Pulmonologist 's  Response
You seem to be suffering from chronic persistent asthma. You have not mentioned whether you are taking oral steroids-omnacortil in your case on a regular basis.Long term oral steroids have many side effects and should be avoided. You should take inhalers regularly. Take Seretide-500 or Forrmonide-400 twice a day, duolin/combimist 2 puffs 3 to 4 times a day. Technique of inhalation should be correct so that the medicine is not wasted. Nebulization with asthalin or budecort solution on SOS basis can be taken.Take Doxyphyllin 400 mgm BD amd Montair LC at night. You have to take an antiacid like Ocid or Pan 40.. You may take Bromhexin cough syrup or ambroxyl to loosen the sputum so that it comes out easily. Avoid dusty and smoky atmosphere and drastic changes in temperature. Avoid junk food and artificial flavours and colouring agents. Pranayam and deep breathing exercises and weight control will help.

General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response
Asthma can be efficiently managed if treated properly.
You must contact a pulmonologist ( lung specialist),get all the pulmonary function tests done and then take the treatment.
There is no point taking the medicines,the way it has been prescribed to you.
