went to the GP today to change the reliever im using back to salbutamol (bricanyl makes me really shakey etc.) while i was there she was talking about whether i needed a long acting reliever or another steriod inhaler or something to keep me under control. she asked me how often i was using it and currently im using it every other day at least (and then it usually takes a while to get my breathing right) and she said that that was fine and so i didnt need to change anything. i know a lot of people on here have little or no controll on there asthma and i do consider myself lucky, I just thought you were supposed to be aming for completely symptom free? thanks for any advice etc.
