Ventolin and some other anti-asthma preps. tend to decrease mucuos secretions thus making the throat dry and therefore itchy In addition, read the drug literature very carefully. There is at least one puffer in common use which can have a deliterious effect on your vocal chords making you hoarse (or worse). This is overcome by gargling after using the puffer but over here the MDs don't always tell you.

Puffer fish swim like any other fish, by using their fins and streamlined body for movement and gills for breathing. The puffer fish only bloats up its body when it is threatened making it difficult to swim but its not like that all the time, in fact the puffer fish is a very good swimmer
