Hi all i am on my third lot of rescue steriods as i took the first lot wasnt enough but the drs didnt prescript more for another 4 days later as I push for it with the strong advice of the asthma uk nurses. Stop it again two days later as it set my blood sugar really high on the advice of my dr. He wanted to see if my blood sugar would go back down. Blood test fine. So back on again on monday 4 days on 40mg for 4 days then tapering down to 0 by day 7 or can take another couple of days on 40mg if i think i need it. Then taper down. The reason for more steriods this time is that i not still better and although i have now started a prentive one week today this should be working by now ie. Thats wad day 4. Still need my inhaler yesterday twice and once so far today as my peak flow is 350/425 this morning. Cold air is my trigger so yesterday when the temperature drop i got a bit wheezy. How long will it take fot my symptoms to settle down and because i had a gap between sterioid treatments does it mean that i am starting from zero with this lot? Thanks
