Hi there was wondering if you could help me?
So recently I have been diagnosed with asthma due to a lot of breathing difficulties and just going through the event of having laryngitis and dysphonia since June. Through private medical, The doctor prescribed me Qvar advising me that I should get this prescription under NHS as it shall be long term.
So I went to my local asthma practitioner and instead of giving me Qvar 100 he prescribed me Centil 100 advising me it's the same and I should take two puffs a day. He wasn't very happy that the private doctor told me to come to NHS but at the time I was to shocked with his attitude I should've explained to him that i'm glad I did as the second opinion diagnosed me with asthma because when I went to the initial doctor she just said I had a throat infection.
I'm going to be speaking to my doctors later to ask why he gave me a different prescription as my private doctor said he should give me Qvar. I am new to this, please can somebody enlighten me are they the same or is there a massive difference? Qvar would've been given to me in the easy breath inhaler whereas now the Centil is the brown asthma pump. Thank you for your help in advance I hope I have made sense.
