I've been taking inhaled corticosteroids twice daily and I'm still having problems with asthma...recently my Dr. increased my Advair discus from 250/50 to 500/50 and it's still not under control. In between, I was on Combivent, which didn't work and then a pulmonologist put me on Spirva (sp?) and it, too didn't work...so I'm seeing a new pulmonologist (insurance thing) and we'll see what happens with this appt. Apparently they are not so willing to give out the Kenalog (steroid) injections as much as before, due to a problem that can occur with your bones. My PFT's showed up mild emphysema, asthma and something else...so I'll keep you posted!!
