No rescue inhaler? Do you have an action plan? Have you had pft's done assuming he is old enough? You also do not mention what his rescue inhaler is. Advair and singular do not help acute events, nor does nasonex (mometasone). Frequent use of steroids indicate poorly controlled asthma. I suggest you consult with a pulmonologist and / or an allergist. Read more...

Talk to doctor if concerned or condition worsened. Read more...
