Hi, I have been on Duo-resp for 2 years, its managed my asthma well, but for the last 8-10 weeks I've had a hoarse voice, I went to docs who thought it might be my job partly to blame (I'm a swimming teacher) but also could be my inhalers, she has booked me an app at the ENT clinic for January, and given me now 3 inhalers to take as an alternative! I have Alvesco (ciclesonide), to take once a day. Formoterol, to take twice a day, and back to my salbutamol inhaler as a reliever! 2 weeks later and my voice is no better, but my asthma seems to be worse! The nurse did say that it may not be as good for me as the Duo-resp, but didn't say what to do in that situation. My question is, can I, should I, switch back to Duo-resp without speaking to my doc? it's Christmas eve and obviously docs are closed now! I'm not happy with how I'm feeling with my asthma, but at the same time, I need my voice to recover! I appreciate any help and advice!
