My goodness you are on a lot of meds for your asthma! No wonder you are feeling low. So would I. I was feeling pretty rough over the weekend and feeling a bit sorry for myself. I'm getting my meds checked out tomorrow so not sure what they will suggest next. I'm on the symbicort too but was advised than when I started needing it 6 times or more a day they would have to think of something else. I have salbutamol too but none of it's hitting the spot. It was suggested when they put me on symbicort that if it didn't help I might end up on steroids. Not sure if they meant short or long term. Will know tomorrow for sure.


aww!!! hope you feel a little better soon xx

Asthma is horrible and days seem so long when you carnt get out.



Not surprised you feel low, that does sound a lot of meds. Hope you can get out and about soon, even if it's just a little walk. xx


No wonder youre fed up.

You must be going stir crazy by now.

Hope your health improves soon.

Oh hope you get free scrips too :)


I get the prescription pre payment certificate, well worth the cost, it pays for itself 20 times over !
