There are two parts to this question:
Firstly, has anyone been prescribed Tiotropium for asthma and has it helped (I gather it's usually used for COPD)
Secondly, my consultant today said that this now came with a brand new devise that vaporised the medication delivering it in a similar way to a neb. I went to the hospital pharmacy to get it but they said it was so new they didn't have it in stock and to get a prescription from my GP so the chemist could order one in rather than me having to go back to the hospital again. I did all this and was a bit suspicious that the chemist actually had it in stock (although they're pretty good so I just assumed they were ultra efficient). However, I've just got it home and looked at it and it definitely isn't what my consultant was talking about - what it is, is an older devise (called a HandiHaler) he said the new one replaced. Do I use this till I see my GP on Monday? Use it and contact my resp. nurse at the hospital or not use it? The quantities seem right, just the devise is wrong.
