Please consult a asthma specialist. The failure to control may be due to GERD not getting controlled/ improper inhaler technique/other cause of wheezing etc

ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response
Hi Roy,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
You need to consult your pulmonologist to find out what exactly has gone wrong and change the medications if required. I am sorry, it is indeed difficult to prescribe medicine on the net without thorough examination.
Take care
