Re: Officially diagnosed

It's what is called a "rescue" inhaler for taking when you have an attack or flare (which you are having) or for premedicating before cardio for asthmatics. It is not to be taken in that manner indefinitely. If it is needed that often - after the flare or attack - it means the asthma is not under control. It raises your blood pressure and heart rate. So, once you get over this hurdle, find a doctor who is qualified to treat asthma and get proper evaluation and treatment. Seriously, I've had asthma for almost 2 decades. this if your life we are talking about. You need to be on proper meds if you actually have asthma. It is not curable; you will have it for the rest of your life.
