My 10 year old daughter was diagnosed with asthma just over 2 weeks ago. She has been using clenil modulite as her preventer inhaler but it seemed to be irritating her as she was coughing every time she tried using it. I spoke to the dr over the phone and her suggested trying a different preventer and has prescribed easy healer Budesonide. I had presumed that we would use it just as her old one - i.e. Through her spacer but having just collected it I realise it probably won't work. Is she meant to use it without a spacer, I thought they recommended to as it helped to get into their system better and reduced the risk of things like thrush - advice gratefully received as dr gave no guidance and is now uncontactable til tomorrow.
