I'm going to pulmonologist next week for my asthma check up. Last time which was 3 months ago, she gave me symbicort which i think doesn't work on me at all. I don't get any relief from it so i use rescue inhaler and feel the difference immediately. I just wanted to ask if this is normal that symbicort didn't work on me but some other medicine will work? If so, I will ask my doctor to put me on a new one.
I didn't like this medicine from the very beginning. It has a rotating mouthpiece and coudn't figure out why it is rotating. I thought I did something wrong by rotating it when I first started using it. Any idea why it is rotating?
I have used Symbicort for three months. When I use rescue inhaler I feel the lightness in chest which I didn't feel with regular use of symbicort. So that is why I asked if this is a normal case and should change the medicine.

I have been using Sybicort for 3 months (one puff in the morning) and it has been fantastic.... before sybicort, i was using my reliever 2-3 times a day and was waking up wheezing, now, no wheezing and I only need the reliever before I run.
The one we get here in SA has a rotating bottom (the mouth piece also moves), which is used to load a dose into the inhaler part....
