What thing finally helps when our asthma is bad?

Maddie has been rough for 4 wks now. Up most nights, needing loads of ventolin during the day etc. She's had antibs for an infection. And now finally they have agreed to increase her pred for a few days. This always has good effect. Finally a light is at the end of the tunnel!

What helps you when you're struggling?? Nothing else seems to help here other than pred.

So sorry to hear Maddie is still suffering!!

For me pred, salbutamol nebs and the alternate atrovemt nebs work.l for me on a little flare up...andthing more than that though and im in hospital having iv's

Hope Maddie gets better soon...sending a virtual hug to you all!!



Sorry to hear you and maddie are still struggling! 4 weeks is a long time!

I'm the same ... If I'm going downhill the only thing that has a hope of working is a full whack of 40mg pred ... Usually for atleast a week/10 days to calm things down. Otherwise like Charlie I tend to end up in hospital needing further treatment.

I hope the increase in pred does the trick and the both of you can get some relief!
