New inhaler

Went for my asthma review this morning,breathing still not great after steroids and antibiotics said to nurse I really didn't want to go on more steroids and she agreed with me , so trying a new inhaler fostair 200/6. She wants me to use it with an aero chamber mask. Back to see her in a month to see if there's any improvement so fingers crossed..... happy new year to you all 🎉🍾

I had a bad chest infection which saw me going into the hospital for 5 days. I'm on steroids and lowering the dose now but the nurse has changed me to fostair as well. I m not sure about it yet but giving a go as I've been so bad this year. Let's hope 2017 is better for us all!


I agree aero chambers are really good for taking your inhaler. I hope and pray you feel better soon.


Hi i have noticed that a lot of people are being changed to fostair steroid inhaler good luck.

I have also read that it is important to use the air chamber and wrinse you mouth with water or mouth wash to save getting thrush

Fostair is being prescribed because it is more potent and the finer particles mean that it gets further into your lungs!! Hope it makes a difference!
