Hi, I am new to this forum but thought it would be useful for get some up-to-date info on asthma medications. My son is almost 16 yrs old and was diagnosed with asthma at six months old. We live in Spain and have done for 7 years. Before we left the UK he was on Becotide and Ventolin. For the first few years of living here, his asthma almost disappeared. However, recently it has returned and as I am out of touch with medications, thought someone could give me the names of some new ones. A consultant here in Spain prescribed Seretide - very good but costs 56euros per month!! I have also read somewhere that Becotide is no longer used in UK. My GP is ok but again, I think is a bit out of touch with latest meds. Any help would be gratefully received.
