I use other inhalers, but they don't help as well as PM. I still wake up barely breathing, chest tightness, wheezing, coughing and everything. Any suggestions?

Does taking a 12-hour sudafed pill before you go to bed help you? That's what works the best for me, even though it's not as convenient to buy sudafed as it used to be.

I haven't tried that yet, but I will. Thanks!

I stocked up on a bunch of these in 2011 - I still have 4 or 5 left...lol. I don't need to use it often, but when I get gunky whenever I have a chest cold, that's the only thing that'll work to any satisfaction.

Keeping my fingers crossed they'll start making them again before I run out (probably about 2020.)

I stocked up as well when I found out it would no longer be available. The two I have left are expired, is it safe to still use it?

The other thing that might help when you have a bad chest cold is albuterol syrup, which is available by prescription only, but works very well. My dad's doctor prescribes it for him every time he gets a cold, so we've got quite a stock built up.

The inhalers you have are prescription, yes? Do you also do Advair?

I think it should be good for about 10 years - don't pay attention to those expiry dates - it's just a ruse to get you to buy more. The ones I use from '11 still seem just as fresh as a brand-new puffer.

I have been keeping my spares in the fridge, though - I think this will extend the life of them quite a bit longer.

I haven't heard about that before - I'll ask my doctor about that when I go in January.

Yes I'm using a prescription called Asmanex, is Advair a better option?
