Too low: First Symbicort should be dosed at 2 puffs 2x daily and not 1 puff and thus your poor response. However if you are so short of breath, using the correct dose may not work fast enough and you need to contact your doctor who may prescribe a short course of cortisone to get you out of trouble. Don't delay. Go to ER if necessary.
