Different doses of prednisone for 1yr. Now on 40mg-asthma, respiratory infection. Taking symbicort, (budesonide and formoterol) nebulizer, rescue inhaler. BP is high. Is it meds?

Possibly: I am very concerned that you have been on prednisone for a year for asthma. That is not good at all. I think you need to step up your preventive asthma therapy, adding in other preventives to your inhaled steroid, among other things. See a specialist for this asap. Yes, the elevated BP may be steroid related. ...Read more
