If your pump is not helping David you should probably see your GP. Or give the BLF nurses a ring tomorrow on 03000 030 555.

Hi David, I would advise you to go to your GP if your meds are not giving you relief.

Please don't suffer unnecessarily. Go to the surgery & see what can be done for you.

Let us know how you get on please 🌸

Hi David do you have a preventer inhaler such as symbicort or Fostair etc. as well as a reliever? I agree with mrsmummy that you need to see your doctor or nurse as taking so much ventolin is a sign that your condition isn't being properly controlled. x

Yes i have fostair which i take 2 in morning 2 at night and if i get to bac in the day i will take it again

It sounds like the Fostair is either no longer effective enough or the dose needs increasing. See your doctor/nurse.

Is it possible you have an undetected infection? x
