Sorry if this has been answered before but I had a look and couldn't quite find what I was after in the other Atrovent posts.
Just been prescribed this by GP, it tastes awful but seems (just on a couple of puffs) to be doing at least something! Label says 'two puffs when symptoms' and I know it works differently from salbutamol. However, I'm still a bit confused about when I would take this instead of Ventolin - do you alternate, or what? eg if I woke up in the night would I reach for this or for Ventolin?
And are you supposed to limit how much you take? The label has all the usual stuff about don't take too much, if you miss a dose skip it etc etc which I know doesn't really apply to Ventolin, but I don't want to take too much Atrovent.
Basically I don't really know where I am this one so any pointers would be appreciated - thanks!
