Alvesco - Ciclesonide

Ok - I'll keep this brief. Recently prescribed Alvesco 160 mcg - 2 puffs twice a day. Have had terrible croaky throat - asthma nurse at clinic said should take through volumatic / spacer type thing! Makes my asthma worse when I do this...... after a cpl of days breathing had plummetted. Reversed to taking full blast and chest ok but throat rubbish again! Is this normal.... Thanks

there is ethanol in this inhaler so if youve had problems with salamol inhaler its likely to be the ethanol
