The last prescription i had filled was just a blue inhaler and only when i opened the box a few days later i discovered i'd been given the wrong device. Normally i have an autohaler but this time i'd been given a 'Squirt n Suck' type. it didn't matter cos it was the same drug so i decided to just start using it. i've decided i actually prefer this one rather than my autohaler, it's got a softer spray and is nearly silent in operation and i have no problem co-ordinating press and breathe in.
Now i think i need to convince my GP / asthma nurse that i'd rather have this type of inhaler in future. It's a shame i've only just had my review which means it's nearly 12 months until the next one is due and i don't want to go just to ask to change device. i'm lucky in that i very rarely have serious problems with my asthma so usually don't need to see medical people about it except for regular review
