importance of reading pt leaflets befor taking medicines

Hello

Yesterday I saw my local consultant who prescribed me qvar. As usual I read the pt leaflet to find it contains ethanol-Ive had problems before with ethanol.

Why o why isnt it printed on the box? instead of only on the pt leaflet ? it cant be re prescribed as ive broken the seal of the box but I havnt used it either,what a waste. I contacted respiratory nurse who has emailed the consultant-so back to where I started!!
