beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (100) for Asthma

Thanks for this comment, I was beginning to think, am I only one with problems with this inhaler. Too often I suck and nothing goes in-which causes confusion, as I don't want to double dose. And the particles and grains used in the formula are to big. I am thinking of changing this inhaler for somethng else that is more efficient and regular.

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (6) for Asthma

Fostair works well when it works BUT the counter is useless! my current one has just run out with thee counter still reading 64 doses left. This happens with about half of the inhalers I use, It's easy to prove, when you inhale and are still struggling for breath open a new one and see the difference, instant relief, I believe this is either a design problem or a storage problem. Fostair is sup...

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (120mg) for Asthma

After trying a myriad of inhalers and tablets one the pst 40 years, my own other recommended Fostair. I spoke to my doctor about it and was promptly issued with it. As someone who has hay fever, dust and animal allergies, and an active exercise induced asthma I have been very used to getting to the end of my course of Beclomethasone preventative inhalers and having to time ordering the next pre...

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (100/6) for Asthma

Only been using this for four days for moderate and occasionally sever asthma, but during those four days I have not required my Ventolin or any other medicine (previously I was on Clenil and 1 x Montelucast at night. I take 2 puffs in the morning and 2 in the evening before going to bed. I have allergic swell as exercise induced asthma, and so far I am extremely impressed with the efficacy of ...

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (200 micrograms) for Asthma

Have been using this Inhaler for 3 months for chronic Asthma, Bronchiectasis and ABPA. Probably the most inefficient giving system I have ever encountered. When unwell its difficult to inhale this deeply into lungs. A lot ends up in your mouth and particles feel large. I don't think very much is ingested into my lungs at all and I wonder if trials used healthy individuals with excellent peak fl...

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (100/6) for asthma

I have had mild asthma for over 30 years(I'm 64) and have always used brown and blue inhalers. Brown preventers never really worked so I used 3 to 4 puffs of the reliever a day. Three months ago my new GP prescribed Fostair and from the first puff I have had no wheeziness at all, not even a trace of it. GP prescribed 4 puffs a day which I cut down to 2 after a month then to just one. Occasiona...

salbutamol sulfate (100ug/do) for asthma

I've been on Ventolin 100 for 30 years now. Sometimes 3 times a day sometimes once a day if I need it. I live in Holland and cross the border into Belgium to get the medicine there otherwise I end up with salbutamol and the pharmacists who don't have asthma seem to know better than the asthma patients themselves and salbutamol doesn't work for me. I'd rather pay a bit more for something that wo...

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (100) for asthma

Foster inhaler. Since I was switched from Sererite to Foster my coughing, okay let's say cough attacks have increased dramatically. I didn't initially think that it was anything to do with this medicine but now I've switched back to seretide 50/500 and my cough has got a lot better. So now I just need to find something for breathlessness...

ketotifen hydrogen fumarate (1mg) for asthma

I take zaditen 1 mg for my asthma. Haven't had any asthma attacks for a couple of months and I'm no longer an asthmatic. Wheezing in bed has also drastically reduced. Not sleepy, but definitely an increased appetite, but there always has to be something, I guess.

montelukast sodium (10mg) for asthma

After trying anything and everything, the lung consultant prescribed me 10 mg Montelukast. I've definitely noticed that I'm coughing less and I'm less short of breath.

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (6mg/100mg/do) for asthma

After Seretide, the lung specialist moved me on to Foster. While I find the inhaler awkward because there's no counter on it, the medicine itself is good: since I've been using it I haven't had any asthma attacks. What is irritating though is the idea that (and it's been listed as a possible side effect) I'm really hoarse and that I've got a frog in my throat. But, fair enough, better than asthma.

budesonide, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (100/6ug/do) for asthma

Recently switched from Relvar to Symbicort. What a fantastic medicine! Little if any side effects and as far as my lung function is concerned, over 90% when I have 2 puffs a day. I would recommend this to everyone.

doxycycline hyclate (100mg) for asthma

I'm asthmatic. A cold followed by a prednisolon cure and a week of doxycyline didn't have the required effects. I'm still coughing and wheezy. A chest x-ray was taken, still waiting for results.

formoterol fumarate dihydrate (12ug/do) for asthma

After long-term use, more and more problems arose which were not directly traceable to atimos use. Only when I stopped taking this medication did a few of the side effects disappear. After a few years of use there were a few complaints and serious complications. 3 years later one after the other chest infections, concentration problems, skin problems and so on. After going back to my old medici...

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (6 ) for asthma

Once you have used about three quarters, Foster ampoule is no longer effective. You might as well throw away the last quarter. If I have to use part of the last quarter I just get short of breath.

fluticasone propionate, salmeterol xinafoate (25/250ug/do) for asthma

Been using this for ages (I've estimated the date) with absolute satisfaction. Since then hardly any reaction to anything that I'm allergic to and a lot fewer problems with my asthma. For mild irritations: 2×1 puff a day. If I get cold or I'm around things which I'm allergic to: 2×2 puffs a day.

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (100/6) for asthma

Had bad experiences with another asthma inhaler until I had a lung infection and figured it was time to try a new medicine (marketed as Foster or Fostex) and to start off with it seemed like my asthma was under control. The side effects I've had over a number of years are making me wonder if I shouldn't stop taking this one and start with something else. The side effects are: asthma symptoms wo...
