Hi, Blue.

When I was first diagnosed, the dr. gave me Aerobid (corticosteroid) as well as the Proventil (rescue inhaler). I was still using the Proventil every day (not good), even while I was on the Aerobid. He took me off the Aerobid and put me on Singulair. The Singulair worked well for a couple of months, then back to using the Proventil every day. He left me on the Singulair but added Advair. What a difference!!! I've been on that combination for at least 6 months now. I've probably used the Proventil once since I started the Advair. Advair has been such a life saver for me. I love it!

My doctor said that adult-onset asthma can be difficult to control. Just keep going back to your doctor until you find the right drug or combination of drugs for you. You have every right to expect to have symptom free days.
