Re: Can't stop coughing
For asthma, one should be using a preventer inhaler as well (usually a steroid)....I use Pulmicort turbuhaler, the 200mcg one. Two puffs twice a day and when I get a cold I double the dosage to 4 puffs twice a day.
The reason, to help deal with the inflammation and keep it down, then use the rescue inhaler when I need it.
You definitely need to be assessed again, and if you are having asthma induced coughing caused by the cold, the steroid inhaler will help.
As well, when I have a cold, I use Oxeze, which is a long-lasting brohchodilator...I go off it when I can go the 12 hours without feeling upper chest tightness.
Are you coughing up anything productive?
It's all a matter of perspective!
