I have just been prescribed Salamol inhalers rather than my usual Ventolin. I'm still getting used to the switch and at the moment I miss my old Ventolins but some observations:
-The canister of the inhaler is smaller. At first I thought somebody was palming me off with half-sized medication.
-The aftertaste is sweeter.
-You have to push down a little harder to get a dose.
-I am not 100% sure they are as effective for me but again it may be I'm still getting used to the differences after 27 years of using ventolin.
Anyone else got any thoughts? Apologies if this has already been covered.
