30 minutes?: Breo is designed to be used one puff per day, at one time. It should never be used for 30 minutes. It can cause a condition called paradoxical bronchospasm, which is very dangerous. The package insert says that if you become very breathless you should use your REGULAR quick relief inhalant and seek medical attention immediately. It is also possible to have an allergic reaction to Breo.

See a doctor: I suggest that you make an appointment to set your doctor. Symptom of breathlessness is not normal and needs evaluation.
