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
