So, I've been on my new immune treatment for about 2 months now ramping up to my full dose. And it seems to have changed my asthma! The new treatment seems to be working – the effect should be that opportunistic bacteria can't take hold and cause the long exacerbations I normally get requiring pred and antibiotics. My allergies are off.the.charts at the moment! But so far, it's a running nose and sneezing and not building into a sinus infection. So YAY!
I'm still getting short attacks, but so far not spiraling out into a flare. I had a chemical/scent exacerbation that has lingered a little, but I think because all the coughing irritated my throat and lungs so much. Then allergies have kept things irritated. I have high hopes that things will continue to get better. Now I'm starting to feel like I might be on too many meds – particularly the mucus drying ones. I have a follow up in November w/ the doc, so will just do status quo til then.
Has anyone else had triggers removed that changed their asthma? Did it make a big impact or just marginal? Did your doc adjust your controller meds?
