I loathed my inhalers bc it makes my heart race like crazy. Have any of you experienced that and/or tried other forms of asthma management under the care of a doctor?

      Montekulast helps reduce inflammation so it helps you breathe easier but its usually paired with inhalers because those are much more fast acting. I do have the same thing with my inhalers. The chamber helps a lot and sometimes eating but im not sure how accurate the eating part is. I haven't really tried anything other than my inhalers though tbh

      I hate albuterol for the same reason. I was prescribed to a steroid inhaler when I was first diagnosed, and when my asthma was still not under control, we upped the dosage. Now I only have to use my inhaler if I’m going for a run in the cold, and that’s not too bad bc I’m already a bit shaky.

      I second the montelukast comment- it has helped me for years. My asthma is pretty bad, so I am also on something called a biologic that helps my asthma be less reactive. Also, if you switch from albuterol to Xopenex it can make a difference for racing heart and shakiness!

      I basically take montelukast everyday and that helps my asthma everyday without the inhaler. Inhalers due the same to my heart rate too so you are not alone lol.

      Yeah I found a steroid inhaler to help a lot because Albuterol made my heart race too and I didn't like it.

      Sometimes when I use my albuterol inhaler it makes me shake really bad, but i also have a Wixela inhaler and I take Montelukast and I haven't really noticed any side effects from those

      I found that for my particular condition even though I did use inhalers for years I was able to stop using them to the point where I only use the rescue inhaler under dire circumstances. But all of my doctors think I should be using an every day inhaler but the thing is is that it has cortisol which can cause osteoporosis thinning bones which I already have so I don’t know if it’s worth having broken hips being confined into a wheelchair just to breathe a little bit easier.
