Should I bring my inhaler? (please help)?
I have exercise induced asthma and I have an inhaler that I take 30 minutes prior to exercise. But yesterday I had to take it to relieve symptoms even though I wasn't exercising. I am going to my friends house today to watch a football game. My question is:
Should I bring my inhaler just in case I need it, or do you think I will be fine?
By the way I'm a 13 year old girl and was diagnosed with exercise induced asthma about 2 months ago.

If it's a rapid acting medication like "albuterol", then it wouldn't hurt to take it along. If it's a steroid-based inhaler, it will not work in an acute asthma attack! So, you be the judge.

You should carry your inhaler wherever you go.

I'd take your inhaler with you just to be on the safe side. Talk to you parents sounds like a chat with your asthma nurse would be a good idea so you learn more about your condition.

I will only tell once after that you are on your own.

No matter where you are always have your inhaler on your person ok.

Bring it with you because you never know when asthma is going to strike. If you have exercise induced asthma and needed to relieve your symptoms when you weren't exercising then its best to get checked out because it may not be just exercised induced it could be something else that triggers you.

I have asthma and usually its exercised induced, but asthma is actually an allergic reaction to things in the air. Therefore the more you breathe in the more of these particles get into your lungs causing the reaction and your asthma. This can come from breathing faster whilst exercising, or even breathing in more whilst laughing.
Basically what I'm trying to say is there is not real way of knowing when you will have a reaction or not, so its best to try and take your inhaler everywhere. When I was little I had a little bag, only just big enough to fit my inhaler in, which I always had over my shoulder. Now I just keep one in my handbag, but its a very good habit to get into. So find a good way of remembering to take it out with you, then stick with it. I know it can be a bit of a pain, but it may one day save your life!


ash
Whats the harm in bringing it just in case?

Its better to be safe than sorry. And you would be VERY sorry if you needed your puffer when you didnt have it.

Bring it with you.

if i was you i would take it any way

Living with asthma is a pain in the but. why make it harder on yourself. Always have help handy,and let your doctor know whenever you have an attack and what you were doing when it started,It takes a long time to really get a fix on it but when all is said and done it may be very easy to control. till then... good luck and keep your inhaler with you.
Peace
