My father 74 years has a asthma for few years now. The doctors prescribe him fiboresp 200 mg and deriphyllin od 450 for few years now. Since he's little fine, is it ok to stop his medication for few days because I am afraid it the medicine may cause side effects?

1. Not correct treatment I feel. Fibrotesp is not for asthma.
