hello, I have mild bronchiectasis, and asthma, I'm an ex smoker, stopped 7 years approx, my troubles lie with my doctor as in reluctance to ever prescribe antibioticts, and rarely steroids. a few weeks back I got a 5 day course of Prednisilone due to wheeze, persistent cough, painful feelings in my lung/back area, well they helped but only for a few days and I'm back to square 1, can these steroids be given for more than 5 days at a time, perhaps on a reduced dose or something? I seriously get more help on here from you guys n gals than at the doctors, I almost dread going for fear of being sent home with nothing yet again, any advice please. thankyou
