Asthma and Coughing
I have a 4-year-old son who was diagnosed with asthma when he was 2 years old. Every year, about this time when the weather changes, he has an “episode.” He just coughs, coughs and coughs. It seems that nothing helps! What should I do?

Flu Shots
My 9-year-old daughter has asthma. She had her flu shot late in the season in April 2009. Should I take her to get another one now or is there a time period to wait since she has already received one in 2009?

Asthma and H1N1
Am I considered a high risk candidate for H1N1 flu infection if my asthma has been dormant for more than fourteen years?

Discontinued Inhalers
I have used an albuterol inhaler for a few years. I picked up my prescription from the pharmacy from the pharmacy today and was given Pro-Air and told that you can no longer albuterol inhalers in the U.S. because they are damaging to the environment. I was told this went into effect January 1st. Is there any truth to this?
