Regular Mucus of a Morning

Hi all,

First post here. I'm 22 and the last few years I have experienced regular wheezing and always seem to pick up a chest infection. Sometimes it feels infected and sore, whereas sometimes its just white mucus that doesn't seem infected. Just a nuisance but once coughed up I'm fine for the day.

I take:

2 Puffs of Seretide 125ml Twice a day (Volumatic)

Ventolin (if needed)

Throughout this time I have been on steroids that obviously help if I'm feeling particularly bad, and I went through a phase of taking one montelukast every night that helped my peak flow increase over time and it did help.

I have came off the montelukast the last few months and seem to be experiencing a bit of a wheeze again. Nothing too drastic, but its there.

a) Do you think I need the Montelukast again?

b) Are there any side effects of montelukast?

c) How much of an impact does a dusty bedroom have? (I am probably guilty of this!)

well, if you felt better on the montelukast it's probably worth going back on it! There arent nasty long ter side effects, if you were on it for more than a few weeks you'll know if you exerienced and side effects (its not like pred which can have side effects you dont really notice if you're on it for a long time!) Why did you come off the montelukast?

Dusty bedroom - it depends if you're allergic to dust mites! lol!
