I wouldn't be without my nebulisers, they're superb in helping me.

What do you put in it please i am just using salt water cheers

I use Atrovent, Bricanyl, Budesonide nebules which my GP prescribed for me.

I see your up in the night do you have sleeping issues as well i do thankyou

Cheers thankyou do you use it daily even when feeling ok

I'm currently suffering with pneumonia which is affecting my chronic asthma, not a good combination as you can imagine.

I sympathise i had it in 2010 thought i was dieing hope you recover very soon

Hi I use ventolin in mine. Doc gives me ventolin noudles. They do work well. Hope you feel better soon. I have brittle asthma and my hubby has Ipf. Best wishes xx

Have you been prescribed the Nebuliser to go into the Nebulisers? If not don't buy one until you do otherwise will be a waste of money. Consultants are reluctant to prescribe them because patients become reliant on them.

That's ok just didn't want you to waste your money if no one supplied you with NEBULES predicted text kept changing it hence the capitals.
