    you should first calm down and not panic. you prolly must have had same in the past. how many tabs of salbutamol did you use? And do you have a drug called prednisolone at home? And what is your weight? give rough estimate if you dont know

    i presume you used 2tablets of 5mg of Salbutamol, that is enough for now. it is good to know that use of salbutamol is just to give you a temporary relief has it does not have any effect on the cause Asthma as it were. My adivice is that if you can get prednisolone, use 30mg (6tablets) stat. then try to get to your doctor, so that he can examine you thoroughly and rule out infection as a trigger or co existing condition. i hope this helps you
