I've been using this for a while but I am still coughing and using my ventolin the same as before but I am on so many different pills wouldnt know if I was taking the wrong ones as nobody seems to be bothered as being a coeliac nobody tells me if they contain gluten or wheat because nobody seems to know what coeliac is especially not in pilgrim hospital nurses in Lincolnshire or surgeries ,skegness nobody checks if it is safe they just perscibe medication but never check to see if it is safe for coeliacs and that also goes for the Pfizer injection they just give itto you

Only just started to use this for my emphysema copd at the moment it is easy to use I just helps it stop my breathing problems was given this with the N H S rehabilitation exercise as I was breathing really bad and I was very breathless had 3 chest infections so they put me on this it does help more but I have to take this with my seretide and salbutamol as well in the morning you have to put a capsule in shut it up then press button in that breaks the capsule then you have to breath out then breath this in till you feel it vibrate when you cant feel it then you throw capsule away and do the same every morning.
