Sorry if this question has been asked and answered before, but since clenil is often used to treat cough an internet serach for this is not very easy!
I'm in the process of being diagnosed with asthma. I've been prescribed clenil, which I've been taking for the past 5 days. It seems to be helping although it hasn't yet raised my peak flow, which is what the nurse is expecting in order to confirm the diagnosis (early days, I know!) The thing is, when I take it I feel like coughing and it's quite hard to hold my breath in. Is this a common complaint? Is there anything I can do to help? The nurse checked my inhaler technique and told me to slow it down, which I have. I don't have this problem with ventolin, which I've used for the past couple of months. Cough is my main symptom, although I get wheezy and easily short of breath. Thanks for you help and ideas.
