I'm on Seretide 250 (2 puffs twice a day) I got cold symptoms so added in Flixotide 250 (2 puffs twice a day) as well as added regular Salbutamol & Atrovent. I'm already on Montelukast and started Prednisolone and antibiotics on the advice of my GP. 2 days later I had to go to A & E twice; sent home the first time after Salbutamol & Atrovent nebs then readmitted same evening for more neb and stayed for 2 nights on the ward. Peak flows were never terrible (70% approx )but the work of breathing was awful. Not sure why this was, I usually have drop in peak flow
Last admission was in February so I'm getting a little annoyed now; and worry about things like money and keeping my job if I'm off sick lots.
I'm already on quite a lot of medication which controls things as long as I don't have an infection but I absolutely lose control when I have an infection.
Anyone else have similar? What works for you?
