I have PCD, my 6 year old son has asthma, I had a puff of his brown inhaler today as my chest was feeling a bit tight and I feel a lot better. It got me wondering. . . Should I be using inhalers as a standard thing with PCD?? Do other people? I have memories of being given them as a child but not for many years and I havent been prescribed an inhaler since becoming an adult, I 37 now.

Hiya - it’s worth talking to your consultant about them. Some people use ventolin the blue inhaler before physio to help open up the airways to make it easier to clear their airways.


What type of physician diagnosed you with PCD?


I believe a paediatric consultant when i was 3 years old, 34 years ago now so I am not sure, he might have been called Dr Meyer.
