little nutter's asthma consultant at hospital gave us a supply of pred to use at home for when needed.
we always follow his plan, up his meds at first signs of asthma.
anyway in his plan when despite best efforts we get to asthma attack level and milti dosing is not effective, it says give 1st dose of pred 30mg and seek urgent dr review. Which we do 1st thing in the am when surgery opens so we can take him in. Where he would be perscribed a course of pred due to the flareup. Obv if multi dosing and pred wasn't working we would seek help as it says on the plan. When we have used this approach the pred seems to help when multi dosing alone isn't working. Obv we wouldn't give pred willy nilly, we'd only use it when we gets to the point of if things don't settle soon we will be going to A&E as we do try to keep on top of his asthma, and usually do...
But GP gets a bit off with us saying that we should always just go to A&E if multi dosing doesn't work. So why is this even in his asthma plan then? Anyone else experience this?
