Study: certain asthma drug combo may be particularly effective

There are many individuals out there who have had their lives impacted by asthma. Over 35 million individuals in the United States and Canada suffer from asthma. This condition can cause a person to suffer debilitating asthma attacks and other serious symptoms. In some cases, asthma and its symptoms make a person unable to have employment.

Given how impactful asthma symptoms can be, learning about what sorts of treatments are best able to control such symptoms is a very important endeavor.

Recently, a study looked at various past drugs trials to see if there are any drug combinations that are particularly effective at helping with asthma symptoms. Sixty-four drugs trials were reviewed and 15 different drug combinations were looked at in the study.

The typical starting treatment for asthma is inhaled corticosteroids. The study found that there is one drug combination that generally shows a greater degree of effectiveness when it comes to symptom control than inhaled corticosteroids alone. The combination in question is inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta antagonists.

Currently, drug combinations are generally not turned to early in a person’s asthma treatment. One wonders if this study and similar research will lead to any changes regarding this when it comes to the drug combination of inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta antagonists.

Asthma is one of the conditions that individuals sometimes submit Social Security Disability Insurance applications in relation to. One situation asthma sufferers may find themselves in is having their initial claim for SSDI benefits denied. An important thing to note is that this does not mean a person has no hope of getting SSDI benefits. There is an appeals process for SSDI claim denials. Experienced disability attorneys can give SSDI benefits applicants in Harrisburg guidance when it comes to the appeals process and can work to help such individuals build as strong of an appeal as possible.
