Hi, hope it's OK to ask this.
I recently changed from relvar 184 1 puff od to fostair 200 2 puffs bd as my asthma wasn't well controlled following having covid 6 weeks ago.
My peak flows had gone back to my usual of 450 and my cough had improved.
This week I've picked up another respiratory virus and my cough has been pretty constant and keeping me up all night. Spoke to GP yday as my peak flow had dropped to 350 (now 320) and I was worried the virus has affected my asthma. I only got diagnosed with asthma a few months ago so it's all a bit new!
She suggested taking an extra dose of my fostair 200 as a reliever instead of ventolin if the cough was bad, but reading all the info about fostair, it suggests this is only if on fostair 100 and that the 200 is max dose of 2 puffs bd.
Does anyone else take extra fostair 200 when ill? Is it safe or should I stick with ventolin?
