Having spent years on Seratide 250 I was told by the asthma nurse that Lambeth policy was to stop prescribing it and my medication was changed to DuoResp Spiromax 160.
I had trouble adjusting and felt like my asthma was out of control, found this web site and started calming down.
But I had kicked off about the Lactose content in DuoResp as I have spent 40 years avoiding milk product, only to find that Seretide also contains Lactose.
Over the last 6 years I have developed a terrible cough from too much mucus in lungs and this is just ignored by doctors as I work full time and they dont see it as a problem.
But it is a big problem for me. [I'mm 66 years old.]
Does anyone think it's the Lactose in inhalers that causes the lungs to manufacture too much mucus and also does anyone know why they put it in inhalers?
I have learnt more from this web site in the last two weeks than in a lifetime of being asthmatic.
