Asthma patients warned in a hurry for British inhaled deficiency


Asthma patients have received urgent advice about an inhalation deficiency in the UK.

5.4 million people in the UK are currently treating asthma treatment: 1.1 million children (1 in 11) and 4.3 million adults (1 in 12).

Asthma prevalence is considered to have plateau since the late 1990s.

But Britain still has some of the highest prices in Europe and on average 3 people per day die of asthma.

Worries, Bricanyl Turbohaler users have been told stocks are low and charity Asthma UK says that it may be a few weeks before the supply is strengthened.

Asthma UK urges Bricanyl Turbohaler users to control their access to medicines.

When this is clear, those involved should make an appointment with a practitioner to get a recommendation on an option before they end.

Asthma UK also reports that patients should continue to take their preventive inhaler and "try not to worry".

Dr. Andy Whittamore, Asthma UK's interns, wrote: "If you use a Bricanyl Turbohaler as a relief device for your asthma, we need to know that the stocks are very low in the UK right now.

"This does not affect all Turbohalers – just Bricanyl ones.

"Manufacturers have confirmed that it is likely that there will be a few weeks (from November 2018) without delivery – but they are working to get the production line up and running as quickly as possible."
