I wanted to ask if anybody has ever had or currently has trouble with side effects whilst using a brown Beclometasone inhaler?
In short, I have been suffering for asthma badly for 6 months. I used to have very mild asthma as a child but have been prescribed a brown (Beclometasone) inhaler. Every time I use it for 48 hours or more (2 puffs a day or less), I end up having chest pains and feeling generally lightheaded and exhausted.
I feel like I am in a vicious cycle. Both my GP and Asthma Nurse have told me just to stop taking it and use my blue inhaler as and when required but using the blue one gives me palpitations and headaches.
I am feeling really miserable about it. I am to go for a spirometry test and I am really frightened. There is a long history of asthma in my family (my father, my aunt - who died of it in the late 60s, my cousin and my paternal grandfather).
