So, today I go to pick up my repeats from the pharmacy and when I check my bag there's an unusual box in there, Flutiform, instead of my usual Seretide. When I went to my Doctors reception to ask why my prescription has changed to a different drug combination, she explained that it had been done because it was cheaper and I should have received a letter explaining the change. Any one else had this? Where they've just changed things and not told you? I know the steroid is the same in both the Seretide and the Flutiform, but the LABA is different, so I think it's a bit strange to change it without saying anything. Hopefully it will be better for me, but if it doesn't work as well then I shall certainly be going back to change back to Seretide. Also wonder what my cons will think of the change when he finds out.
Also a bit odd, but they changed the dispensing label description on my ventolin to ""1 to 2 puffs up to four times daily as required"". Lol, I wish. I'd have thought that looking at the frequency at which I refill this prescription that they'd have noticed that I frequently take more than that.
