Go back and ask why you have the inhaler. If it is simply a cold you may not need it. Find out. This is important - the prescription of an inhaler can significantly delay things.

I spoke with our local GP when my daughter was prescribed an inhaler for a cough/ cold/ URTI, by the Nurse Practitioner.He was unaware of the problem about the prescribing of inhalers for potential service recruits as was the Nurse.
Perhaps an article in the Lancet/RCN monthly mag written by someone suitably qualified may be of benefit.

Go on !5Jan - give me a drug which comes in a metered-dose inhaler which doesn't cause recruit medical issues. You're clearly an expert.

Do I give the long sarky explanation or point out that my post was very similar to yours?

Right, made up my mind.



My questions is similar to yours, do you have any serious objections or are you in a bad mood because you stepped on a plug?

He's probably in a mood because as a qualified Naval Doctor, he's fed up of listening to people like you spouting shite.

By the way i'm not in a bad mood, i just don't like know it all bellends.
