I am 60 and have been asthmatic for over 12 years. Everything was well controlled until a couple of years ago when I caught a chest infection which aggravated the asthma. Been in hospital twice, once specifically for the asthma and last year with pneumonia and have been seeing a consultant regularly over the two year period resulting in various changes to medication. Have now got another chest infection which has impacted on the asthma. Been on steroids and antibiotics for a week as well as a couple of sessions on a nebuliser at local hospital.
It has been suggested that they may try Montelukast to help with my worsening asthma condition but other consultant has said it is only good for certain groups of sufferers where it is more allergy-related.
Anyone using this? Anyone got any further information?
