Hi. I saw a consultant about 6 weeks ago that said to change to symbicort 2 puffs BD for a month and if my asthma was not well controlled to introduce montelukast. The GP has issued the prescription for montelukast anyway, but I've not had a review as I'm waiting for the referral hospital appointment (will now be seen by the team there rather than GP practice). Well, with the weather improving, my asthma is ok, but now suffering with rhinitis and wonder whether the montelukast might have an effect there? Also using a nasal spray (nasonex) and cetirizine, both help but are not fully controlling symptoms.
