Ah yes, COLDS. My enemy! I do everything I can to avoid them, because it seems to go right into my lungs, in attack mode!

I usually only take my advair once a day, but as soon as I get a cold, I take it twice a day. Now I have learned that at the first sign of a cough, I will get prednisone. If the cough gets worse, I take it immediately. I hate being on it, but sometimes it's the only thing that works.

So for me, the key is acting early when the coughing starts. I also make sure I get enough rest, and monitor my peak flow readings. This summer I got a God-awful illness. It started out with a cough, but ended up like a cold, but with a slight fever. My peak flow was cut in half! So I use it to really monitor how I'm doing. But yes, colds do the same thing to me.

I do hope you feel better soon!

So I use it to really monitor how I'm doing whenever I'm sick, take all my meds, and act early w/ prednisone or antibiotics if I seem to have an infection. But yes, colds do the same thing to me.

I do hope you feel better soon!
