Like a few others on here, I was issued a substitute for my Symbicort turbo haley without being told. I could tell immediately that it wasn't the same but I gave it a go for a couple of weeks but I could tell my asthma was getting more out of control.
When I went back to the pharmacist they said they weren't allowed to issue Symbicort unless specifically listed on the prescription .
I got an appointment to see an asthma nurse really quickly due to my worsening condition and she wasn't even aware that the pharmacist was doing this!
Anway, I'm back on Symbicort for the last few days and I think things are calming down but it feels like it will take a while.
Surely this shouldn't be happening without discussion
