Discussions that mention proventil

Asthma board

for many years now i have been taking proventil repetabs. Well the company i get my prescriptions through apparently contacted my doctor and got him to ok a switch to Volmax ER tabs. I personally thought that was kinda weird but figured doctor knows best....

the thing is....lately i've been having more problems than usual. it is allergy season for me, but it hasn't been this bad for years (i'm averaging one attack per week for the last month or so). This is around the same time i switched pills. would it be possible that the volmax just doesn't work for me like the proventil? why would my doctor ok that if that was the case? i'm kinda confused here!
