Does anyone here have ashma and take the brown inhaler daily? Have you ever had a change in voice as in croaky voice if so what’s has been the cause? Any advice gratefully appreciated

Thanks in advance xx

Hello, I get a croaky voice & my asthma nurse has advised me to always gargle with some water after. I also use a spacer device which means that when you inhale it doesn’t hit the back of your throat which tends to create the croakiness. Asthma Uk has some good information on it’s website & it’s worth talking to your asthma nurse as well. Hope that helps!

I used to take 2 puffs morning & evening like yourself but unfortunately my asthma has worsened & I’ve had to go up a couple of inhalers. Fingers crossed it continues to be occasional. x
