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 flows unlike mine at 250.

I completely agree! - I was taken off Fostair 'spray' inhaler & given Nexthaler powder form. Hate the experience!!! Counter is dangerously faulty, impossible to gauge amount ingested, and quite frankly I'm not convinced powder is fine enough to breath directly into lungs! So for me, I rely entirely on Salbutamol tried & trusted puffer. They need to sort this out!
