I would like to give a big thank you to the asthma nurses and Asthma UK for their invaluable support and advice. I rang them today as I am tight chested at the moment and my GP was reluctant to give me prednisolone as I was not wheezing but then let me have a course of 30 5mg tablets over 5 days.. The asthma nurse said that there are many asthmatics that don't wheeze and the current recommended dosage since 2006 is a course of 40 5mg tablets over 5 days. There is ""Grrr"" post further down which was very helpful also. Expert advice and support means a lot and it is nice to read posts from people in the same boat and to know that we are not alone with our symptoms that don't fit the norm!
