Have been using this inhaler for nearly three years and actually don't find it very useful anymore. Having said that I do have another condition and it may well be that this is working quietly in the background but in such a way that it's not particularly noticeable. However I have never had any side effects from it which is a big win-win and is simple to take. Good luck as it is well worth a try.

Don't be scared to try it, I think as inhalers go this is a good one and it's just me with my conditions changing that It could well be losing its efficacy. Am trying to sort this out at the moment. I think your brother has been given Ventolin in the blue container (or Salamol which is the genetic version) and this is a rescue inhaler to be used when short of breath and need something to act quickly. I was given Ventolin as well but didn't have to use it at all for about two years whilst using the Ultibro, but now I do have to sometimes. The Ultibro is a long lasting preventer.

There is a leaflet inside the box telling you all about this inhaler, or you can Google it. As I said before I didn't suffer any side effects so don't remember, sorry!

Not any I’ve identified whereas others did, think I’ve tried all available, but we are all different, what suits one person may cause issues for others.
