Steroids for asthma: ...Are very unlikely to do you any harm, especially at that dose and for short period of time. You need to get help for the heroin habit, which is harmful with or without steroids. Stop killing yourself, and get help. Your asthma needs to be controlled, but your heroin habit is a greater threat to your survival.
