Just to let everyone know, Astra Zeneca are having a manufacturing problem with this medicine at the moment. I had to scour the country to get two inhalers. I rang Astra Zeneca, and they said there was a problem with their "Manufacturing Process". But that there would be stocks available later this month. My pharmacy and GP also called, but got no more information than I did.
I am concerned as this drug ran out of Patents earlier this year. I am not sure what the demand is, as it is normally prescribed as either a tertiary ICS or Add on. As it is quite an expensive inhaler. However I don't know what I will do without it.
I suspect that they may be re-launching product in a combination inhaler, which currently does not exist, but they have been doing trials. Who knows?
Any way if you rely on this medicine, like I do, make sure you leave a lot of time to refill your prescription.
