seretide alternatives???


I wondered if anyone could help. I'm currently on seretide 125 and have been for 6 months and although it is just about doing its job Its giving me a real husky voice which is really frustrating coz I do lots of shouting at work and need a strong voice. I know that might sound daft but I wondered if anyone new of any alternative meds that would do the same job in controlling my asthma but not affect my voice? any advice would be appreciated

The husky voice is usually a side effect if the steroid component of your seretide and is usually minimalised if you make sure you rinse your mouth and gargle straight after.

Hope this helps

I have the sameproblem! Do you use a spacer? I've been told that is supposed to help as well (I'm on dry powder version so can't sue spacer with it unfortunately). I think any steroid based inhaler will potentially have the same side effect as I've heard those on other combination inhalers (names escape me at the moment!) also complain of hoarseness
