My GP refuses to give me Ventolin and Seretide due (as he puts is) to the CCG rules. I am allowed to take Salamol and Sirdupla as these are recommended by the CCG. However, Salamol is horrible, leaves a nasty taste, makes my throat sore and dry. GP still refuses me Ventolin. I now have to see the Asthma nurse (who doesn't know me) in order to make sure I am taking my inhalers properly before he will consider writing to the CCG on my behalf. I feel GP is being rude and bullying. He knows I have taken Ventolin for 20 years without any major problems but he still insists on Salamol. He also knows my mother died of an asthma attack when I was 16, so I don't take this switch lightly.
Can anyone tell me what I can do about getting my Ventolin back?
Thanks in advance.
