Coughing all of the time

Lately I have been coughing so much its driving me and my boyfriend insane, I take my flixotide in the morning and the occasional ventolin when im coughing but it doesnt seem to help. Any tips?

Just when I was diagnosed with asthma the doctor didnt have to listen to my chect he heard me coughing down the hall!!!

So if any one can help me I would be doesnt help when you can feel your chest rattling wither. Do many other people get this?

how long have you been on flixotide and what dose? maybe you need something extra like serevent or singulair.


If the cough is unusually bad for you then I would suggest at least speaking to your asthma nurse or GP as they may want to add to, or change your meds.

Surprisingly considering my name (LOL), I have this problem too! This year seems to be particularly bad because of the very high pollen count and muggy heat but I do find generally that it takes very little to set me off.

Unfortunately our coughs are painfully tiring to us and painfully annoying to other people.

Take care and happy coughing.
