Is anyone using Alvesco and do you use it with a spacer? I've been on it for about a month now and it's working well but it does not fit n my spacer so I take it without. My only concern is thrush in my throats and mouth.
Alvesco with a spacer?: Is anyone using... - Asthma UK communi...
"The spacer that fits the Alvesco inhaler is called AeroChamber PlusTM."
As below I use AeroChamber PlusTM with my Alvesco inhaler and have done for ages, I agree, the fit is not completely perfect, but ok if you fiddle around. It is what the manufacturer of Alvesco suggests.
I asked my consultant and he said better with than without. I always try to start breathing in before I press the inhaler.
Thanks I've cobbled a rubber washer made out of apiece of old inner tube over the inhaler and its made a better seal against the spacer rubber. I do like Alvesco as it does seem to have less side affects than my old Seretide plus hopefully my gerd will improve with less systemic steroids and no LABA. I'm a convert to Alvesco but the test will be a flare up. Fingers crossed. Wish they did a nasal spray.
