Hello, I've been using fostair 200/6 for a while now and fostair 100/6 as my reliver. Both aerosol. Along with some other asthma and allergy meds.
I recently moved home from university, where this treatment was prescribed.
My home asthma nurse didn't flag anything he first 2 appointments. I recently requested a new reliever (fostair 100/6). My GP flagged this and said I couldn't have that as I'm already taking fostair 200/6 two puffs twice a day. They said I had to use a blue inhaler instead-one has not been prescribed. My mum picked up some other medicines for me this morning and non of my asthma medication was in the bag. Despite ordering them a few days ago and being approved.
My GP also changed my fostair 200/6 aerosol to a nextinhaler (dry powder) I don't remember being asked about this change- stating that's what they use here unless "physically proven I can't administer it properly".
I've been taking it for a few days and can't take it without gaging and wheezing.
I have an appointment with the asthma nurse in 2 weeks - any advice would be great!
At university I was being treated at the hospital by the respiratory department as they said I shouldn't be under the GP, that has not been mentioned since coming home.
Not sure what to do as I'm going on a long holiday in the new year to cold countries where I'll be skiing and walking in the cold.
If you have any advice I would really appreciate it.
