Hi

As most people know I am a severe asthmatic, I am currently waiting bronchial thermoplasty in Canada on a bunch of medications including symbicort, flovent, ventolin, atrovent, spiriva, theophylline, singulair, prednisone.
I went to fill my ventolin prescription at the pharmacy and they are now using a generic brand, I know it sounds weird but it doesn't work nearly as well - I am using double the amount to control my mild flares. I asked the pharmacist she said it was the same medication just different brand. I asked if I can go back to brand name but its not covered under Manitoba Health. Not that it is a huge expense but with all my other medication I am on I can barely afford all of it.
Anybody else notice a change or is it all in my head.
Bre
