Am i taking to much ventolin ?

I am suffering with my asthma quite bad right now.

the docors in a&e said take as much ventlolinas you need.

my sthma nurse said, it can't harm you. but your limit is 10 puffs every 4 hours.

but just walkin up and down the stairs sets me off, and i need a puff,

i'm really bad with handling it,

i'm taking so much it's making me really weak, and i'm collapsing

it's making me bed-ridden,

but i'm taking so much,

but if i don't it brings on a severe attack, am i taking too much, help please.

thanks :)
