I've moved from orange (two puffs a day) to orange (4 puffs a day) to purple (two puffs a day) which is Flutacasone/Salmet. My peak flow readings have improved through this journey and I am now averaging around about 420/430 a day. However, I am still very short of breath after a short burst of exercise. I also still have a degree of fluid/phlegm on my chest in the mornings. As I'm fairly new to all of this, is this to be expected or am I missing something here? I'm due to see my consultant again end of Feb, but any experiences/knowledge would be appreciated in the meantime.
