Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Asthalin inhalors only relieve asthma that caused by bronchospasm or pneumonia etc. But it won't useful in patients who are suffering from nasal block or turbinate hypertrophy etc. Use water vapor inhalation and salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. Use antibiotics, expectorants in case of productive cough. Avoid cool'drinks and freeze water, avoid smoking and caffeine drinks. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am a patient of Asthma and am taking 2 puffs of Asthalin Inhaler each time in Morning and night. For last 2-3 days i am feeling breathless more often and have also started coughing a bit (may be sudden change of weather from Summer to Winters). I have increased the frequency of inhaler but not much of a help. Now i am taking Asthalin inhaler almost after every 3 hours. 2 hours before i have started a pill of Deriphylline Retard 300 and am thinking of repeating after 12 hours (before sleep). Kindly advise if this medicine will help me in improving my help?
