Just after a bit of advice. I finished a 5 day course of prednisolone yesterday in the hope of bringing my newly diagnosed asthma under control. It did a great job after the 2nd or 3rd day bringing my peak flow up and steady and my blue inhaler usage down. The only thing is already my peak flow is dropping today and I've used my blue inhaler a fair bit. What should I do? Does the effects of oral steroids drop off this quickly? I have another appointment with the asthma nurse on Thursday, should I wait until then?
