Good evening to everyone,
Hope everyone is well and it is not to hot that it is affecting your asthma to badly.
I am going back to my asthma doctor at the end of next month to discuss my asthma again as it is still up and down, I have had to have at least one course of pred every month since December and my peak flow is still up and down.
My current medications are:
Here is a list of my current medication as I am not just not on meds for asthma.
Salbutamol Breath- Actuated Inhaler -2 puffs as required
Fluticasone and Salmeterol Cfc- Free Inhaler 250 - two puffs twice a day
I take this inhaler with a spacer
Montelukast Sodium Tablets 10mg
One to be taken daily
Prednisolone when needed
Epilim Chrono M/R Tablets 500mg
One to be taken at night
Epilim Chrono M/R Tablets 200mg
One to be taken each morning
Fexofenadine HCL 120mg tablets
one to be taken in the morning
Azelastine 0.05% Eye Drops
Put one drop three times a day
But the doctor did say that asthma has been uncontrolled for quite sometime and he thinks it is about time that I had my meds adjusted to see if it could be better controlled.
He said he could try me on symbicort instead of seretide but I know none thing about this inhaler
the second option was to try me on fostair but the are a number of side affects so he did not think this was a good option for me.
the third option was to keep me on pred which I do not want to be on pred full-time due to weight gain and I am not to good at eating breakfast.
I do not much about the different inhalers and what ones are best. I understand that some inhaler work better for some and not so well for others.
Does anyone have any ideas what I should try?
I do have an asthma management plan which I stick to but I just want my asthma to be under control once more.
Thank you for reading my post I look forward to your replies.
