Do You Have Any Problems With Inhalers?

0 votes
I have been a victim of asthma since time immemorial. I was on Accolate and Advair to keep my asthma under check. I used to get severe attacks very often and had to hospitalize due to it and also contracted chronic bronchial infections and was sometimes given a steroid injections to combat my illness. I used of course my inhaler several times a day. So the doctor decided to take it off and they also extracted the vital ingredient of medicines. All this was not at all effective for me and he tried putting me on many other inhalers with absolutely no respite. I would like to know whether anybody has any problems with inhalers like me. I got in touch with a pharmacy that had left over stock and I brought a whole lot of inhalers together. I am really worried what I will do once it gets over. I have heard about a lot of people who did not get treatment at the nick of time and as a result even died. I would like to know whether there is anyone else in the same boat as mine who experiences this problems with new inhalers. If so do get in touch with me so that we can share our experiences with each other.

I don't personally have asthma but I will give you some information about it.
Inhalers are the main treatment for asthma. However, some side effects do occur in some people.  Some of the inhaler drug hits the back of the throat. Sometimes this can cause problems such as thrush in the mouth. This tends to be more of a problem with higher doses of steroid inhalers.Therefore, a spacer device may be advised if you get throat problems, or need a high dose of inhaled steroid.
