Creating Waves of Awareness

Today, I experienced a remarkable phenomena.

Yesterday [a bit before] I came down with a flu which I expected from a previous experience to last a while [from the way it started and from past experience.]


I felt dreadful. I took early dose of echinacea tincture and tried a homeopathic flu formula, but got just worse.


As I was coughing tremendously and thyme/fenugreek /homeopathy did little to relieve, I decided to take one puff of Ventolin. Of course, in many cases this may relieve the cough if there is a spastic component, as I knew personally from the past.


What was weird: The flu improved dramatically within half an hour or so and the improvement lasted. The improvement and the rapidity was too fast to consider it a natural phenomena. I looked up in Julian if Ventolin was ever proved, but could not find any proving.


In the past, I occasionally used Ventolin, but it helped only temporarily for cough/breathing. I never experienced this rapid effect, which I can't relate to any other thing. Does anyone know of the homeopathic effects of Ventolin? Anybody with this experience?

Important Safety Information About VENTOLIN HFA 90 mcg

Do not use VENTOLIN HFA if you are allergic to albuterol sulfate or any of the ingredients in VENTOLIN HFA. If you have any questions or are not sure, you should ask your healthcare provider.
Tell your healthcare provider about the medicines you take and about all of your medical conditions.
Use VENTOLIN HFA exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to use it. Do not increase your dose or take extra doses of VENTOLIN HFA without first talking to your healthcare provider.

  • Get medical help right away if VENTOLIN HFA no longer helps your symptoms (like wheezing and trouble breathing), if your symptoms get worse, or if you need to use your inhaler more often.

  • While you are using VENTOLIN HFA, use other inhaled medicines and asthma medicines only as directed by your healthcare provider.

VENTOLIN HFA may cause serious side effects, including:

  • worsening trouble breathing, coughing, and wheezing (paradoxical bronchospasm). If this happens, stop using VENTOLIN HFA and call your healthcare provider or get emergency help right away. This is more likely to happen with your first use of a new canister of medicine.
  • heart problems, including faster heart rate and higher blood pressure.
  • possible death in people with asthma who use too much VENTOLIN HFA.
  • allergic reactions. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any of the following symptoms of an allergic reaction:
  • itchy skin
  • swelling beneath your skin or in your throat
  • rash
  • worsening trouble breathing
  • low potassium levels in your blood.
  • worsening of other medical problems in people who also use VENTOLIN HFA, including increases in blood sugar.

Common side effects of VENTOLIN HFA include:

  • your heart feels like it is pounding or racing (palpitations)
  • chest pain
  • fast heart rate
  • shakiness
  • nervousness
  • headache
  • pain
  • dizziness
  • sore throat

Dear Dr Harold - I imagine that a proving would include all the side effects listed on the manufacturer's website. 

Thanks you Mrs Debby for your reaction and suggestions.

Most of the side effects described are very rare except palpitations or some jittery feelings in sensitive people or if used to frequently. [and on has to be careful with patients with arritmia's]

I have a long experience with ventolin in the past with patients.

Again it may all be coincidence, but I was struck by a totally not expected  rapidly "coming out of a bad flue" after one puff which was totally not in my mind [just took to make the cough some easier]

It may be just good luck or serendipity?

If anyone ever prescribes this op to his patients, you may want to look if you ever see such a reaction again.
