Followed a link to patient.co.uk to inhalers for asthma shown on this site as a helpful link.
A section on this information said this......
Other breath-activated inhalers are also called dry powder inhalers. These inhalers do not contain the pressurised inactive gas to propel the drug. You don't have to push the canister to release a dose. Instead, you trigger a dose by breathing in at the mouthpiece. Accuhalers, clickhalers, easyhalers, novolizers, turbohalers, diskhalers and twisthalers are all breath-activated dry powder inhalers.
You need to breathe in fairly hard to get the powder into your lungs.!!!!!!
Some types are shown below.
ACCUHALER, TURBOHALER, DISKHALER
I am on the Accuhaler & Turbohaler & don't feel as though I actually get a dose... reading the article, I am now wondering why an inhaler which exerts my lungs has been prescribed to me.. or am I missing something..
Yet another thing on my list to discuss with my locum doctor.. :-p..
