I opened my repeat prescription collection today to find a completely different inhaler inside - Fostair instead of Seretide. I called the pharmacist thinking it was a mistake and he informed me I'd been switched by my GP and it's an equally effective medication. When I questioned the fact they were different active ingredients he said they were steroids of the same strength.
I just feel a bit disoriented by having this sudden change sprung on me from a medication plan which was working quite well for me. I'm also a bit puzzled my GP didn't feel the need to tell me.
Has anybody else switched to Fostair? What are your experiences?
