I'm trying to work out what step of the asthma treatment guidelines I'm on. I take symbicort 400/12 2 puffs twice daily, Montelukast and Salbutamol as and when required.
What bothers me is that despite being on the above for the last six months, my PF is still not back to my best and I am still more symptomatic than I would like, even though it has got lots better in the last couple of months.
I know it isn't 'bad' compared to lots of people but for me it feels like a lot of meds.
Also how successful have other people been in stepping their medication back down when it's been increased in the past?
I was meant to see the consultant in Feb but it's been put back to April - not sure why - so I will ask him then but wondered if people had any advice in the meantime.
