I've been advised a couple of months ago that I most probably have asthma. I was given a blue Easyhaler (salbutamol sulphate) as I've never taken an inhaler before and it is suppoed to be easy but I have found I have to take in such a harsh breath which is difficult when I am having trouble breathing. I wanted to know if anyone else has this issue? I have also last week been given a brown inhaler to reduce the inflammation (Qvar breath activated with a gas cannister and flip lever on the top) and this is much easier to take, although tastes disgusting and even if I wash my mouth out straight after I feel nauseous and can taste it for hours after. I was wondering if this foul taste is the gas or the actual medication? I'd like to find the best inhalers for me but am not really sure what is out there.
