No waste: Ideally you should not be using your saba more than 2 times a week if asthma is controlled, so obviously is not, you need a maintenance medication. Call your doctor!

Yes: Doctors are professionals trained to evaluate and treat your health problems. Part of thisis diagnosing the problem, managing the treatment and watching fo response to treatment. An saba generally should not ne used more than twice a week as a routine (there are times you are sick and may need it several times a day). It does not treat asthma, only relieves symptoms for a short time.
