STOP!!!: You need to go to the emergency room or call your doctor.Very dangerous to take your proair every hour with your nebulizer (hopefully it is not a bronchodilator) .If it is, you are overdosing yourself and making yourself sicker.If you are that tight you need steroids to help decrease the swelling in your lungs.Good that you are coughing up the mucus but using proair every hour is a no no!
