Medication to help with breathing ?

Hi all,

My doctor prescribed a reliever inhaler (ventolin) and a preventer inhaler (clenyl modulite.)

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with these and have they helped the breathing rate at all?

Is there a medication that stabilises the breathing rate ? If so I could do with some but I'm just wondering...

Yes. Benzos. But they're crazy addictive, and very quickly, you'll lose your ability to breathe in a stable way without them, in increasing large doses. Nothing beats practicing it yourself.

@needingamiracle I've merged the 2 threads you've got on medication for breathing so that the conversation is in one space. If you have any questions, shoot us a message at Contact Us.

PTSD & panic related breathing issues? Not one bit.

My asthma & pneumonia & atelectasis breathing issues? Ventolin is a Total life saver.

((My corticosteroids of choice happen to be dexamethasone & fluticasone. So I can’t speak to clenil))

I have COPD and sleep apnea so I use several medications such as a Ventolin inhaler, a Trelegy inhaler, and a CPAP and oxygen machine at night.

For anxiety that causes breathlessness:

I recall the sound of the ebb and flow of the ocean tide, ...in and out to the count of four. (Inhale to the count of 4 then hold for a count of four, exhale for the count of four, then hold again for the count of four. Repeat. This was discovered by accident, but it seems to help me a lot with shortness of breath due to high anxiety.
