So a few weeks back I started using my ventolin a bit too much on low barometric pressure days up to 6 times daily when weather was like this... my other inhaler was spiriva respimat ..
Move forward to appointment with nurse at GP practice .. offered me a choice of spiolto or trimbow to see if this would curb the over use of ventolin .. I choose to trial Spiolto as Trimbow has a small amount of steroid in it ...
Moving on Spiolto gave me every side affect known to man headache.. dizzy.. sickness .. absolutely vile stuff took myself off it and rang the nurse to explain my desire to try Trimbow...we argued for a bit as she didn't want to give me Trimbow eventually after much persistence and me knowing my own body and lungs I got it yesterday...
I took the Trimbow as prescribed started yesterday morning around 10 am ....haven't touched my ventolin since starting it ..
Don't give up on yourself if you know you want..need or just want a trial on a new inhaler . Do it I'm feeling so much better today than I have done for weeks and if I need the ventolin I can still take it have a lovley weekend everyone 💜
So pleased you found the right inhaler for you. Ha be e a lovely day and take care 😊 Bernadette and Jack 🐕 xxxxxx 🌻🌻
Its only right we should have choice and knowing ourselves is much better than the practise nurse who sees you once every 5 years 😂
