    I am considering getting a different nebulizer. The one I have was intended to be used on the go, but I use it much more at home than what was intended. It is VERY slow. I am having to do 3 - 4 double nebs a day (two different medications at the same time) right now, and it is taking 30+ minutes to nebulize the medications. I just can't spend that much time tied up that way.

    Does anyone have any suggestions, recommendations, warnings etc for other nebulizers out there?

    I have found an Arial on Amazon for about $37, but I am not familiar with the quality of their products or if it would be any faster. It has a JetNeb, which sounds like it should be faster. It also has a life time warenty. Does anyone know anything about this company? Good or bad?

    I am also open to other reasonably priced suggestions.


    Also, I saw my allergist today for my Xolair shot. She ordered a thyroid workup. My lungs sound better, but not well - still prolonged, congested and a little wheezey, but the best they have sounded in a long time. I am down to 5 mg pred every other day. We will see what happens when I go completely off the stuff. On track for the aspirin challenge on the 31 though.

    Thanks everyone,
    Take care and God bless.

    I recently had to replace my neb for the same reason. I ended up getting a Pari TrekS. It is small and I purchased the battery to go with it. I didn't think I'd use the battery, but have found that I use it all of the time. I frequently have to use a combo neb of albuteral/atrovent-total of 4ml to inhale. It takes about 15 min total. Normal uses of brovana 2ml take 3 min. flat-much better than my old one that took 20 min just for the brovana.

    My asthma doc uses a Pari in her office, but its not the trekS. I have found that the LCSprint cup that you can get seems to move things along faster also. It's what I use all of the time.

    So far-in almost a year of use-I LOVE the Pari and will definitely stick with them.

    have a proneb ultra nebulizer. i is easy to take place to place. i find it smaller than most nebulizers and lighter. it gets plugged into a wall outlet. i really like it.
