On a regular day I take 10mg of prednisone twice a day [morning and night], as well as multiple other medications for my asthma. Today [because of a pending snow storm and a small one last night] my asthma has been extremely bad. Early this morning I was at the emergency room, but was sent home after about 8 hours [I have a nebulizer at home and was given a few treatments and an adrenaline shot earlier today]. I got home this morning around 10a, and since then have used the nebulizer twice. I’ve taken the prednisone as directed, as well as the other medications, but I won’t "clear". I still have the wheezing, rattling, etc. Right now I’m short of breathe, but not full out asthma attack [yet at leastt]. I was wondering if I took another 10mg prednisone would that help until I get to the hospital [which will be another hour or so since we got snow earlier and my husband needs to shovel before we can leave]. They’re going to give me prednisone anyway, so could I just take the extra now and tell them when we get there?
Also, if it matters: I am on: prednison 10mg, albuterol sulfate .083%, advair 500/50, cingulair 20mg, cetrizine 10mg, flovent 220mcg and the albuterol inhaler. As well as many others, but this is just the asthma medications.
We’re at the hospital now =D I’m on my cell. We had to shovel to get out lol. To much snow to find the car.
