I am a newbie to this forum, but was hoping that you might be able to help me.
I registered at a new doctors yesterday, as I have recently moved. It was a bad experience. She didn't ask me any questions as a new patient registering that has asthma, but instead lectured me on taking my becotide every day. I am on becotide & severvent twice daily. She told me that continually taking the inhaled steroid is going to weaken my bones.
My asthma has been really up and down since diagnosis and at the end of last year I was really poorly was put on Beclaforte 250 - 2 puffs three times a day. I am really worried now because she has said that taking my becotide is detrimental to my long term health, but I really don't think that I can stop it.
Any one able to offer some words of wisdom?
