I am on atrovent ,seretide salbutamol ,Eklira Genuair and uniphyllin, last week I had a phone call from my practice nurse , she told me my doctor ( a very good one)has told me to stop with the atrovent as I have been on the Eklira

Genuair fo nearly a year now so I shouldn`t need the atrovent as they are a similar drug,but I am really s o b now so I have rang the surgery to explain my problem, do I restart the atrovent or not ?they are going to ring me back later in the day. has any one else had this experience?
