You are taking only fenoterol which may not give very good control of asthma. You have to take combination of long acting beta agonist and long acting inhaled steroids like seroflo or seretide. Seretide is little better because of drug delivery technique. Beside this you should also take montair lc and doxyphyllin400 tablet twice a day. If you have acid reflux you should also take care of that.
