Thanks for your query.
Your words suggest you were having an upper respiratory tract
infection with respiratory distress
The antibiotic was prescribed to treat the infection considering it to be bacterial infection.I hope your doctor did throat swab culture sensitivity testing and some blood investigations.
Flovent , Dulera , Pro-Air all all were given to you to relieve the asthmatic symptoms.
Flovent contains fluticasone
. Dulera contains Mometasone + formoterol . Pro-Air contains salbutamol.
fluticasone and mometasone are steroids and their function is to decrease the inflammation. Salbutamol is short acting selective beta 2 agonist , it acts as bronchodilator
for shorter duration and relieves the respiratory distress.
Formoterol is a long acting beta 2 agonist , acts as bronchodilator for longer duration.
The fluticasone nasal spray
was given to you for your nasal congestion
So you can see all these medicines have their own actions.
If you are having wheezing and respiratory distress all day long then its better to shift to fluticasone + formoterol inhalation twice daily and use salbutamol inhalation on emergency basis during the asthmatic attacks.Antibiotics are to be used if there is infection which will be diagnosed by your treating doctor.
Hope this helps.
Update here how you stay.
