Does anyone else find that fostair 200 inhaler gets less effective when you’re down to last 15 doses? I’ve found I’ve had to use more ventolin at this point , was wondering if anyone else has this
Fostair 200mcg inhaler: Does anyone... - Asthma UK communi...
Yes, it applies to all pressurised inhalers I think.
My last one started packing up at around 50! I've been attributing it to cold exposure (I was visiting my son in Canada), especially as the ventolin device was also going a bit feeble. I had a spare for that, but not the Fostair as over 50 doses for a ten day trip *should* have surely been enough!
On another Fostair now but the old one still shows 11 left and was occasionally delivering a decent looking puff, just not reliably. Breathing still not fully back to where it was when I left but I'm giving it a second week on the new one before I worry, having checked back to when I started the first one I had and seen that was about how long it took to show improvement.
I was thrilled to have the counter after a few anxious years on Clenil but if we can't rely on the counters, how much use are they?
