Can anyone advice me please, on what type of monitoring should I expect by my GP /Asthma Nurse, on my visits to find out how my well or not I'm really doing on my current treatment, apart from recording my peak flow, which I do regularly myself .
I feel the only way their monitoring my progress is based entirely on how many times I go back to the surgery, I have had my inhaler changed Four times over the last 7 mths, usually by 'shall we try this one' based only on what I tell them as to how I'm feeling , I'm generally concerned the amounts are increasing with every change which I feel is just a 'ok well lets try this one next at a higher dose' ! doesn't sound right to me.
I was changed two months ago to Flutiform from Seretide because of the cost, now this is not holding me for twelve hours , I'm back coughing evening and first thing in morning. I would welcome your comments greatly.
