After a long time with asthma I have been doing better these last few months my doctor asked if I wanted to stop medication and only have a emergency inhaler. When should I stop it?

      Hi just read your post that's really good that your Asthma is well controlled but I wouldn't recommend stopping because the reason it's so stable is because of the medication what strength is yours mine is 200 of clenil modulite 2 puffs in morning and night. Take care 🤗

      If your medication comes in a lower dose, I’d suggest going down to that first just for a bit and seeing how your lungs react, considering the type of problem asthma is. Unfortunately, asthma doesn’t necessarily go away for good, but it does go into remission where just an emergency inhaler is fine. Depending on your asthma triggers, it’s possible to avoid flare-ups once it goes into remission, but that’s dependent on controlling your exposure to them. I know someone whose asthma has been fine for 20+ years because of that. Regardless, I’m happy your asthma has been better! I think it’s worth a shot to see how stopping the medication works out. But I do think it would be good to hold on to what you have left for a little while in case you need to go back on it suddenly.
