I'm a singer and have recently been diagnosed with asthma. Am on steroid tablets (again), brown, green and blue inhalers. Don't feel my asthma was under control so have asked to take steroid tabs again, on advice of the Asthma adviceline nurse. I've found that Beclazone has really affected my voice badly, and the adviceline nurse said try Ciclesonide as it only activates once it reaches the lungs and doesn't therefore coat the vocal chords with active steroids. Are there any singers out there who can give me some advice? I'm tempted to forgoe my brown inhaler on concert days, to give my voice a chance of sounding OK, as I think it bounces back pretty quickly, though I know this isn't really a good idea. Any experience other pro singers have had would be very helpful, as I'm doomed to keep taking the medication until it's all under control, but having difficulty performing with a cracked-sounding voice.
