Symbicort. it's the one reliever that doesn't give me panic attacks (thus undoing their own good) and being an preventative as well, i just have one in the house and one in my bag and they can do both jobs so i don't have to worry about which inhaler i have to get someone to grab for me. etc, etc.

it also has a newer, more accurate/easier to read doses left reader. it shows you numbers to the nearest 10... no more watching for the dreaded red patch.

I'm so glad to hear you found something that works for you. It's always nice to be able to breath right? :)

Hi Des, I too use symbicort and it has done wonders for my asthma.  I now can breathe freely.  I also have a rescue albuterol inhaler if I should get a sudden attack.  Keep in mind symbicort is a long term use inhaler and may not work for sudden asthma attacks which is why I also keep the albuterol.  Also, once you open the symbicort package and remove the inhaler from the foil it is only good for 3 months from the date you open the foil. So if you have 2 going you are likely to have to discard one after the 3 months.  Be sure to read all the directions that come in the package. Also, you have to keep the symbicort inhaler in an upright position at all times.  All info I got from my pulmonologist.  I hope this will help you in your use.  The inhalers can be expensive even with a copay from insurance. My dosage use is 2 puffs in the morning and 1 puff at night.  Tha maximun dose is 4 puffs a day, divided between morning and evening.  Symbicort has a great website you can go to to get further info and there are very nice people there is you want to call their toll free number.
