@Readybird19641! You should be fine with all your inhalers.

Proair is the generic form of albuterol so you don’t need to use both. I am a respiratory therapist and a asthmatic.

@Readybird19641! Proair is the generic form of albuterol do you should not need both. Unless one is an inhaler and one is a nebulizer? I am a respiratory therapist and an asthmatic.

Hi Juan. Yes they will say treat it as covid for now just to quarantine if any other symptoms arise. I was diagnosed with Covid and never caught a fever, minimal coughing due to having asthma. But the difference and what made them decide to test me was that, none of my treatments was working not even prednisone. I continued to go back to the doctor/hospital X-ray was always clear. But the very last time I went they decided to test me because I work in the hospital and it made no sense for me to keep going back to work if I did in fact have covid. But each time they would tell me treat it as covid and stay home
