I have asthma and bipolar disease. The medications I take

Customer Question

I have asthma and bipolar disease. The medications
I take are. : zantac, aspirin, neurontin, effexor xr, lipitor,
ability. I have an inhaler I use in case of breath shortness.
It is albuterol sulfate. Last evening I had a feeling of strong
irritation in my throat, similar to salt like coming . What follow
ed was strong coughing such that it was very difficult to
catch my breath. The cough was so strong that pain from
it traveled into my chest and arms. I used my inhaler
yesterday. Another episode woke of the same nature woke
me up in the middle of the night. Today I had two more
episodes of the same nature. Can you advise me what may
be causing this. I am under care for heat disease and bipolar
disease. Thank you.
