this is my first time using this app so I don't know how it completely works yet. does anyone struggle with their asthma in school. I use my rescue inhaler around twice a day in school. Walking to class can be hard at times, especially when it comes to stairs. Any thoughts?

      Hi! You aren’t the only one struggling. It have asthma caused by a number of things, exercise, allergies, weather, temperature and a few other things yet I got to a school in an old building with three flights of stairs T-T. But using my albuterol inhaler before I have to do big activities typically works. I also take deep slow breaths on stairs! I’ve talked to my school as well as my doctor about getting like an extra minute for passing period so I don’t have to rush and over exert myself. -ZYAIRE ^_^

      Stairs are an awful trigger for me too! I use albuterol as a rescue and before physical activities, plus QVar twice a day for long acting support

      Thanks for the advice. I do use simbacort for my rescue inhaler for when I do physical activities. But for school I use Albuterol.

      Hey! I had a hard time when I was in school too- it seems embarrassing to have to take your inhaler in between classes, but I found that no one cares! Having a regular schedule for your inhaler may help control spikes, but I would also consider a long-acting bronchodilator like Advair or Symbicort. Has your pulmonologist mentioned this to you?
