Brief Answer:
Was she having pulmonary tuberculosis?

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Instead of Asthalin, better to take duolin.
Asthalin is having salbutamol. Duolin is having levosalbutamol and ipratropium (dual bronchodilator). It is better than Asthalin.
Give duolin four times a day and budecort twice daily.
