I haven't had an attack in probably 5+ years. I found my old inhaler a few days ago and it is almost full and dated out in 2008.

So I took two puffs off of my inhaler and I was better within 5 minutes. The problem is that I had another attack less than two hours later and my chest feels raw and I am not sure how often I can take my albuterol and be safe =/ The RX says every 6 hours.

I am thinking about calling the advice nurse.
Call, call, call!!! I have some minor asthma and know that it is nothing to mess with. See what they say and go get checked out if you need to. Take care, mama!!
