Have you already stopped your old inhalers? If so I would speak to your doc again asap to get your lungs checked.
I have heard of other people who have had it suggested to them by the medical professional that they do not need their steroid inhaler and given a different prescribed medicine, one person was told inhaled steroids don't help their lung condition. Of course in some peoples cases no doubt this will be the case and mostly we have to be guided by what our own doctors recommend to us.
What has been a concern to me is that of the cases I have heard about where the steroid inhaler was withdrawn, the persons have experienced an exacerbation / lung infection and in the end have returned to their previously prescribed medication.
I know for some when the docs change their inhaler meds they do really well on the new inhaler med/s.
I do wonder sometimes... and this is purely my own view, the reason a person is stable for so long may just be that the medicine they are /were prescribed is suited to them and is working for them. If its not broke ..
If on the other hand there is another health reason the doctor wishes to take their patient off the inhaled steroid then I really think the doctor should explain that properly.
Hope your lung health improves soon and whatever medicine you are prescribed works as well as your previous prescription did.
One inhaler a day would be great
but sometimes one inhaler combo is just not enough or just is not suited to everyone, thankfully there are other options..
Do keep us updated how things go, I would be interested if you stick with your new inhaler medicine, and what your new inhaler medicine is called?
Best wishes and Be well.
