about a week ago I got that bad cold thats going around. My asthma flares every time I get a cold. I went to my Dr. he put me on antibiotics and 60 mg of pred and has me tapering 10 mg every 5 days. In addition I am using my nebulizer, asmanex, and singulair. I called my pulmomologist on Friday since every time I breathe I wheeze. He put me on tussinex cough syrup. That at least has helped me to sleep but I am still wheezing what can I do?
