... get down to 20 mgs alternate days but am finding it harder now that i am in my late 40's. i take theophylline, ventolin, formoterol, omeprazole, flucticasone inhalers everyday, and do acupuncture regularly. are there any new drugs to help me so i don't have to keep on taking the prednisone in larger doses whenever i have been having flare ups- every 2 months now? has anyone had success with alternative therapies?
I have been on prednisone for over 30 years, since age 16, for severe asthma. I usually am able to?

Have you tried xolair injections. I have brittle asthma and thanks to xolair I can now cut my prednisiolone down to 15mg per day and I have only stoped breathing three times in two years compared to twice a month before. I have been on prednisiolone since 1983 when I was three years old. I am now 34. I do still need all my other medication all of which you are on but I was able to reduce my prednisiolone
I've been taking grape seed exract for 19 yrs, have totally gotten rid of allergy and sinus issues... I don't have asthma BUT a friend who does, has been taking grape seed ex for over 6 yrs, she has been able to reduce meds...
Do a search of grape seed ex and asthma OR pycnogenol and asthma
Both are powerful antioxidants and work for allergies/sinus/asthma/edema/some cancers and much more...
