See an internist: Medrol ; Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) are both cortisones. The inhaled one is safer ; preferable. Lisinopril is an ace inhibitor which causes cough in many people. You need to change from an ace to an arb as soon as possible. The arb is just as effective for BP without the cough. Avoid all smoke. Avoid cats. No cats in your home. No cat anywhere near you.

Do not stop...: I would not recommend stopping any of your medications unless specifically told by your doctor. The Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) is particularly important to keep your asthma under control. Asthma can definitely be a serious health condition that requires close monitoring. So please make sure to follow up with your doctor and follow her advice. All the best, ariel.
