    My asthma was well-controlled for years on this drug, until they switched to the Redi inhaler. I've had to use the rescue inhaler more times this year than I had the previous 10. Will have to try a different medication from a different manufacturer. This inhaler is dangerous. I'm an adult, can't imagine how a parent would tell whether a child is getting his medication.

    It worked very well for me before they went to the redi-haler. Now, it is difficult to use and I can't get a proper dose. I end up having to use my rescue inhaler several times a day. Kind of defeats the purpose of the inhaled steroid. I'm going to talk with my doc about finding a different medication.

    I do not understand why they changed this medicine. My 7 year old is having difficulties with this medicine. I am going to have to change to another medicine for controlling her asthma.

    I too have had more problems with the new inhaler. My asthma is acting up after years of no problems. Such a disappointment.

    Who can we contact about this new design? I asked my pharmacy with no suggestions. The new design fails to gove a proper dose by about 30 inhalation uses. It either puffs out a huge amount or it comes out very slowly, longer than I can inhale. I Will have to chance drugs because this one is scary to use. You chat depend on the correct dose.
