Hi all, I have been debating whether to buy a nebuliser and wondered if anyone had any advice.
I have Copd and I only have 1 lung due to a cancer . Do you think it would benefit me? I am using Trimbow at the moment but find it dries my throat.
Are the portable nebulisers any good. Thank you. 😊x
Please look at other posts about nebulisers. The main thing (especially being a UK resident) is do not go ahead unless you know for definite that your doctors will prescribe medications for said nebuliser! Many doctors, especially GPs will not issue meds for nebuliser. Rationale is that if you need to use one, you should be going to A&E…. I am fortunate to have a nebulisers at home and it’s saved me attendance hospital numerous times. However I have had the discussion about when I should seek additional medical support.
Thanks Bevvy 🙂xx
I agree with bevvy. I had a really bad asthma attack went to to my GP . Had to have a nebuliser at the surgery. He said I needed to have more nebulisers said either at hospital or at-home. He contacted the pharmacy got a discount on the nebuliser and sent a prescription there to he collected. I then had to go and see the GP every two days and was referred to a consultant .Consultants not happy with home nebulisers say if that bad need to go to A& E .Have used home nebulisers a few times at home under supervision of the GP. My asthma is better controlled atm and not needed to use the nebuliser for years. Hope this helps
I am seeing my GP on Tuesday so will have a word. I dont think I need it except when I have a bad flare up. 😊
