Mild symptoms, FloVent and control

Hey guys,

I've been on FloVent [2x250mcg twice a day] for about three and a half weeks, and I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow to get my perscription refilled and ask her a few questions.

Anyways, I'm still having pretty continuous, though mild, symptoms.
Is this normal? I'm not finding I have to use my Ventolin for it, it's more of an annoyance.

Any ideas of what she might do?

Thanks!

I don't think 3 weeks is long enough to get it under control. Obviosly it is helping some since you aren't having to use the rescue inhaler. Give it more time.

Re: Mild symptoms, FloVent and control

It can take several weeks to see any real differences. The fact that you aren't having ot use your resue inhaler is a positive change. She'll probably just keep you on your same regimen for a few more weeks before thinking about any changes to your meds.

Re: Mild symptoms, FloVent and control

Yup, that's basically what she said. She gave me two refills and said we'd up the dosage if it needed to be done later on.
