Symbicort Inhaler

Hi - I've had a phone call from my GP's surgery asking me to make an appointment to see the asthma nurse to show me how to use the new Symbicort inhaler.

I've been using a Symbicort 200/6 Turbohaler since being prescribed it by the Respiratory Consultant in February, and the hospital pharmacy gave me a red demonstration turbohaler to practice on.

I haven't seen anything about a new Symbicort inhaler, and the internet hasn't cast any light on this either.

Has anybody else heard about this?

Thanks for all that helpful information- I was feeling a little frustrated with not getting anywhere! Now I know what to expect 😃
