Both my ventolin accuhaler and my Symbicort turbohaler ran out a few days ago.
the only way I can get new ones is to request via my doctor which takes ""up to 5 working days""
I managed to get one of the pump ventolin ones from a&e but I struggle to use these (always have)
had to buy a aerochamber spacer to use it in emergencies
After a bad asthma attack during the night I am struggling to breathe and constantly wheezing and coughing.
is there anywhere I can buy a symbicort turbohaler or a ventolin accuhaler over the counter?
I have tried to make an appt with my doctor to get the prescription faster but apparently you are not allowed to make appointments for repeat prescriptions. ""the doctor will refuse. only way to do it is either online or fill in a form at reception"" (reception form takes longer)
any ideas what I can do?
