i have been on steroid inhalers for two years for my asthma. i'm on a trial period of coming off the steroid inhaler. i was told if the trial was not working for me to go back onto them.

i was coping pretty well for about a week but for the last four or five days ive woken every nite coughin, wheezing, tight chest etc. i had an attack yest2day. have 2 take my rescue inhaler about 4 times a day. my chest is now constantly bad, and i am quite a wheezy person anyway but now ive come off that i am wheezing even more, all the time and my chest is super tight.

is this a normal reaction to stopping steroid treatment which will eventually stop, or should i take my steroids again? i dont wanna just take them if this is normal lung behavior!!

  • Do you have a blue inhaler? Take that to stop your wheezing and breathing difficulties.

  • Hey! Do you have a pet in the house? A cat perhaps, maybe you're an allergic. Why don't you try seretide (diskus), it really works for me. Maybe for you too! Good luck!
