hey everyone. i was recently diagnosed with asthma and was given a blue and brown inhaler.
i also made an asthma plan with my nurse which was to take 1 puff morning and night of the brown one and IF i was ILL to take 2 puffs morning and night.
now my asthma was really not controlled very well (i felt so anyways) which is why i got the asthma plan. so i decided to try something myself. (dont be mad! lol)
i took the 2 puff dosage and continued taking it and now about 2 weeks later i am finally seeing a result. finally for the first time since i was diagnosed i feel better!! i had rung the asthma nurse on here a while ago and she told me to be taking two puffs but i didnt want to overide my nurses decision so i stuck to what she had told me, but now i see that the higher dossage works better.
should i just keep it this way? should i tell her? or should i go back to 1 puff morning and night like she told me and then have to take my blue one all the time because i keep getting symptoms??
and also i am at uni and have my first exam tomorrow- very very stressed. is this a good enough reason so be on the higher dosage again? as if i were ill?
