Ive never owned one of these (daughter has mild asthma, used one once at surgery when she was diagnosed) be great if someone could tell me if these are worth it for "back up" and what do you need to use them with them (medication wise?)

(She's on Clenil Modulite 50 2 x 2 a day and ventolin if needed.)

    To be honest, the best thing is to ask your daughter's GP as they're familiar with the specifics of her condition.

    The reason I say this is because there are a plethora of conditions that can cause asthma, and a nebuliser isn't suitable for all of them. For example, a nebuliser won't help if the asthma is aggravated by an allergic reaction (atopic) such as lactose intolerance or exposure to cat har.

    If you need one it will be prescribed by a medical professional.

    Good for hypochondriacs though.

    Has anyone used one of these?

    If the inhaler isn't working and your daughter is struggling to breathe so much that you think she needs a nebuliser, then it really isn't worth endangering her health to try and treat yourself! You need to either call and ambulance or get down to A&E quick!!

    hi there,

    It could actually be counterproductive. You might either be treating a mild condition with inappropriately high dose of medication ( one nebuliser ampoule is 2.5 or 5mg while a puff of inhaler is 100 or 200 microgram) or you could be led into a false sense of security where the patient might actually be bad enough to need ambulance and you might think you don't need to call the ambulance as you have a nebuliser.
    If considered appropriate, it is always issued by the NHS to the patient along with repeat prescription for nebuliser medication that you cannot buy over the counter.

    cheers

    If the GP has decided that the condition needs the patient to have permanent access to a nebuliser, then so long as this unit meets the required specifications for dosage then buy one to either have as an emergency spare or to have in separate locations.

    One of these saved my sons life, without he wouldn't be alive. Stopped breathing at 2 months old (not through asthma but a combined heart condtion and respiratory virus) called the ambulance and this was the only thing that kept his airways open long enough for the ambulance to get here.

    Otherwise I dread to think what the outcome would of been.

    Wow eton thats pretty remarkable, thank god it worked out for you.
    I would advise OP to visit the GP as over-treating a mild condition can lead to physical and psychological problems

    My son has mild asthma as well and i'm half thinking of getting one of these, i steam the bathroom up when he is chesty to try and ease his cough but he was many sleepless nights as he can't stop coughing, been to gp a few times in a couple of weeks, taken antibiotics etc and he's no better.
    Oh and this is a non smoking house and always has been!!

    I would not need to use this hardly ever. It is just for back up incase the unthinkable happened. I wouldnt use it unless she was having major trouble breathing. Like when she first started breathing fast/wheezing (we didnt know why) and coughing at night, took her to the doc & nurse who gave her 10 mins on a nebuliser. She started breathing normally and wheeze was gone completely. Its a very scary situation - i wish I had the condition myself instead of her but for £20..I'd rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.

    Is your son on inhalers at all? My daughter coughed for months until the brown inhaler kicked in and she didnt cough for ages, we stupidly relaxed the brown in the summer (thinking she didnt need it anymore) then started coughing again at night. When she gets a cold and gets blocked nose the asthma gets worse, so we were told to increase the brown/clenil puffs which did help but it takes a few days to kick in.

    He's on both the same inhalers as your daughter, when he takes the clenil one he goes into a coughing fit and ends up retching like he's going to be sick, he's been taking them on and off for yours, each doctor i see has a different opinion on wether he needs it or not :|

    All three of my children have had infantile asthma and have needed a nebulizer at some point but it would be pretty
    Useless without the steroids to put in it wudnt it an u need to go to the doctors to get these anyway if I could get the medication this would be great to have in the house as often a cold can turn into them being very wheezey during the night
    nicoamy
    Steph mcd my daughter always has a coughing fit after the inhaler I think it's the airways opening my daughter has a cold at the minute so we increase the brown to two puffs morning and night and lots of blue as and when and touch wood no hospital visits yet

    Customer services just advised me this was sold out within the first day at nearly all stores. Now no stock nationwide but will run this again in the next 3-6months as so popular.
