Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Is your asthma under control?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
my Asthma is currently under control but I have had attacks in the past and wouldn’t want to trigger one again

Well with severe asthma problems I wouldn't recommend you take it

If you haven't had an attack in some time then I think you can go ahead and take it

Please let me know if you need any more information

I had an attack 5 years ago so it should be okay?

Then it should be fine to take it
