Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@Mother hucker, I don’t know, but walk into an Apotheke first thing tomorrow and ask. They are generally only open in the mornings on Saturdays so go early, but if you need to see a doctor they might be able to direct you to someone.

I expect you’ll be able to get an emergency one at a pharmacy. If you have evidence of a repeat prescription in your NHS app, it might help.

It is very overused. Part of our current workload is ensuring asthmatics are on the appropriate treatment and only using Ventolin less than three times a week.

In the 15+ years since I switched my preventer from Becotide (which never worked for me in the preceding 15 yrs) to Sereride, and subsequently Flutiform (Fluticasone) at my doc’s suggestion, I have hardly ever needed Ventolin (Salbutamol). It really has been life changing. It has also improved my enjoyment of skiing holidays.

Why is it so bad for you? I try not to use mine, but do quite a bit during hayfever season. And is salamol equally as bad? (I don't think I've had an actual ventolin inhaler for years)

@Timmycb5,

Ventolin is the brand name, salbutamol is the generic name.

Like
Nurofen/ibuprofen
Panadol/paracetamol
Anadin/aspirin

Etc

And don’t get me started on inhaler use technique, I can bore for England on that one Laughing

@NE1, Ah ok, cheers. I wondered if there was a difference when there was a big change in the blue inhalers about 4/5 years back. Thought it might be a different drug.

Why is it so bad though? What does it do?

I've bought prescription medicine (without one) over the counter in Austria after a pleading chat to the pharmacist.

Flutiform has a terrible carbon footprint due to the propellant it uses. There are other inhaler devices with fluticasone you can use, Dry Powder Inhalers (DPI) tend to be much better, perhaps ask your practice once again. (practice nurses/practice pharmacists can often be better to ask than the GP)

@Timmycb5, salbutamol forces the small airways open as wide as they can, so you can get some air into the alveoli where your blood can take up oxygen. Asthma is hyper-reactivity to a stimulus (cold, polluted air, pollen etc), causing thickening of the tube walls and secretion of mucus, which leads to narrow tubes. If you force open the tubes without dealing with the cause, it’s a bit like hammering on the brakes, while the accelerator is still down. If you keep doing it, things wear out. Steroids, often mixed with a long acting version of salbutamol, suppress the whole cascade of events, leading to fewer episodes which in turn stops long term and recurring inflammation, which then means less scarring and normal-ish lungs for much longer.
