Hi, I was recently diagnosed with asthma and have been taking Clenil MDI for about 6 weeks now. I take 2 puffs twice a day.
I have no problem taking my ventolin reliever inhaler, which is also an MDI. However ever since starting to take the Clenil, I have found it causes me to cough when breathing it in. I use a spacer and it is easier with the spacer but I still find I am using 3 or 4 puffs sometimes instead of 2 because I sometimes cannot help but cough when I'm trying to breathe it in.
I searched the forum but can't find anything on this. Has anyone else had this problem? Do you think switching to a DPI would help?
Since using the preventer my asthma has been much improved so I don't want to stop taking it!
