Suggest medication for asthma

i have been using 2 inhalers for over a month now for a rhino type pre asthma, (as per my doctor) I have coughed really hard for over 2 yrs and he is the only person that has stopped that. Anyway for over a week now I have developed a horseness when I talk and it doesn't hurt, but is a little irritated. should I be concerned? Is there anything I can do to prevent this? 5'6" 210 lbs. age 61 female

Hello
Since you are using inhalers and this provided relief in asthma . Now you are having hoarseness , this is irritating . Cough stopped after the use of inhalers. Hoarseness may be due to infection .
When such cases with these symptoms visit my clinic I prescribe them to take levofloxacin 750 mg once in day for 5-7 days with dextromethophan lonzges ( chew).
Instead of inhaler I advise my patient to take monteleukast+bambuterole tablet once or twice in day according to severity of disease ( cough and asthmatic attack).
Usually my patient don't require any inhaler with this medicine .
Since this is a prescription drug so consult your doctor .
Steam inhalation also provide relief .
Hot coffee is also useful in rhinitis .
Good luck.
