Since my inhaler was changed to the new cfc free ones I have been having asthma attacks for 2 months. I have tried Clenil Modulite - makes me sick and fast heart beat, Q var makes my asthma worse, Pulmicort gives me bad headaches, Asmabec clickhaler makes me dizzy as does the easyhaler,tried Alvesco but gives me migraines, been taking Symbicort for 4 weeks now, but the blurred vision and daily multiple migraines with auras have finally taken its toll and i am now going to stop taking it, even though my asthma was well controlled on it. I have tried Alvesco but again it gives me migraines. I think in all I have tried 9 different inhalers of different types and have yet to find one to work. I am at present toying with the Flixotide accuhaler, which I have tried before and had headaches from, but thats better than migraines. Throughout this the GP seems to be not bothered says ring Paramedics if you get bad, which I had done twice, they nebulise me and then send me home. I can't take steroid tablets as I have severe depression at this time and find the steroids make it worse. I feel I will never find the Right inhaler. I do take Ventolin and find I have no problems with this, its just the preventer inhalers.
I also have Rheumatoid arthritis, dont know whether this makes ay difference.
Has anyone else ever had so many problems with inhalers and will I ever find the right inhaler?
