I have been asthmatic for many years, my medication is salbutamol ""Ventolin (Blue inhaler) and Beclometasone Clenil Modulate 200mcg per puff one puff twice a day.
I have the worst attack I can ever remember and am still suffering, I had a virus infection over 6 weeks back and got over it in a week or so, my asthma was, as usual, bad. This time it has not got any better, I saw the doc a couple of weeks back and he gave me Prednisolone 5 x 5mg a day. I know this is a lowish dose but it made me ill, I felt sick, dizzy and I had nightmares at night, not nice! I stopped the 5 day course after 3 days. It made no detectable difference to my asthma anyway.
I had a phone consultation a couple of days back and the doc advised me to take two puffs of the brown inhaler twice a day, that makes a total of 800mcg a day.
Is that OK? sounds like a lot to me. It does seem to be working though
