i had asthma since i was 5. i am 25 years old now, and been a pack day smoker since 13. i noticed my breathing getting worse a few months ago. the tightness and immflamation were a daily occurence. this led to panic attacks which caused me to go to the hosp several times cause i thought i was having an asthma attack. the docs say my lungs sound fine, but i cant even take out the garbage without getting out of breath. i was prescribed flovent, its been 4 weeks and no improvement. i had another severe panic episode last week and was given paxil. its been 7 days and today i notice improvment. my panic attacks were daily, today i actually felt good lol. i guess they working for my panic attacks, but the shortness of breath is still there.
today i start champix, but am leary because of all the ''horror'' stories, plus im on paxil and not quite sure if its good idea to take both at same time. maybe i should wait until i am done the 30 day paxil treatment before starting. what you guys think?
