Many will take two inhalations of salbutamol 10 minutes before exercise particularly prior to exercise in cold air or before a swim either in a chlorinated pool or the colder sea .

That makes sense. I have very mild ashma, but sometimes feel it running in the cold air (although the discomfort is largely eclipsed by my cold uritcaria!!!!)

I thought there had been in the past warnings of potential death/ morbidity from overuse (more than 2 puffs q 12 hours?) of the long- acting beta agonist inhalers... but I believe you even said, Ilene, 10-12 inhalations a day, combined with a steroid inhaler... that is certainly new news for me... thank you, again
