Phillip, question on powder in inhaler; to my knowledge if it is powder it is Advair not Symbicort! I liked Advair, but started getting colds within a month of starting on it. Doc shook her head and switched me to Symbicort which I found more coarse than Advair but after adding a spacer I had no more problems and it seems to work well!

I'd have a word with your GP or respiratory nurse maybe the powder residue is staying in your mouth try rinse moth out after using inhaler ? I must admit I seemed be. Having constant thrush in mouth I buy the very small coke bottles anf rinse mouth with the coke it stings but as really helped , I don't drink fizzy pop so just rinsed with it

Symbicort caused me to have irregular heartbeat so I was changed to Tudorza

I have just come back from the doctors and the chemist suggested I take one puf of salamol befor I take [[treatment:symbicort:54b5b0f408c929ed[[phone:16000434]] 200:]] as I cannot get a deep enough inhalation first time you know it worked and I'm on salamol and [[treatment:symbicort:54b5b0f408c929ed[[phone:16000434]] 200:]] the 400 is ok but I can't get a deep enough inhalation so it's better for me to take [[treatment:symbicort:54b5b0f408c929ed[[phone:16000434]] 200:]] I can have more inhalations I am happy now try it
