    Hi Marion, I too seem too suffer more when the weather is humid as well but I have only been given a salbutamol inhaler for now. I've tried a few times when I feel breathless but it doesn't seem to do anything to help. I hope you find something that helps you breath more easily soon, take care & keep smiling :0)

    Hello Marion,

    the only thing I would think of is cortison (prednisolon). This makes you breath easier. But always consult your doctor. He should know what is best to take.... Take care, Christianne

    I use a Nebulizer machine with 2 different meds..a couple of weeks ago I had to call out the EMS because I could not breath and the center of my chest was really hurting...I thought I might be having a heart attack....They told me never use Puffers except in an emergency when you are out....They do not go deep enough to do any good...

      You are so right there, the puffers are absolutley no good for bronchiactisis.  My son suffers with summer asthma (due to bad air in London)  When he uses a puffer he gets immediate relief.  The puffer opens the airways, where as with bronchi the airways are blocked
