 3  Asthma Have not been tking long enough to see any. The taste left in your mouth after the inhaler is not that great - but all inhalers have this problem and I wouldn't say it's any better or worse than anything else. If you want to treat Asthma without Long acting Beta drugs, or without Steroids, it's had to find meds. This is one of them - actually very side-effect free (Cromelyn Sodium is actuall OTC in NasalCrom it's so side-effect free). It does not work as good as Advair (Which I was on) but I'm willing to deal with a little tighter chest to avoid the side effects of Advair. M 30 1 weeks

INTAL  (CROMOLYN SODIUM):  This medication is used to treat mastocytosis, a disease that occurs when the body has too many mast cells. These normal body cells release substances (e.g., histamines) that are needed for normal body defense and healing, but when too many mast cells are present, they release too much of these substances. This can lead to symptoms such as diarrhea, stomach/abdominal pain, itching, rash, and flushing. Cromolyn belongs to a class of medications called mast cell stabilizers. It works by preventing mast cells from releasing the substances that can cause these skin and gut problems.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
