Thanks for your query.

These medications are very helpful and effective for treating asthma.
The cause of poor response to therapy is most likely due to improper inhalation technique.It would be better if you use spacer with inhaler for adequate delivery of medicines.Again,you have to avoid triggers like cold,dust etc.

So my suggestion is :please meet your treating doctor to show him the inhalation technique and for follow up.

Hope this will help you.
Wish you good health.
