Hello ,I have a couple of questions for you.
1. Are you a smoker,? And are you still smoking?.
2. Are you working in a smokey or dusty atmosphere?
3. Do you live in an inner city pollution type a Real?
Once you have had an exacerbation, it does seem that they follow on one after the other. After moving areas and going to a different GP , he decided to change my anti biotic, put me on a double dose, and change the dosage of prednisolone to the old "long method" of 40mg for 5 days, then 35mg for 5 days, 30mg, 25mg etc etc. Only this method works for me.
I find that the 40mg for 5 days then stop does me no good whatsoever. In my opinion you need to see you chest specialist GP or a consultant and explain to them your thoughts. Are you seeing a respiratory nurse at your GP 's ?
Whatever you do DO NOT gamble with your health by stopping medicines. Best of luck. Chris
