Hello Mariam

Thanks for choosing our forum

I have read your concerns and i would like you to add a few details on the treatment you are taking for asthma. I would like to recommend you a spirometry and a morning-evening PEFR monitoring to assess the nature of your problem. You should consult a chest specialist for this, may be you need more prompt treatment with inhalers or the dose of your existing treatment needs to be revised.
Also, i would like to tell you that asthma requires a lifelong treatment and only with proper and regular treatment, it is possible to decrease your drugs or dose, so please take your drugs regularly. Avoid dust, pollens and smoke as it worsens asthma

wish you a good health
