Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I am Dr K. I have over 25 years of clinical experience and look forward to answering your question. i may need more information from you, so I may ask for that. My goal is to provide a complete answer to your question and to be sure you are satisfied with that answer.

I am sorry that you are having this problem but will do my best to assist you and answer your questions.   I’m assuming you have not located a GP.

The easiest way to get emergency care is to use the 111 service.   Call them first.

You can use your nebulizer every six hours.  I’m not sure what dose of prednisone you are on but 20 mg daily is recommended for five days for asthma attack.

Thank you for trusting Just Answer with your question. Please let me know if you have additional concerns or need me to clarify something. I am happy to help.

111 is your best option.    You should get help today.     You may also be able to get a short supply at the local chemist.   Thank you for trusting Just Answer with your question. Please let me know if you have additional concerns or need me to clarify something. I am happy to help.
