need to see pulm: If having to use Albuterol several times a week may need to be on inhaled Steroid.One other option to add Singular.Are your FEV peak flows good?If that ineffective may need a med like Breo _steroid with ultralong bronchodilator.May need to ask primary to refer to Pulmonary or allergist.Also if having Reflux that needs to be controlled first and usually helps the asthma by 50%.
