Hi hope all is well with you all.
During an asthma flare up which started 12 days ago I was given 5 days prednisolone 40mg daily and another inhaler (Atrovent and then replaced by Spiriva a week later). I normally need a 2 courses of steroids and step down to sort out the problem, but as I’ve had too many over the last 6 months the nurse decided to give me 5 days worth of pred and then step down by 1 every other day.
This morning is the second day of 20mg and I’m still short of breath. I also woke in the night with a cough and had to take ventolin (I don’t generally have night time symptoms). Should I just continue with the treatment and hope at some point either the pred or the Spiriva will work or should I take ventolin every 4 hrs to tide me over until I start to improve? 🤷🏻♀️I’m not due to speak to the nurse for just over a week. Thanks 😊
