Hi, new member, now 59 I had my first experience with asthma at age 40, but had sinus problems and allergies most of my life. This year has been my worst for asthma and I've just finished a 4 week course of Prednisone that didn't alleviate my breathing difficulties (I also take Advair). Has anyone else had a lack of success with Prednisone? Are there alternatives? The Prednisone side effects are unpleasant. I also recently bought a Peak Flow Monitor but my readings are always in the high normal range even though my asthma symptoms are present. Just wondering what others' exeriences have been.
Thanks, good to know there's a forum like this.
