Today I had a bad attack and had go to the walk in centre as was near by it.
The doc sounded my chest and said was very weezy and put me back on pred.
she asked me how much salbutamol I had had to relieve it ,I said 8/10 puffs ,she told me
never take more than 3 as it would just make me shakey and wouldnt work any better and give me pred.
My husband and me were confused as our own doctor and my asthma nurse and the AnE said could
take 10/12 puffs of my easyhaler 200 as a neb when got in to diffaculties till got help.
It was a elderly doc but as she said dont take more than 3 puffs it would be like giving an
asmatic just 3 mouthfulls of air and no way enough to help a big asthma attack like today.
What are your views on this matter ? xxxx
edit- asthma still bad and breathing not good but will go the AnE If doesnt settle to go on nebs xxx
