The nurse at my doctors surgery just called me and advised that "due to the NHS cutting costs" I would have to change my medication. I have been asthmatic since birth and struggled in the last couple of years to control it (I just turned 27) finally finding the right medication after a flare up for around 2 years. Now everything is well controlled unless I have a cold etc.
She said it was the Seretide 250 they had to stop for now but can they actually do this? Her attitude was change to the cheaper alternative or pay for it yourself! I am worried they will also stop the Ventolin 100, I have tried the cheaper alternative several times, usually once every 5 years the chemist messes up so I give it a try. Each time, despite doctors saying there is no difference I have a shaking fit and become really faint.
I just want to check this is actually happening and it isn't my doctors surgery's way of cutting their costs. I rarely go to the doctors but I am really disappointed if this is a reality but will definitely move doctors if that is what they are having to do.
