rationalizations. One way to help overcome cravings is to write down any rationalizations you may have for having a cigarette. Rationalizing is trying to find a good reason to do something you know is wrong. For example, “I’ll just have one cigarette today to get through this tough time,” or “you’ve got to die of something, might as well smoke.” If you write down rationalizations as they come to mind, it will help you to see them for what they are: traps to get you back into your smoking habit. •Drink plenty of water. Water cleanses and purifies your system while also giving you something to do with your hands. When you’re fully hydrated, your urge to eat is reduced as you’re stomach is full with liquids. This is a great tip if you’re concerned about weight gain. You can also drink herbal teas or fruit juices. •Take your mind off of a problem and come back to it later. With the symptoms of withdrawal at their height, you may feel that the world is against you. Remember that these feelings are only temporary. It may be tempting to think that it was better when you smoked because you didn’t feel this way. The truth is, these feelings will go away and once you’re past nicotine withdrawal, you are ready to feel even better than you ever did when you smoked. •Change everything! In many ways the habitual part of smoking cigarettes can be tied into your daily routines – the first cigarette with coffee in the morning, the drive to work, the smoke breaks, the after dinner cigarette. Think of ways to change everything so you can break free of the habit aspect of smoking. This is just a short-term adjustment. Once cigarettes are no longer a part of your life, you’ll go back to having different routines that you enjoy without smoking. •Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Your friends and loved ones want to support you any way they can. Your doctor can also be a great asset to you in leaving cigarettes behind, and can direct you toward other resources for help. Once you’ve gotten through the first week, you’ve passed a big milestone in the quitting process. While you may still find yourself dealing with urges and temptations to smoke, you will have the experience and success of your fist week behind you. In the weeks that follow, stay focused and keep moving toward your goal! When you quit smokeless tobacco, your withdrawal symptoms will be strongest during the first week. After two weeks of not using smokeless tobacco, your body will be rid of the addicting nicotine and the worst part will be over. Soon, you will feel better than you ever did when you dipped or chewed. But in the meantime, know the side effects you will experience when quitting so you can better deal with them: •Craving smokeless tobacco — Since nicotine is addictive, you'll have cravings for smokeless tobacco. Try waiting it out. Each urge to use will usually last only three to five minutes. Deep breathing and exercise help you feel better right away. •Feeling irritable, tense, restless or edgy— You're going through nicotine withdrawal. Try some form of exercise. Ask others to be patient. •Feeling hungry or having a desire for sweets — People do sometimes experience weight gain when they stop using tobacco. If you get hungry, drink fruit juices or eat a low calorie snack. Drink a lot of water. •Constipation/irregularity — Add fiber to your diet, like whole grain breads and cereals, fresh fruits and vegetables. If you have any further query feel free to ask. Regards, Sukanya Biswas.

As you said you have breathing difficulty while running. So why not do a pulmonary function test to know the severity of asthma and take regular medicines if required. You might have exercise induced asthma. Kindly don't ignore your problems as weight loss will become much easier later. Eat healthy low carbs, high proteins for weight loss.
