Dear Deanna Rosenberg,
The medicines prescribed by your Doctor are correct.
is caused due to broncho-constriction (obstruction of smaller airway passages) which is indicative of Hyper-responsiveness of air passages (seasonal allergy
So...please continue the medicines as advised.
They will provide symptomatic relief by reducing the inflammation & causing broncho-dilation (dilating the smaller airway passages, relieving the obstruction & increasing airflow to lungs)
Make sure that the dose of prednisone
is gradually tapered and not stopped abruptly.
You can also take Montelukast
preparation during this time of the year.
Montelukast is used as a maintenance therapy to relieve symptoms of seasonal allergies & asthma by reducing broncho-constriction.
There is no need to worry...just make sure that you are well protected from the cold.
Wishing you a healthy life & a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.
