Anyone know how many puffs of salbutamol you take when using the inhaler with a spacer? I haven't thought the inhaler was working for me for ages and have been using a nebuliser for delivery but my respiratory nurse is encouraging me to try again and not use the nebuliser as apparently the receptors in your lungs can get 'flooded'. I googled this and came up with - what d'you know? - the HU asthma forum where I found a long discussion, with the most prevalent opinion being that this is correct.
So I've just taken five puffs, breathing in and out 5 times. Is this about right?
Thanks all, and thanks so much for fabulous response on other post, so many useful suggestions. Hope everyone's as well as possible today. I am a little better and everyone's replies helped me get through yesterday
