Hi Lee,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
Your doctor has advised very suitable medicines for her, the inhales corticosteroids are in very small amount and do not have adverse effect on lungs or body.
You should take the vaccine which would prevent pneumonia and respiratory tract related exacerbations and start the medicines, they will provide her great relief. Remain in the regular follow up.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
