I'm new on here although I have been asthmatic for at least 18 years and been plodding along ok until recently. For the last few months my asthma has worsened and my peak flow has been at the 240-260 mark which my gp put me on 7 days of prednisone and advised me to double up my seretide 250 accuhaler and keep a record of my peak flows. Now my peak flow for the first few days did increase to 360-380 but then went back down to 240.
I passed my peak flows in to my gp and the receptionist came to speak to me (I work in the same building) telling me to double up my seretide to which I answered I already had, she went back and spoke to doc who advised to take uniphyllin 300mg once a day if the doesn't work he'll refer me to a consultant.
Well my chest does feel a little better and peak flow now about 310 but I can't sleep!! I am managing a few hours but those are restless and filled with very strange dreams, is this normal???
