Call or go to ER: Don't ignore asthma, can be a deadly mistake. Call a doctor that has treated you in the past in order to get medication to bridge to the appointment. This may be possible depending on circumstances. Otherwise, go to urgent care or to the ED. Using expired medication may be life saving in certain circumstances, but no substitute for an evaluation by a physician and up to date planning.
