Not the medication: Something (eg. Viral infection, post nasal drip, smog, acid reflux) is triggering your asthma. Its presence will continue to trigger the attack.

When i run my lungs burn & sometimes i taste blood. I've spat up blood before. I have asthma but my inhaler doesn't help. Can acid reflex do this?

Gerd can cause bronchospasm, like asthma does, but neither should cause you to cough up blood. If you are short of breath or coughing up large amounts of blood, then go to the er.
