I have been wondering if I would benefit from a nebuliser. I have seen them on sale in Lloyds. How bad do I have to be?? Have a good break. XX

Chat to your GP pergola and see if a nebuliser might help you. Do let us know if you get one. Xxxx

No point in getting a nebuliser unless you are certain your gp will prescribe meds for it.

I do have a nebuliser and it was gp that recommended it to me. Mainly so I can avoid lots of trips to A&E. For me it means that I feel more in control of my situation.

However some GPs do refuse to prescribe meds for it.

Speak to your gp

Thanks all. Recently, paramedics came in answer to breathing problems, and used a neb which I found good. xx

Hi.....you are so right ... After a really bad infection some years ago

I bought a nebuliser ......it's been in the box ever since ... Our.GP don't like patients to have their own .....but I shall keep it , you never know Gp's can change and the next one approve. 😏.

It seems lots of people use them daily and they are a real help, why would doctors not want people to have them?

Hi .. would imagine it could be to do with keeping it clean and getting right the dosage ........ They all have their own likes & dislikes. We are only the patient.

Some gps concerned that patients won't ask for help in an emergency because using nebuliser and therefore could be dangerous.

Like I said in my case having nebuliser gives me more control of situation.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday! I know the planning can be stressful. We recently had to fly for the first time since my husband has been on oxygen and it was SO stressful getting everything arranged. But everything went off without a problem and we had a wonderful time getting away. Have fun!
