Tell him to just stick with the prescribed plan from his doctor. Most people take some type of controller medication IE: Inhaled Steroid / Long acting broncodailator(advair), and a LTD4 recepter antagonist (Singulair) + a short acting Brocondailator (Albuterol). There are basically 4 types of asthmatics and they range from execise induced to Severe persistant. It really depends on how well he is controlled and if he is good about taking his controler medications. Its important for your buddy to make sure he always have his Albuterol nearby before working out. That's when a lot of people get into trouble. I think the key would be to make sure that is under control then, try a low dose of gear. I am asthmatic and I have never had a problem with Gear, But I am really good about sticking to my asthma plan of action. That really is the key. Also, keep in mind those inhaled steroids are totally different then the ones he'll be sticking in his ass. They do 0 for the muscles.
Gook luck bro

thanks man i'll let him know,but you've not had any direct complications from the gear itself? he wants to run 500mgs test e and around 400mgs deca think there will be a problem with that as long as he is cautious and prepared.

I think he'll be fine as long as he's not 16yrs old, and 140lbs. rememeber to read up on everything here. Clomid, Nov.... etc ya know the drill.. at least you should now that you have found this board bro. It would not hurt to have his Albuterol around when he does his first inject. It can't hurt.
Good luck man

Asthma is treated with two types of medicines – long-term control and quick-relief medicines. Long-term medicines help reduce airway inflammation and prevent asthma symptoms. Quick-relief medicines relieve asthma symptoms that may flare-up. But there are natural ways for allergy asthma treatment if you are bothered in the side effects of these medicines.
Although asthma is a reversible disease, and treatments are available, people can die from a severe asthma attack thus follow this easy 5-step program to control your asthma.
Step 1: avoid or try to control exposure to, anything that you know triggers your asthma or makes it worse.
Step 2: take your controller medicines every day.
Step 3: ask your doctor or allergist.
Step 4: act fast if an asthma allergy starts.
Step 5: keep your house clean and dust-free.
Just an additional..

Asthma in alot of cases (if not all) is a result of a food intolerance, It either shows as asthma or eczema is in different people.
Can be a result of
Bad food decisions affecting GI health causing the above 2 and manifesting as what we know as asthma..
I have not used ventilin for so many years i can not count now...
Get your friend to see a Good Natural therapist who speicialises in asthma and food intolerances. It will be gone and he will not have to worry about it then he can do what ever cycle he likes...

My oldest son was asthmatic and at 15 was only 5' tall and level 1 in puberty. Dr. gave him 3 months of testosterone injections and he started puberty. His asthma problems and food allergies went away over the next year. He hasnt hand a puffer or pills in years now!

I have asthma and I have not noticed any problems during my first cycle. I would say AAS have no direct affect on asthma, but that gaining weight quickly could make things a little worse. I would do some fairly intense cardio every few days to keep the lungs in shape.

I developed severe/chronic asthma at the age of 2. I was rushed to the hospital when my parents heard me wheezing and I was turning blue. From then through the age of 17 I was constantly taking every new med they came out with, as well as fairly regularly going to the ER for severe instant onset attacks. I lived in an oxygen tent in a hospital for 2 weeks once and saw countless specialists. My life seemed to revolve around me being sick and seeing doctors and taking meds. I had to get a school note for the school board to be excused for medical reasons because I far exceeded the allowable days of absence every year in school. I was frequently bedridden while wheezing and having other asthma symptoms, chest tightness, etc. Walking to the bathroom was a chore.
A big turn around came when I started seeing an allergist and they discovered, after testing me for like 100 different allergies or something that I was allergic to like 98 of them. I began taking shots of like anti-venom, tiny doses of each of the things I was allergic to for a few years, every week or every other week or something. It was a major pain in the ass but now I am only really allergic to dust and very mildly allergic to dogs and cats (if I pat them and rub my eyes they get red, if they scratch me the scratches turn red and itchy). As a child, if i entered a home with a dog or cat I could instantly feel like I was walking into a house filled with smoke, coughing and choking, eyes watering, it was intolerable for me to be in any house that had a dog or cat.
Fortunately now my asthma is only mild, I was talking just albuterol about once a month for the past year after weaning myself off of advair, and singulair before that but due to the recent less than good air quality in the area where I live I just went back on flovent, a less strong controller med than advair.
I had no prob's with anavar cycle. I will soon find out if I will have prob's with Test P/Var cycle. I might risk a Prop/Tren cycle at some point, making sure to overload with albuterol prior to injections and be ready to discontinue the tren if it's overly problematic.
