I have to take 3x2 puffs a day but that’s fine because it means I don’t need the Ventolin. It’s supposed to give 120 inhalations but I find I get much more than that. I’m happy to have transferred to it as it has helped with cycling enormously. I’ve not had a bad attack all through 2019. Hope it has same effect for you. Yvonne
That's good news.
The doc told me that this inhaler is a 21st Century inhaler, suggesting the the one I've been using for longer than I can remember is old hat and not good enough these days.
My chest is getting slowly better now. On steroid tablets too at the moment. Been down with a heavy clod for weeks which seems impossible to shift and apart from getting congested in the head, it's gone to my chest. It'll be a long way back out of all this, but I'm optimistic that by the weekend it'll be behind me. ....................... Fingers crossed!

The stated dosages, there is never 200 doses in an inhaler, I find with asthma though it can
Chop and change, you get used to one inhaler and then it becomes less effective so you tend
To use more ? My annual review is at the start of Feb so meds could change again.....
This sounds right to me. Getting used to one specific inhaler seems like many things in life that you get used to. It's good to change.
