Just returned with my repeat prescription gear and have been given Salamol Inhaler instead of the Ventolin that I usually get. Is it effective as Ventolin? I remember years ago a GP telling me that the particles in Ventolin were smaller than generic inhalers and therefore went further into the lungs. Is this still the case or have things improved? Appreciate your thoughts on the matter. I suppose it is a result of what we have seen on tv recently about doctors prescribing more expensive brand name drugs than they supposedly need to.
