I'm new to the forum but have had asthma since being a teenager. About 23 years now. I started to get a cough a week and a half ago and was self treating and using my inhalers but it has gone to my chest. I went to my GP last Thursday and was given amoxicillin and prednisolone which I've been taking and now this is day 4 and I'm still not that much better. When I've had antibiotics and steroids before its only been about 3 days and I've felt almost back to normal. My peak flow is 290 today and my normal is around 450. My worst was 200 on the Thursday I went to docs but it seems to be improving but very slowly. Does this sound normal or should I be going back for a stronger inhaler until I am back to normal?
