@A MyCOPDTeam Member I tried Spiriva, which helped with symptoms but made me cough non-stop. I also tried Wixela Inhub. That helped some, but I still had wheezing and bronchial spasms. My pulmonologist finally put me on Symbicort with a spacer; that did the trick. So keep tying. And as others have said, exercise is important. You may find that exercise--and everything really--is easier when your asthma is controlled.

Hi Debstein,
Many thanks for your reply. I am on one inhaler twice a day. Some days are better than others. The cold winter has not been very helpful, I am looking forward to warmer weather again. We can but try,

I wish you all the best and hope you are feeling ok.

I have asthma. It has been a challenge to get it under control. Some days i fel totally fine, and others not so good. The key is to pay attention to triggers. For me ANY smoke, even the neighbor smoking across the street, is sure to cause an attack. Perfumes and floral scents also do me in. And sometimes i have no idea what caused the attack. Finding the right meds is also key. If you are using your rescue inhaler several times a week, then your symtoms probably arent well managed. If your doctor prescribes a maintenance inhaler, be sure to learn to do it correctly. And if you are still symptomatic or have annoying side effects, dont be shy about speaking up. It can take sveral tries before you find the regime that works for you. And as others have said, find a good pulmonologist. Some PC docs don't want to refer, but hold your ground.
