General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

problems using Combivent Respimat Inhaler
I have used the Combivent Inhaler for several years now with much success. I was instructed to take 2 puffs at a time up to 4 times a day as needed. Usually 2 or 3 times a day was enough. The problem I have with the Respimat inhaler is I am directed to take only one puff now and most people with asthma or other pulmonary problems can't inhale enough to get the full dosage of the respimat inhaler. I am losing almost half of the dosage due to the inability to inhale that much at a time. the regular Combivent was much more effective and lasted longer.

Combivent usage for two doses
A friend suggested I try combivent. My doctor prescribed it for me on my Monday appointment. I was not able to get it until Thursday. I used it first on Friday morning at 6:00am, and then again at noon. I was in severe trouble from the beginning. I couldn't breath all that morning, and figured I must have not gotten a full dose in the morning. So I used it at noon. By 2:00 I was not able to breath and it took 5 minutes to even catch my breath. I took my blood pressure around 3:00. It was 210 over 175 with 127 plus beats per minute. To say I was feeling lousey would have been an understatement. Needless to say I stopped the medicine immediately. Today is Sunday and I am feeling a little better....not much though. I am so sorry I ever took it and hope someone learns from me before they put themselves through that!!!!
