You are using albuterol
in the form of ventolin
inhaler which is a short-acting broncho-dialator which is giving you relief. Please do continue that. But with that a inhaled corticosteroid-long-acting beta2 agonist combination should be started on like formeterol-budesonide
combination for better control of your asthma symptoms. As per response you may have to step up or step down your asthma therapy. Please consult a pulmonologist
and make a peak-flow chart by using peak-flow meter for self monitoring of your asthma symptoms.
