  • Yeah go to the kitchen and boil a cup of watter add two table spoons of salt and inhale the steam it helps me a lot and i hope it helps you too :)
  • Carmella, I'm so sorry. My asthma is quite severe. Did you know that it's not good to use your inhaler closer together than every 4 hours? That can actually cause a "rebound effect" and encourage more frequent attacks. I agree with CG's suggestion to try steam. Also, try to limit your activity; climbing stairs and talking are big triggers for me. Do you take a maintenance drug for asthma? Perhaps it's time to ask the doc for a long-acting one. Here in the States, we have Singulair and Accolate. They belong to a class of drugs called monoleukast inhibitors. It may be worth asking about. I hope you can get some relief.
  • If you have to use your inhaler more than 3 times in one day you need to see a doctor. I have a nebulizer that helps for those times. Do you have one? If not you might need to go to the ER and have them hook you up to one and maybe some doses of prednisone. I hope you don't wait too long...please don't wait at all:) I have found from my own experience that when that happens it will not get better.
  • Please go to the ER, I have been there with babycakes and it scares me to death when she goes. I want to be there for her and I won't leave until she is ok. But sometimes she has to stay for days to get her breathing back to so call normal. Maybe your doctor could give you a nebulizer to keep at home. Is there someone that could take you? My prayers are with you. Please take care of yourself
  • First, I would suggest that you might want to seek help through the ER. Then When you have your follow up with your doctor, I would ask him/her if there were any way to change your medication regimen. THere are lots of different asthma drugs. Some, like Singular or Accolade can help you not have to take your inhailers so often. THen I would get busy cleaning your house hold filters and air ducts, vaccuming and shampooing your carpet, giving the pets a bath, and making sure your house is not letting in allergins through loose windows or ill hung doors.
  • I agree with everyone else. Don't overuse your inhaler go to the emergency room they can give you a breathing treatment it's helped me before.
