For over 30 years I’ve controlled my asthma using ventolin inhalers with the instructed dosage of 2x puffs 4 times daily or when required.
Recently my request for a repeat prescription has been made difficult as the asthma Nurse at my doctors surgery informs me using my inhaler more than 2 times a week is excessive and my asthma is out of control!
I have done some breathing tests at the surgery and have an appointment at the hospital last Dec.
Previously I have been issued 2 inhalers with each prescription which always means I have one in reserve.
Nowadays I am informed one inhaler is meant to last 30 days, which it doesn’t, and have to argue for a repeat on every occasion.
Moreover, I am now using online services to purchase medication as I don’t need the stress
