Hi everyone! I am a new newbie! New to this forum and new to finding out I have moderate asthma/ possibly copd. I'm 46 and after a recent er visit, was surprised to find out that I have a respitory issue that I probably have had for quite some time. My doc has me taking a daily inhaler of qvar and of course I have the rescue inhaler.. But all of this came without instruction.. Lol so I'm trying to figure out, when to use the rescue inhaler? I'm not sure if I'm using it too much or too little? Should I have a spacer for the qvar? The more I read online the more questions I get.. Lol when I went to my last visit he gave me a peak flow meter.. And I am hanging out at 250. And even though I have been on qvar daily for 6 weeks now, it hasn't changed. Is that normal? Or are my numbers supposed to go up with treatment?does it mean that it might not be asthma and probably is copd? Sorry for the million questions.. Lol
