Thanks for posting your query.
Asthalin contains salbutamol which is a short acting bronchodilator and its action persist for only for 1-1 and 1/2 hours.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ chest physician and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for complete blood count, absolute eosinophil count, chest x ray and erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
You should take combihale containing budesonide, a low potent steroid for a short period.
You should take long acting beta agonist such as formoterol or albuterol for persistent long effect.
You should also take antiallergic levecetrizine along with montelukast.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
