Im really fed up at the mo. ive been bad with my asthma since well before christmas, following a cold/ chest infection. dr says chest is now clear but my peak flow is still 100 lower than normal and im more breathless than i should be. I have had 2 short courses of pred this year which have made a difference while im on them but as soon as i stop, im back to normal again. my dr (a new one - moved recently) seems absolutely useless and all he wants to do is keep giving silly courses of pred. please can someone tell me if this is right? i would have thought that he should now be thinking of something more long term??? thanks
