I was admitted to hospital on 2nd March with an asthma attack. Discharged with 40mg prednisolone for 7 days, then tapering down at a reduction of 5mg for 3 days at a time. On Monday I returned to work and started with yet another chest infection. Started antibiotics straight away and GP increased steroids to 20mg. On Thursday peak flow had dropped to same as when admitted to hospital. Pred up to 40mg a day. Peak flow is still same and I feel short of breath. Hubby says it takes time but I don't think it's take this long to improve before. Not sure what's best to do.
