Medical ID bracelets/pendants??????

hi again, i was just wondering whether asthmatics should wear medical ID bracelets or pendants? when i had a severe attack last week the ambulance crew did ask if i wore one so that they could see what medication i was on, also now people at school are asking whether i have one or not because i scared a lot of them! i did ask my mum but she said she didnt know so i was just wondering....... oh and im on beclazone 300mg 2xday and salbutamol as needed and only pred when asthma is bad if that helps. thanks x

Re: Medical ID bracelets/pendants??????

I have one, but I have hypoglycemia and reflux disease also. My id says RAD, so I should get a new one that says asthma. Anyways, I got mine of ebay. They are too small to write meds on, so you can put "wallet card" on it, then have a wallet cards with meds. My last severe attack I wish I would have had my meds listed, because I did not want to talk. I have a link to a website that will generate the card, but I know links need to be approved. How do I go about doing that?
