Hi i've just registered on here thought it would be a good place to get some advice, I've had 6 hospital admissions this year with my asthma, i got out of hospital on monday from my latest one.
I've been given new inhalers, Fostair and Spiriva, and i'm back reducing my steroids from 40mg to my normal maintenance dose of 10mg.
Ive been seeing my consultant in clinic and they are talking about starting on immune suppressnt drugs (Azathioprine or omalizumab if I qualify) to try and help me get off the perdnisolone, (cushings problems)
I'm seeing my consultant in clinic in 2 weeks, and then i've a referral to the North west Lung Centre for january which i'm guessing is taking on the treatment side.
I'm not too sure what to do, try it with new inhalers or go for these new drugs, desperate to get well and get my life back.
Any advice would be appreciated.
