Hi, I have just been to my local pharmacy to find out if he has any becotide in stock. He has quite a supply but has informed me that once his supplier is out then that is it! so has adviced us to go to gp and get an alternative (still beclomethasone based I assume) arranged. I wondered if anyone who used the cfc type are already using a non cfc alternative and after any feed back (pros and cons) I am alittle dissapointed that the gp didn't inform me of the change in summer when Isaac was well as I would of happily tried others then but now it is getting into the winter months and I am reluctant to start changes as he is respondiong so well to the current inhalers, meds etc and changing 1 may create a blip.
We have an appointment tomorrow and I am going to try to get a few months worth of becotide while the pharmacy has the stock. Not sure if the doc will prescribe more than one but it's worth a try as I would rather wait until sprimg/summer to start any sudden changes.
To top it all off I read some protection spray can from clarkes that said 'do not spray into the athmoshere' so it's ok to have cfc cans which we can live without but not cfc inhalers! I understand that it is better to have cfc free but when a product can not be made cfc free and it helps with life conditions like asthma then surely we can make an exception? lets start saving the planet by getting rid of shoe protection sprays instead!!!
Sorry ended up as a rant
(deep breath, and relaxxxxxx)
Any views on which preventer etc would be great. my gp seems to give me what I want!!!
