I've had asthma since 2008 and it is not normal asthma - relievers don't help and airs, allergys set me off so I avoid grass my main allergy like the plague so summers not much fun!
I was finally diagnosed with brittle asthma over a year ago, I thought my asthma was under control and then what like a tonne of bricks a chest infection has appeared just in time for my trip to barcelona on Sunday!
I was at the dr yesterday and I've been prescribed clarithamycin for 7 days and 30mg steroids for 7 days thankfully my peak glow was still ok, but like my dr said as soon as I feel something I need to get in and get antibiotics
My question is I usually only take 30mg for 5 days should I do the 7 days or reduce to 20mg has anyone done this
The steroids work but I really don't sleep when I'm on them and I just end up worn out for weeks after - any tips?!
Thanks in advance
