  • Remember that when someone is having an attack, they'll almost always find it easier to breathe while sitting up than lying down. So don't make the mistake of getting them to lie down -- settle them into a sitting position and make them as comfortable as possible. Beta-adrenergic drugs are medications that relax smooth muscle and widen the airways. They are commonly used for relieving sudden attacks of asthma and preventing exercise-induced asthma.___________________Get Your 24 Hour Yeast Infection Cure Here
