Alvesco with a spacer?
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.
"The spacer that fits the Alvesco inhaler is called AeroChamber PlusTM."
Hi Pete thanks but the Alvesco inhaler does not fit that it leaves gaps as the inhaler is round.
Mine is flexible rubber and fits most shape inhalers!
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.
