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.
