Coming off inhaled steroids

Hope you are all well

After having another asthma attack in June I was put on steroids - flixotide and this week I have come off them and been really grumpy and out of character only been taking about 100mg a day.

Also does anyone suffer from asthma when cutting down budleila - butterfly plant as it sends my asthma completely tizzy lol

I don't get why they are taking you off ics :-/ better to keep inflammation down than risk an attack!! I'd personally talk to gp and stay on them!


If you had an attack in June you should still be on inhaled steroids. I think the guidance says that inhaled steroids are recommended if had an attack in the last two years.

Everytime I walk past a buddleia I have to hold my breath so I don't breathe in the smell/pollen and get triggered.
