In a new report from Medical News today, the FDA says there are four drugs that are particularly likely to cause allergic reactions in people with chronic asthma.
All four drugs are used in combination with corticosteroids to treat asthma, but are currently not approved for use by asthma patients.
All are approved for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which can lead to chronic exacerbations of asthma.
The four drugs have not been studied in patients with COPD, so the FDA is relying on clinical trials to determine if the drugs work well for treating COPD.
These drugs are not covered by insurance.
The three drugs in this list are: sertraline (Cortana) sertalizumab (Avastin) divalproex (Effexor) The three other drugs in the list are nifedipine (Meprosyn), nivolumab, and a combination of the two.
The first two drugs are approved to treat severe asthma.
They are marketed to treat COPD in children and adults with COPE.
The combination of two of these drugs, divalprone and niferex, has been approved for treatment of COPD and severe asthma in children under the age of 18.
The second drug, nivrolumab is used in adults with severe asthma to treat the exacerbations associated with COPC.
The FDA has been working to determine whether the combination of divalprex and nivollumab works well for asthma patients and COPD patients.
The third drug, evapamethasone (Eve), is used to treat recurrent asthma in people who have severe asthma or COPD but not COPD as a whole.
This drug is currently approved to provide partial relief for asthma in the treatment of people with COP and COPE combined.
The fourth drug, sertradolol, is a novel treatment for severe asthma and COPC patients that was approved for the treatment in adults at risk for COPD (the older adults with underlying COPD).
This drug has not been tested in patients in the current trial.
If approved, srt-2 inhibitors could provide patients with severe or COPC COPD relief from the worsening of asthma and chronic obstructives without affecting the risk for chronic exacerbation of asthma or asthma exacerbations.
The next step for the FDA to take is to schedule the trials of these four drugs and then to review the data to determine which drugs may be more appropriate for people with asthma.
