OK. I've had asthma since I was a child and for years it was properly controlled. For the last few years, I have been a little lax about controlling it to say the least -thinking it had gone away and then I am confronted with it again.
I have been prescribed ventilin, but I find it to be of limited use - probably one of the main reasons I have stopped using it and why I get so breathless all the time. I was wondering, is there an alternative to it? I went to my GP a while ago about it and saw, unfortunately as it turned out, a registrar who basically told me that there were 2 options - ventilin or a nebuliser and he didnt think it was bad enough to warrent a nebuliser (which it wasnt and still isnt). Preventative inhalers, for example, didnt even get a mention (but then maybe that wouldnt have been an option at that time, my asthma has got worse recently).
So, basically, I'm just after information at this point - id appreciate any and all info on this point really.
