Uncontrolled Asthma

I have been out of work for over a week now with asthma symptoms. It seems like a chest cold/infection spurred the whole thing, but that part is over and I still experience shortness of breath after doing simple activities. I am on prednisone, qvar, singular plus allegra for allergies and taking albuterol treatments 3-4 times daily. Has anyone shared a similar experience? how long did it take to gain control again?

Hi,

It sounds like you are doing just about everything you can. The only thing missing would be an antibiotic. I assume you have seen a doctor, but it may be time for another visit.

Take care and
God bless,
Sonya
