Using Intal MDI through a spacer (if I spray it straight in is horrible, kind of burning and makes me cough a bit). However, I have noticed stuff coming out of the top of the canister when I press down using the spacer - doesn't seem to happen going straight in without one.
I always thought this was what happens when you use an MDI without a spacer and your technique isn't great - this is what the Ventolin leaflet says anyway. But thought using a spacer was a lot more foolproof and this wouldn't happen. Am I doing something wrong (press down, breathe in slowly through spacer and hold breath) or could there be an issue with the spacer? I know not many people use Intal but wondered if this had been an issue with steroid MDIs. The Intal seems to be doing something for me but obviously I would like as much as possible to reach my lungs.
