How often is too often to use Albuterol?
I have been wondering if I'm using the inhaler too much. I was diagnosed a week and a half ago with bronchitis and seasonal asthma and was told to use the albuterol inhaler every four to six hours, one to two puffs. In the beginning, it wasn't even working. I couldn't breathe and it was awful. Now, my "cold" has gotten better but I still need the inhaler about two or three times a day. I feel like I've been relying on it too much. This whole asthma thing has me scared. I don't like not being ablt to breathe. I have a pulmonary test next week. I have the shortness of breath, like I can't get a good breath and sometimes when I inhale, it makes me cough. Why is that?
I just wonder if I'm relying on the inhaler too much. Anyone?
