Patients experiences

I can tell you from personal experience that I too had to get off my steroid inhaler when I started the MP. I was so scared to do this, as my asthma was so bad. Much to my relief, the Benicar was better than the steroid inhaler! I also used a long acting (12-hour) non-steroidal inhaler, but after one year on the MP, I no longer needed it. I do still use the short-acting inhaler four times a day, but only need one puff.

My asthma is triggered by MCS. The MCS has also improved on the MP. I actually once left the house without my inhaler, and the Benicar stopped my asthma attack with in 10 minutes. I should have chewed and put it under my tongue, but I was not thinking. This allows for quicker absorption. I was so impressed that the Benicar could do this.
