Hi .. have you been to an allergist?  Do you have any thoughts on what you may be allergic to?  You may be very right bcz sometimes once the allergin is removed the asthma can get better.  Have they considered what is called in the States Singulair at all ?  It's a asthma prevention med aimed at blocking the leukatrins and works oftentimes with allergy driven asthma or RAD (reactive airway disease).
