I am taking salbutamol Sulphate. The doctors instructions were 2 puffs, four times a day.
I have been and seen a locum doctor this morning as my asthma has been worse due to the weather - I have already been taking the maximum of the salamol plus i have been doubling my Symbicort 200/6 for the last week to four puffs a day instead of two. However, in the evenings i get a terrible cough and tight chest still.
She said to carry on with the double dose of symicort but that i could use my salamol doing 6-8 puffs four times a day! She said be careful though as it may make me dizzy! I'm sure I have read that you are only meant to have 8 puffs of salamol in a 24hr period!
Can someone help me with this?
