My daughter has just started her third course of prednisone in the last month. She had a flare up a month ago and was given 5days worth which really picked her up. Last week she got croup which affected her breathing and aggravated her asthma resulting in 2 days in hospital which meant three days of dexamethasone since then she has been very wheezy and the g.p has given her 5 days of pred now. They have recommended that she has a appointment with her consultant. I rang his secretary today and she has said his next appointment is 19th October. I'm wondering if I should contact our g.p and get her to expedite this appointment or leave it until then and see how she goes? She is also taking 200 clenil, ventolin (at the mo 6 puffs every 2 hrs) and singulai. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
