Question is related to
Pulmonologist 's  Response
thanks for sharing ur problem
u need to consider the following
1. is there any night episode of breathlessness to disturb ur sleep at night???
2. is this symptom hampering ur activities in ur day to day life???
3. recently were u on inhalers???
i think ur ans will be no to above qns
do a recent pulmonary function testing with bronchodialator reversibility
u can use asthalin now as there is a dose 2 puffs four times daily and stop using it when not required
use becalate rotahaler 1 rotacap bd dose
but u have to have good assessment of ur asthma
needed to see whether ur asthma is controlled or partially controlled or not
u go through this medication
but u soon consult a pulmonologist soon
because better to control ur asthma than to manage its exacerbation
i think u got my point
thank u

Thanks for writing to us.
Since you are known asthmatic, asthalin inhaler is used to relieve acute symptoms and to prevent the recurrence, Becalate rotahaler is recommended for its anti inflammatory role. Asthalin inhaler s usually advised to be taken on as and when needed basis and Becalate rotahaler can be taken twice daily- one rotacap each time.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
