We hope one drug can treat both disorders – asthma and allergy. Indeed, some treatment can reduce both asthma and allergy symptoms, but most medicines are designed to treat either one or the other. A few treatments below can help with both diseases.
Montelukast (Singulair) is a medication that eases both allergy and asthma symptoms. Called a leukotriene modifier, this daily pill helps control immune system chemicals (antibodies) released during an allergic reaction. In rare cases, this and other leukotriene modifiers have been linked to severe side effects, such as psychological reactions, including suicidal thinking. Seek medical advice right away for any unusual psychological reaction to one of these medications.
Allergy Shots (Immunotherapy)
Allergy shots can help treat nasal allergy and asthma by gradually reducing your immune system response to certain triggers for nasal allergy and asthma. Immunotherapy involves getting regular injections of a tiny amount of the allergens that trigger your symptoms. Your immune system builds up a tolerance to the allergens over time, and your allergic reactions diminish. In turn, asthma symptoms decrease as well. This treatment generally requires regular injections over a period of more than two years.
Nasal Irrigation with NasalCare
An effective nasal cleansing can help to reduce the suffering from nasal allergy and asthma. Nasal irrigation can remove these allergens away from your nasal cavities. NasalCare Nasal Irrigation System won the best New Product Award for Cough, Cold and Allergy. When the triggers are removed away, asthma flare up should be reduced.
