I have severe asthma, and am on quite a full range of med, salbutamol inhalers and nebs, pulmicort, oxis, monteleucast, bambuterol, prednisonlone (15mg maintainance), fexofenadine and uniphyllin. This combination seems to be working quite well at the the moment in keeping me relatively stable yey!
I also have anorexia and ave just been transfered to an in patient hospital in London to try and treat this and increase my weeight as its life threateningly low now.
However my promblem in I have just picked up a cold and my asthma is getting much worse, my PF gone from 300-450 to 160-300 and im much more symptomatic. If I were at home i would just increase my pred to 40mg for a week or until the cold had gone. But here im not in control of my medication and they won't do this normal increase in pred until they have spoken to my cons back home (4hrs from where i am now) They just dont seem to get it and was wanting any tips or advice on getting them to understand how important it is and how its affecting me. Im really scarred its going to end up in an admission that could have been avoided.
Any help much appreciated
