` We are changing your Asthma inhaler from Tiotropium / Spiriva to Braltus Zonda, as a cost effective measure.
They sent me a copy of the new medicine. The information sheet says ` the capsules will be in a bottle instead
of a foil strip .Anyone had that change of medicine.

They both deliver the same dose, there is no change to your treatment or dose .....this product is just as effective and more cost effective for NHS use.

But if you do have any problems using it then tell your GP.

Now i see what it is , it is an inhaler that you put powder in , not the normal throw away ones that dispense a liquid dose, so it is nothing to do with what goes in it just the actual inhaler. Not in favour of powder , but if that is what suits , then ok

Hi Man of Kent smile.png

I had that change months ago and most of the time I'm managing fine but I occasionally find it difficult having enough puff to inhale the powder. That's just me, you might have no problems.
