Hi. I'm 52, and been asthmatic all my life. Got really bad after a persistent chest infection about seven years ago. Came close to having to give up work. Then my fab doctor prescribed Singulair which was life changing and stopped the hacking cough I'd had for five years. Still quite wheezy, and short of breath, but I could work. About a year ago was changed from Seretide to Flutiform, and that was the final piece in the jigsaw. From the first time I used it, all the tightness in my chest disappeared. No longer feel asthmatic to be honest. So now I take Singulair (not the generic, which actually triggers my asthma, and my GP has agreed that); Flutiform; Ventolin (rarely needed now) and Fexafenadine anti histamine. (I'm allergic to loads). With all that lot inside me, I'm good! Liz
