See if you can tell what is making your asthma flare up, if you can stay away from those types of things until your asthma calms down that would help.  Also, drinking coffee.  I know it sounds crazy but, coffee mimics theophylline.  It relaxes and opens the air passages in the lungs. It is the caffeine that makes this work.  In the olden days that what people gave their children with asthma.  Hope this helps. May GOD Bless
