Just wondering if anyone can give me some advice, I went to see my asthma nurse today and she gave me some new prescriptions which the doctors suggested i should try, one of them was for a budesonide/eformoterol inhaler which was a lower dose them my current seretide inhaler and I have also tried this before and it didn't help. I was expecting them to try me on something new but instead they tried to put me on to a lower dose inhaler even though I am currently getting over a chest infection and taking prenisolone. anyone have any ideas as to why they might have done this?
anyway I refused to take the new inhaler and I also found out that they have taken my current seretide inhaler off my repeat prescription form, they also prescribed me hayfever medication which includes nasonex and oral antihistammines even though I don't have hayfever. is this normal?
also has anyone tried anything that really helped that I could suggest to my doc as i really don't know what to do anymore
p.s sorry for the long post but I'm just so confused and frustrated!
