I really need to push for an appoinment with the asthma nurse at our practice so I don't have to keep plaguing you lovely people with my questions!
While much improved at the end of the course of pred (and having taken her Seretide 50 down to 2 puff twice a day from the three twice a day previously) we have just done dd's evening peak flow (which was an amazing 310 - highest it's been in weeks:o)) but immediately afterward she is coughing something awful (dry, honking cough) and complaining of a tight chest. 2 puffs of ventolin and she's fine now but is it normal to be coughing and tightchested just from doing a peak flow?
And should a single puff of ventolin give her quite uncomfortable palpitations? I know palpitations can be side effect but just one or two puffs of the stuff and she's really very uncomfortable.
Jacqui - clearly still on a huge learning curve:o/
