HI Lemere

Welcome to the group.

I take prednisone right now for a flare up.

Also take albuterol, and asmanex.

And in the nebulizer I take pulmicort, albuterol and atrovent.

I do not like advair - it makes my symptoms escalate.

hugs

Hi Shockme. Oh my gosh...that is a very long time. I'm a junior for asthma.
