Hello out there. I need advice. In my 3rd week of feeling out of breath, tired and absolutely fed up! But my question is this. I have been coughing lots today and was about to go into a meeting so thought I should take my Ventolin. I have to say it helped. My question is this though. Sometimes after I take my Ventolin the relief lasts about for only a minute and then I start coughing again. Is it not working or should I take more? I find it difficult to know when to take it. Do I take it as soon as my chest gets tight, when I get out of breath or when I start coughing?
