New member, first post.
I was first diagnosed with asthma in 2008. Ever since I started taking preventer inhalers (I'm now using Seretide 250) I've been sneezing constantly. 30-50 times a day. I'm also constantly full of mucus.
Before I was diagnosed, I was coughing all the time. Immediately after I started with preventers, the coughing stopped and the sneezing started.
Last week I was down with acute sinusitis and taking various things for it. Partly because of this, and because I kept forgetting, I wasn't taking Seretide at all, but using Salbutamol once a day if I felt I needed to. My sneezing stopped.
The sinusitis is much better and I'm now back on the seretide. My sneezing is back and I'm bunged up also.
I often find that once I wake up, before I do ANYTHING, I start a sneezing chain. The weird thing is that it doesn't matter if I wake up at 3am, 6am or 10am - once I've been awake for more than 5 minutes I start sneezing.
Could this be due to an allergy to seretide? If so what alternatives are there?
