For a project on asthma I have been doing some research on formoterol and I have found conflicting opinions on this medicine. One website said that formoterol should not be used as relief during an attack as it too slow acting where as another website said that is was fine to use and takes 1 to 3 minutes to kick in. I know LABAs are used in preventative measures when paired with inhaled steroids. Which is right in regards to an attack?
I am on formoterol and carry it with me and take (mainly when exercising) When having a problem. My consultant was the one to put me on this (also on pulmicort ) and no one else at hospital seems to have a problem with this being my reliever.
