Long acting beta agonist and steroid

For many of our patients with moderate or severe asthma, we continue to prescribe the long-acting beta agonists. In many instances they provide dramatic, sometimes life-altering benefit. But we also take seriously the new warnings about the risks associated with their use. When we recommend their use, we do so as part of a comprehensive program of asthma management. This program includes avoiding as much as possible the triggers that cause your asthma and allergies to flare; periodic review of your medications to ensure the optimal treatment regimen; monitoring for deteriorations in your asthma; and developing a plan to deal with flare-ups before they become dangerously severe (your “asthma action plan”). You can help by taking your medications as prescribed, being alert to signs that your asthma is worsening, communicating with your asthma providers when you are not doing well, and keeping your regular follow-up medical appointments. We share with you the same goal: an active and safe life unrestricted by asthma or its treatments. Together we can achieve this goal, using the best available treatment program.

Ivabradine blocks the hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channel responsible for the cardiac pacemaker I(f) ‘funny' current, which regulates heart rate without any effect on ventricular repolarization or myocardial contractility. It is indicated to reduce the risk of hospitalization for worsening heart failure in patients with stable, symptomatic chronic heart failure with LVEF ≤35%, who are in sinus rhythm with resting heart rate ≥70 bpm and either are on maximally tolerated doses of beta-blockers or have a contraindication to beta-blocker use.

These receptors, like those in the heart, are coupled to a Gs-protein , which stimulates the formation of cAMP . Although increased cAMP enhances cardiac myocyte contraction (see above), in vascular smooth muscle an increase in cAMP leads to smooth muscle relaxation. The reason for this is that cAMP inhibits myosin light chain kinase that is responsible for phosphorylating smooth muscle myosin. Therefore, increases in intracellular cAMP caused by β 2 -agonists inhibits myosin light chain kinase thereby producing less contractile force (., promoting relaxation).

  • Serevent® (salmeterol)
  • Foradil® (formoterol)
Controller Medications
  • Prevent asthma symptoms from occurring
  • Can reduce and/or prevent:
    • Inflammation and scarring in the airways
    • Tightening of the muscle bands around the airways (bronchospasm)
  • Do not show immediate results, but work slowly over time
  • Should be taken daily, even when you are not having symptoms
  • Should NOT be used to relieve immediate asthma symptoms
Long-Term Controller Medicines in Children According to the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program at the National Institutes of Health, long-term controller medicines should be considered when infants or young children have had three or more episodes of wheezing in the previous 12 months and who are at an increased risk of developing asthma because of their own or their parents' history of allergic diseases.

They also recommend long-term controller medicines for children who need short-acting bronchodilators (rescue medicines) more than twice a week or have had severe asthma symptoms less than six weeks apart. Without a controller medicine, the underlying inflammation will continue to cause more asthma symptoms.
