Question: Can I receive a prescription tonight for an asthma inhaler from an online physician?
Details: I'm having asthma symptoms. Was recently at my physician about a week ago and ECG and breathing tests came out just fine, so it was diagnosed anxiety (xanax script). Happy to have xanax but that's not solving the problem. In the past I could get an inhaler from the local pharmacy; obviously that is no longer an option. Please advise. Thanks!

Hi. I am 42 year old fit and healty male, I have been experiencing wheezing during exhalation off and on for the last
12 months. I have had cardiac testing and lung testing and X-rays and all is looking normal. I have also trailed a variety of asthma inhalers without success. My symtoms are fatigue, irritability, bad sleeping, exhausted upon waking, lack of concentration, cannot exhale carbon dioxide efficiently during exercise, headaches.
Iatelly the laboured breathing is becoming more frequent. My latest observation is that the wheezing or restriction may be in the upper throat region. I am no doctor so this may be an incorrect observation.
I now fear I may stop breathing while sleeping.
Your help would be much appreciated.
