As many of you know i have been struggling to get my asthma under any sort of control for the last few years, i was referered to the RBH and did the difficult asthma protocal last year, i have had admission to hospital every month for the last 18 months and seem to be getting no where fast apart from loads of pred!!
anyway today went for an appointment at rbh and talked about further treatment plans for the future, i am going to go in for steroid reduction in august and then they mentioned amniophyllin, i am not sure how this is used and just wondered how it works, i think it was a rgular thing ( i have had it as an emergency thing in the past)
anyway i am rambling now the questions i have are:
has anyone done the steroid reduction thing as an inpatient and also why do they need to do the steroid wean first as i havent been below 20mg for 2 years which makes me think that maybe it is isnt that possible and then if they do manages to get it down as soon as i am back in my normal environment i will be subjected to all the normal triggers!!
secondly does anyone have any experience of the amniophyllin thing as i am intrigued how it works!!
sorry for all the questions just feel like i have come away not sure of anything!!
any informaion gratefully recieved
thanks in advance
