I am an 18 year old female. When I was 5 years old, I had pneumonia. At that time I was fully cured. Now, I am suffering from cough, cold and sneezing for so many days. My doctor recommended many medicines along with Montair-LC. Everything is fine now, but the problem is that I have to take Montair-LC regularly. When I try to stop this medicine, I feel suffocating. I am taking this medicine over the last three months. In early days I used to take it regularly, but nowadays I am taking it alternate days. I am bound to take it otherwise I feel suffocating and start coughing. According to doctors and my reports everything is fine. Please suggest a way to discontinue this medicine. Thank you.
