I am currently being seen by my consultant at my local hospital at a recent appointment he asked what I thought would improve my asthma? Which has been uncontrolled for last 3/4 years. I have tried various combinations of medications including theophylines, montelukast, symbicort, atrovent, ventollin, intial, and antiacids to name but a few. I am currently on seretide 250, bricanyl and accolate with pred when needed plus various allergy meds (antihistamines,eye and nasal sprays and epi-pens) . Unfortunately, I am unable to go on Zolair as my IgE levels are too high. Personally I would like to go on a maintence dose of pred as when on pred this is the only time my asthma is controlled - however consultant says I am to young to do this as my bone density will suffer. My question is has any one else been in this position and what sort of medication worked for you. To be honest just looking for inspiration and other possible routes I could discuss with consultant as I am running out of ideas fast.....
