Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at HCM !

first of all you should see a good pulmonologist and get diagnosed correctly and know it is asthma and not something else.
Wysolone should not be taken haphazardly and for any cold, breathlessness. it is a steroid and has many side effects.

Asthmatics do better with inhaled bronchodilators and if needed inhaled steroid, which have less systemic effects.

Consider inhaled treatment (puffs from an inhaler) under guidance instead of wysolone tablet anytime.
weight gain , hair loss is due to wysolone overuse.

I hope you are fully satisfied with the guidance I gave.
I would be glad to answer any further queries.
Thank you and Good luck !

Welcome to HCM
If you have chronic asthma wysolone is not a medicine to be used when ever there is breathing problem,it is oral corticosteroid and used under supervision of Physician otherwise can have serious side effects.
You have already put on weight,which makes asthma worse.
Kindly see a Good Chest Physician and get evaluated by X ray chest blood test to know routine biochemistry and IgE level with Pulmonary function Test .
You will be advised inhalation therapy which is very good and you need to loose weght do it under supervision as indiscriminate use of steroid can make person to have adrenal suppresion which can have serious effect so also consult a Endocrinologist to withdraw steroid gradually
Do not take such drugs by your self.
Good luck to you
