I have just been informed that Glaxo Smith Kline (GSK) is rationing boxes of IV Ventolin to one box per pharmacy per month! they have advised via my pharmacy that I get a box from each pharmacy that has it! What the......!!!!!
I use 6 boxes a month for s/c infusion via a Graseby syringe driver as I am Brittle asthmatic and without this I would not be able to function / breathe.
One box last five days.... am I not allowed to breathe for the rest of the month?
I have the phone number of GSK, tried earlier just before 5PM but got sent round the houses and looped in an everlasting queue so I will 'Enquire' on Monday.
I have used Bricanyl in the past but I get on better with Ventolin. I don't want to be forced back to using Bricanyl. ( Volume and cramps problems etc)
I assume there are no problems at the mo with Astra Zeneca and IV Bricanyl????
Sorry for the rant! Any one else here using Ventolin instead of bricanyl for s/c ???
