Hello. Prednisone is a potentially dangerous drug and can only be prescribed after an in-person evaluation. In the meantime, if your asthma is flaring you can increase an albuterol inhaler to every 2-3 hours, if necessary. If you have been prescribed a steroid inhaler, be sure to continue this daily and consider increasing it (with your doctor's approval). If you need a respiratory treatment, or to add another inhaler, you need to go to express care or the ER, particularly if your symptoms are severe or you are tiring.
