I take Prednisone, Symbicort, and Theo-Dur all daily. I use my ProAir only as needed. Anyone have any suggestions?

I'm not an expert .... are you taking something like Advair on a daily basis?  If not, maybe something like that with a long actor bronchiodialator coupled with steriod may be helpful for inbetween times you need the oral steroids.
