There are, of course, some reasons to be concerned about long-term inhaled
steroid use, but you should talk these through with your doctor. Good luck!

Recently, I was training for the Ironman, and had similar issues develop.
The doctor presribed Flovent (very expensive, very effective).
I'd be careful about taking prednisone, though. The stuff effects different
people different ways. I had a serious battle with Poison oak about 6
months ago, where that was prescribed. Though I didn't think this was
possible, I averaged 3 hours of sleep a night for three weeks. The stuff had
me amped like I'd never been amped before. I recall doing 8 mile runs at 3
in the morning, slightly above what is usually my lactate threshold, and not
even being tired afterward. It is a banned substance for racing, however,
so if you want to feel a drug-free sense of accomplishment, I'd steer clear.
