Hi I know we are not supposed to ask for medical advice on this forum but I would like some opinions.
I was started on SMART in September by a consultant at the hospital and by and large it has been ok. Previously, I was on Symbicort 400/12 which he considered too strong but was dealing with my symptoms. I now have a cold and would normally double my dose of preventer as a precaution but SMART doesn't work that way. I can take up to 12 puffs a day but would assume if I needed that much I should see a doc for rescue meds. It was never really explained to me how to deal with viral infections etc.
If anyone is on SMART what do they do in the event of a cold. Any advice gratefully recieved.
