I have just changed my medication from Symbicort to Fostair having just had my yearly spirometry done and being very disappointed with the results my therapist asked If I would like to try Fostair as they were getting good results with it, it has been a week now I have used the new inhaler and I am finding my breathing to be much easier and I am lasting longer between doses while I am still of course out of breath I do feel it is an improvement I have been on Sybicort for about 10 years and felt it was my life line but lately just wasn't giving me enough. I have just googled Fostair and bounced around abit on other sites and came across the asthma site on health unlocked and find it is prescribed for asthma also and reading further reports there were a lot of bad reviews for Fostair side affects not great for some patients and we are all different I always say don't knock it till you have tried it, what works for one doesn't necessarily work for another have to say it works for me so far I know it's early days just one week so far but fingers crossed ( seem to do a lot of that these days ) the other gripe was some patients felt they were being forced to use a cheaper alternative. I just wondered what my COPD friends thought on the matter as I have come to trust you all and think you make a lot of sense I have certainly learnt a lot since I joined. Any one else on Fostair . 😚
