My husband has had asthma his whole life. He's been in and out of hospitals with pneumonia quite a few times. He's tried so many different treatments. He was just recently put on a newer steroid inhaler... and it's working!!! He no longer uses his ventolin several times per day. That has been reduced to a few times per week!!! It is fantastic!!! I'm so happy. :D
I just wanted to post this because my husband has been suffering with his asthma for so long he'd pretty much given up hope of ever finding real asthma relief. Don't ever give up!!! Just keep trying!!!

kmommy - that is wonderful news.

Can I ask - all the time that your husband has been trying treatments, has he been followed by an asthma specialist?

Oh, I love to hear positive news!!
We so often focus on the negative.
I agree, keep searching until you find the help you need. If they don't have a suitable treatment...some one needs to be at least working on one and that requires knowledge that one is required.
I refuse to accept a poor quality of life for myself or my loved ones.

My husband is actually being treated for his asthma by a G.P.
He is being treated for his eczema by a G.P. who also doubles as a naturalpath.
He hasn't been to see a specialist in years... I guess he had sort of given up (he's in his mid 40's and has been dealing with this stuff his entire life) until I really pushed him to try to find something that worked, especially with all the newer treatments that they are coming up with... and it worked!!! :D
