Re: Trying to wean symbicort for cough variant asthma

Thanks. Another question. When do people use their rescue inhalers. Since I don't wheeze I don't have a clear sense of whether there is a tolerable level of symptoms that don't need a rescue inhaler? For example coughing occasionally through the day. Right now my symptoms seem to be ramping up a bit but are still mild. I feel a little short of breath walking but it settles when I stop. As well I cough frequently but not uncontrollably through the day and don't have nighttime symptoms. I am taking my symbicort but don't really use the ventolin. Do others use their rescue inhaler for mild CVA symptoms?
