Asthma Treatment

Still sick after 2 months

  • By mattdavis

    I’ve been on 2 steirod treatments, 3 aintibiotics and inhalers and I’m still congested. It will be Feb before I can see a pulmonologist. Any ideas on treatment?

    Hi mattdavis and thanks for your post. While we cannot provide medical advice or diagnostics over the internet (for your own safety), your concerns certainly warrant a comment. It can be a genuine challenge when you feel your medication regimen and treatment plan aren’t providing you with as much relief as you expect. I would suggest you reach out to the physician’s office and explain your situation – see if you cannot get your appointment moved up somewhat. If that does not work, do you think your primary physician would be able to help you?
    Please check back and let us know how you’re doing.
    All the best, Leon (site moderator)
