kim how long ago was your diagnosis? it sounds like you are having no luck in finding the right cocktail of drugs to control your asthma i am assuming they have you on pred what drugs are they using in a neb i have severe attacks like yourself and have been for for about 20 years but in between these spells i cope very well if they have only got u salbutamol nebs ask them to try you on the ipratropium ( atravent) salbuatamol mixture that works for me
