Asthma sufferers uch as myself will know this inhaler as 'the brown one' - the one with the steroids. I have been using a similar inhaler to this all my life - usage being twice in the morning and twice at night.
However, I was recently pescribed a new inhaler on my repeat pescription (clenil modulite) due to the fact the beclometasone has been discontinued due to the CFCs in it apparently.
I gave the new clenil modulite inhaler a chance, although it was difficult even though the modulite made by an alternate company was packaged in much the same way the beclometasone and the becotide were before that. however it is in the usage of the clenil modulite that was too strong for my system and i often gagged whilst using it. The modulite seemed to also expel more liquid in usage that also has a unique fragrance - all these qualities were exempt in teh usage of the beclometasone.
So I complained about the clenil modulite and was pescribed a steroid free alternative - salmeterol xinofoate - this time packaged in an attractive 'off green'. I tried this, and I dont know if it was a result of the lack of steroid in an inhaler i was using after using an inhaler with steroid in it all my life, but my throat began to dry and sore during the weeks which i tried using it and I felt bloated as if my metabolism was affected.
I have since stopped using the salmeterol over the christmas and new year period of excess where stability of my asthma (as all asthma sufferers know) was needed.
My asthma is currently under control because I'm using the dreggs of two beclometasone inhalers I have left over, however these will soon run out.
has anyone else encountered this problem?
