Hi all. I've had inhalers for asthma since I was 12 (now 34) and have now progessed to home nebulisers. I was initially on beclamethasone (brown) preventer 250, twice a day, a few years ago whilst in hospital I was changed to symbicort (red/white), and a couple years later seretide (purple)250. I am really bad for remebering to take my preventer.
I saw a chest consultant on monday, ive been pushed pillar to post a bit since a serious of very bad spells a couple of years ago... and he wants me to start taking the seretide again regulary. I collected my prescription today and my gp has taken it upon himself to change it from seretide 250 all the way to one puff of beclamethasone 200! i called to ask why and he was rude and agressive on the phone. I'm really not sure what to do next. Any advice appreciated and should i take the beclamethasone in the meantime?
