How long have some of you been on prednisilone? Years?
Sadly it's looking increasingly likely I will be taking it long term because inhaled steroids simply have little or no effect. The doctors have expressed concern about the long term side effects but I have little option - without them I would almost certainly end up in hospital- difficult to control adult onset asthma has a much greater risk of morbidity. I would appear to be in the 5 - 10% range with difficult to control asthma.
I had to go to my GP last week because I was very poorly - I blew 200 then 250 before being put on a nebuliser. The doctor prescribed more steroids.
I am resigning myself to the fact that eventually this will probably see me off .
