The new inhaler I was put on is Dulera. This replaces my daily inhaler & my fast-acting inhaler. I had to stop my fast-acting inhaler (pro-air) due to high heart rate. Doctor says if this one does it, I'll have to go to a cardiologist.

Well, at first I thought it was my imagination, but I think Dulera is causing high heart rate, jitteryness, hoarse voice & shaky hands. I've been on it for almost a week. When I go in for my allergy shots tomorrow, I am going to ask the nurse. I REALLY DON'T want to see a cardiologist. I'm really hoping this is just my imagination because my breathing seems to have improved on this inhaler. I haven't exercised though, because I am afraid I would have a stroke or something. I haven't mentioned this to my husband, because his mom thinks I'm a hypochondriac. emoticon

I wish my parents wouldn't have named me Claudia... Did you know that Claudia means LAME?!?!?! Yikes! I'm already a walking medicine cabinet.

    I'm telling Matt if you don't tell him! Even little sisters look out for big sisters sometimes.

    I'm sorry you're feeling crappy. :(

    Ok did you mean to sound like a commercial at the start of this blog. The whole "This replaces my daily inhaler & my fast-acting inhaler. I had to stop my fast-acting inhaler" sounds like a commercial to me. Ok now that I got that out of the way. I do not think you are a hypochondriac, and I doubt your husband does either!! YOu need to take care of you and you need to keep hubby informed of your health!! TELL HIM!!!

    Ok keep me posted on what the dr says tomorrow, but did you get that I wanted you to tell hubby?!?!?

    Don't take things so literally on the meaning of your name. Beside the website that I looked at had the meaning as "Disabled" whats in a name anyway? Don't sweet it. I can tell you that you are the Claudia that I know and to me that is cool Every one knows a Sandra or Sandy, and Sandy is also a dogs name. People tell me that all the time, or that they know a guy with that name. I would rather have a name that doesn't have the same meaning of being covered in Sand!! emoticon
