Oral Thrush















I recently received an e-mail from a patient in regards to an infection she developed in her mouth due to her (MDI) Metered dose inhaler. I think this is an important topic to talk about so all of us using MDI's can be extra careful.

This infection is called "Thrush". It is a yeast infection of the mucous membranes of the mouth, effecting the cheeks, tongue and roof of the mouth.

Folks usually get "Thrush" from not rinsing well after use of their inhalers. The chemicals in the medicine stick inside your mouth, causing the infection which consists of open sores. This infection is a side effect of taking inhaled corticosteroids.

I was using an MDI with steroids and because I did not rinse after eash use, the medicine stayed inside my mouth. After a while it became so sore and nasty. If I had rinsed after each use, I could have lessened the severity of the infection.

These sores are quite painful, keeping you on a diet of soft foods and liquids.
Your Pulmonary doctor will most likely prescribe an anti-fungal mouthwash or lozenges, which are used for 5-10 days. This infection does not clear up over night, if you are still having a problem after the prescribed time frame. Give your dr. another call, he may prescribe other meds for you.

A few suggestions to help you beat the "Thrush":

- Rinse... Rinse your mouth after every MDI use. (do not swallow!)
- Yogurt... Eat at least 1/2 cup to coat your mouth after using the inhaler.
- Spacer... Use a spacer which is a medical device approved by the FDA to be used by a patient to increase the effectiveness and safety of a metered-dose inhaler.

I have included a link that will give you more information on "Thrush" and the use of a spacer on your MDI.

Great blog. I really liked it. I have also created a lens in same niche. This is my first time, hope u guys like it. Here’s a brief intro. Although there are many reasons why people get yeast infections, one of the mains reasons is the use of antibiotics. Yeast infections are unfortunately one of the more common side effects when women use oral antibiotics. What happens is that the antibiotics fight off disease-causing bacteria.

Clomiphene(Clomid) tablet
What is this medicine?

CLOMIPHENE is a fertility drug used to increase the chance of getting pregnant. It is

used to help women ovulate (produce a mature egg) properly during their cycle. Compared

to other fertility treatments, clomiphene alone does not greatly increase your chances

of having multiple babies. An increased chance of having twins may occur in roughly 5

out of every 100 women who take this medication. Occasionally clomiphene is prescribed

to men with fertility problems due to low sperm counts.
