How often use nebulizer?

I forgot to ask this in an earlier post, so I'll ask it real quick right now: How often is "normal" to use a nebulizer? I use mine, with Duoneb, twice a day, for what my doctor terms "moderate to severe" asthma, along with Advair 500, Singulair, and Combivent (which I use when I'm away from my nebulizer). I also carry a rescue albuterol inhaler which I have not had to use since I started on the Duoneb. My peak flows, after treatments, are in the 440 range. I still have chest tightness on most days, but no other asthma symptoms. Am I "normal" in my use of the neb?

Re: How often use nebulizer?

I think, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, that you can use the nebulizer every 4 hours??? When I am sick, this is typically what I do. I'd say that if you are still having chest tightness you could use it more often (if possible). You'll know if you're taking too much. When I was using it more than I needed I felt nauseous and jumpy - don't know if those are common, but I backed it to every 6 hours and felt better.
