im 17 and being dianosed with asthma
i went to my doctor for a 3rd visit and she said because my peak flow was not very changable morning to evening but very day to day she would like to put me on a preventor inhaler. this has steroids in it doesent it ? also my friend shave almost become addiced to hers she is constantly using it more then her recomendid usage this is bad isent it?
i said ould we leave it for a it till then and she said if thats what i felt comfortable with that was ok. im still using my blue releaver inhaler. it workes ok it takes time and up to 4 puffs to make me feal much much better.
she said to measure the change in peak flow before and after inhaler use and i have notised i imporve from 20 to 60 points depending on how many puffs i take and how bad im feeling.
she also said if u use the inhaler more then 30 times over a 5 week period she would again consider putting me on the brown preventor inhaler and i have puffes about 29 times and due to see her again in 4 days time. i was wondering if there was anything else i could consider instead of going on this inhaler because i have not been diagnosed with asthma fully yet but shes just changing dossage of medication.
any ideas would be greatly receved
