Well I seem to have recovered from my bad do in November - preds for the first time ever, shaking on salbutomol, everlasting chest infection and I was advised to stay on my beclazone preventer. Howver, I just couldnt, it gave me really bad headaches and the taste even with a spacer made me heave.
Since then , I have been on 2 puffs of seretide am and pm and have felt better than ever, hardly ever needing my reliever. I cant work out if this is due to getting over the hidious chest infection or the new treatment. Has anyone any experience of this?
I would love to come off any sort of preventer again but am not sure that I have to confidence to in case it all kicks off again. I think I am on the middle dose of seretide (purple) - how lazy am I but it is upstairs and I am downstairs and cant be bothered to go and look at the actual dose!!!
I was diagnosed at 10 and this is the first time I have ever felt apprehensive about not taking stuff - I was the classic sportsmad kid who hid inhalers at school so nobody knew (lol - I am not much better now as a PE teacher although kids I teach with asthma like to hear that I have it to and think that it is kind of cool that I have an inhaler in my pocket too!)
I just dont want to be back going through ventalins at a rate of knots againor not able to breathe like I felt in November as it was really scary but dont want to be taking stuff unnecessarily
