Asthma inhaler


My brown inhaler hasn’t been working very well for me, and the nurse in my practice prescribed a pink one called Fostair. It said you must read the pamphlet before using, so I have, and it says ‘do not use beta blockers with this medicine’. I’m on Atenolol 50 mg, and also to talk to your doctor if you have heart arrhythmias. I am waiting for a call from my doc, but just wondering if anyone else had had this problem?

Correct. beta blockers are not helpful if you have asthma so please speak to your GP asap.

Hello Cha 😊 I have asthma and use Seretide as a preventative .Because of my need for a beta blocker to help my P-AF I was prescribed Nebivolol which has been found to be tolerated by asthmatics.

I have has no problems with taking Nebivolol .

Thanku Doodle, that’s very helpful.

I take an inhaler called DuoResp, economy version of Symbicort. All inhalers have an arrhythmia warning I think.

Yes you’re right Buffafly. Thanku.

Another one here on Seretide and Nebivolol. No problems with my asthma control.

I take Duaklir Genuair plus Ventolin and i haven't had any problems.
