  • i also now always use spacer really does make a difference goes every where possible lol

  • I love my spacers. I have two, a big one at home and a small one that goes everywhere with me, but if I'm not good and I go out then the big one comes as it's a better than the small one. It took me a while to get used to using them in public places but it doesn't bother me too much anymore.

  • Spacers are fab.

    My respiratory nurse told me that with the larger spacer you get 50% more inhaler into you than just using an inhaler on its own.

  • i've recently started using a spacer too, i never used to but i've just started using ventolin rather than the airomir i had before (mainly cos Asda only sells ventolin!). I've found the spray on the ventolin is much faster / harder than the airomir and, although i can do it it's harder to co-ordinate.

    I do like the spacer though i'm not sure i'd like to use it in public :-\ it took me long enough to get un-embarassed with just the inhaler, i'll see how i go
