No need to stop using your steroid inhaler for your asthma. I've used a variety of inhalers for my COPD for several years.
The % of steroids in inhalers is very low & has no affect on parasites that travel through the lungs as part of their life cycle.
For my COPD, taking the supplement N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC), 600mg, 3 times daily, has greatly improved my breathing & eliminated inflammation & mucous buildup in my lungs.

Besides being a marvelous supplement for the respiratory system, NAC is a powerful antioxidant for support of the immune system & liver functioning.
I highly recommend it for folks taking parasite meds, especially those with preexisting liver issues.
"N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is an amino-acid derivative (small protein) with over 40 years of scientific research to back it up. NAC’s powerful health benefits derive from its ability to restore intracellular levels of glutathione (GSH), which is the body’s most powerful antioxidant.
Glutathione is a very powerful antioxidant that helps the liver to protect you against toxicity, and it is most needed by those with liver disease. The stress of chronic liver disease depletes glutathione and this is why supplementing with one of its precursors, NAC helps to protect against ongoing liver damage.
NAC is a modified form of the sulfur-containing amino acid cysteine. NAC replenishes intracellular levels of glutathione (GSH), which restores your cells’ ability to fight damage from free radicals known as reactive oxygen species."
