Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh! Sorry just had to scream. I knew becotide and becloforte was going off the market and we had been told everyone was being changed to the equivalent dose of Qvar. Hiccup - I'm allergic to Qvar. Just before Christmas I saw the asthma nurse and my GP to discuss all this and got sent to see the Con too. The Con assured me that it was only the manufacturer that was discontinuing them because they aren't CFC free but the drug itself is still being produced by another manufacturer. He also said that as I am finally stable on my current meds nothing was to be changed! He even wrote to the GP to let them know. I even have allergic to Qvar written on my records. Just received a letter this morning to say medication has been changed to Qvar. I now have to do the rounds of seeing GP and asthma nurse again to try and sort it out. Even managed to get an appointment this afternoon to do so. I will try not to scream at them, apparently the surgery pharmacist changed the med. Has this happened to anyone else. i know othersx are also allergic to Qvar?
