Got prescribed Relvar Ellipta 92/22 a few months back by the consultant after being poorly controlled on the Symbicort (SMART regime).
My Question is I have felt a big difference on the relief provided by the Relvar with less side effects than the Symbicort (GERD & Sore Mouth etc), but unfortunately the once a day hasn't worked well for me. I take my once daily shot on waking up about 8:30am and find it last throughout the day quite well, with the odd shot of ventolin if necessary. My issue is I have been waking with my asthma about 4am / 5am desperate for the next shot of relvar with my lungs feeling really tight. The duration of the drug doesn't feel to be 24 hours, more like 20 hours which is a real shame as I have felt the benefits but waking up at 4am everyday isn't an option anymore . Anyone else have the same problem with Relvar and feel it doesn't last the full day for them ? Any advice would be great.
Thanks - Ben
