Asthma, dry non productive cough, on Prednisolone. Any advice?

Hello Dr. Grief,
I have regular bouts of Asthma and dry non productive cough, usually last 5- 6 days; after taking 6 tablets x 5mg x 3 days, then followed by 3 tablets x 5mg. x 4 days, I am back to normal. I have exhausted my current supply prescribed by my own British GP. Now that I travel to and from USA/UK I do not get much chance to see my British GP. Prednisolone 5mg is the only medication that relieves my illness; where can I buy Genuine Prednisolone 5mg. with out Doctors Prescription?

Hello,
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Directly coming to the point as you require prednisolone so this is known as WYSOLONE and available in USA .
Being as a doctor I would come up with this conclusion that this is the most dangerous drug for an asthmatic patient as regarding for long term use.
In my opinion you should not use this drug at all.
Your main complaint is dry hacking cough with asthmatic attack .
In such severe cases I usually prescribe Monteleukast+ bambuterol twice in day ( tablets).
You can use hot coffee as it will also help.
Steam inhalation will provide instant relief .
Chew ginger till relief.
Good luck. Dr. HET
