I've had another rough week with my asthma, managed to persuade my GP I didn't need hospitalising on Monday, but hes had me back in the surgery everyday this week to check my oxygen sats and to see how I've been doing. Fortunatly I'm much better now, so going to start decreasing my 60mg of pred down tomorrow.
My asthma is out of control, and I'm desperate to try and get some control back, and get a good nights sleep! I've been in and out of hospital a fair bit in the last year and I'm starting to get fed up.I was wondering if anyone knowes what the next step for me will be? as my GP didn't seem to have any ideas. At the moment my meds are; Seretide 250 2puffs twice a day, montelukast 10mg at night, uniphyillin twice a day, pred between 25-60 (and calci chew), salbutomol, and salbutomol nebs. I've tried symbricort which didn't work for me and cetrizine 10mg which gave me a bad rash so was taken off it, and I don't know whats happening with Xolair as I don't think my ige levels are high enough to qualify for it. Is there anything else I could try?
thank you ally xx
