After 10 Years, Have seen asthma nurse at local practice for the first time, This was the start of May . Have been told how and when to use inhalers (So started taking 2 twice a day of beclocmethasone & Ventolin when needed). And guess what? Improvement, Good start. (As every time i see doc with chest infection ( 2 or 3 Times a year ) i keep being told just take Brown inhaler while on antibiotics and then stop).
At start of June Back to Nurse, Peek flow better but still down, and still using ventolin between 1 and 5 times a day. So changed to seretide 50 2 x twice a day &
Ventolin 100 when needed. After a week chest pains and problems breathing, Back to doc, using ventolin 5 times a day , So change inhalers yet again now on taking seretide 125 x2 twice a day / Ventolin 100 x2 when needed, Well that seems better but having problems at present. Back to see nurse a week on tuesday.
Sorry going on a bit, Can someone tell me is it common for doc to tell you to spot taking inhalers & how long might it take to get to reasonable amount of control
