Persisting cough with trouble breathing. Asthma suspected. Not responding to inhalers. What else to do?

Hi i have had a persistent cough for 20 weeks now i had a chest x ray last week and that came back clear. I ve had trouble breathing ever since then that will come and go, doctors think i may have asthma but the inhaler doesn t help with my breathing or coughing after ive used it. Just wondered if you could give me any alternatives as to what this might be thank you.
