Autumn has found my asthma am on a new inhaler this year. symbicort 200/6. i have contacted my asthma nurse and have been advised to take two puffs six times a day. i am dosing 6am, 9am, 12 noon, 3pm, 6pm and 9pm. My question is where does my lonely blue inhaler come into all this. it seems blue inhalers are just an accessory now not something that is used during an exacerbation.
