Answer

Foracort is a medicine meant to prevent you from having an asthma attack. It should never be taken more than twice a day, and there can be serious consequences of using it more often then twice a day.

That said, I think Foracort is a great medicine, but it seems that this med alone is not going to control your asthma. Perhaps there are certain asthma triggers you are exposed to and can work harder to avoid. Perhaps you need a higher dose of Foracort. Perhaps there are other meds that may work best for you. The best way to find out how better to control your asthma is to educate yourself about this disease right here on this site, and by finding a good doctor who will work with you to manage your asthma.

There really is no reason you should have to quit cricket because of your asthma.

While there is no cure for this disease, it can definitely be controlled.
