Good news then glynis..so sorry....didn't realise you'd been in hospital with your asthma. Very unusual to have to do slow reduction with rescue steroids anyway.

Great they've put you on 6 monthly reviews.

Goodness....didn't know you had severe asthma Glynis?

Yes dont need a nebuliser as my easyhaler 200 works great for me as a neb when need to multi dose 10 puffs 4 hourly.

think we need to define what severe asthma is here, as it seems to cover a multitude of levels.
