If you have asthma, our fully-trained staff can offer you free, confidential advice on how to control your symptoms and get the most out of your medicines.
This is a free service that requires no need to book an appointment.
Asthma is a condition that affects the airways in the lungs. These get inflamed and then they become narrow and start to swell, reducing airflow. Sometimes phlegm is produced which narrows the airways even more and makes it difficult to breathe.
The most common symptoms are:
Coughing, especially first thing in the morning and at night
Getting short of breath
Feeling tight in the chest
If you notice your asthma symptoms becoming worse and you answer ‘yes’ to any of these three questions, your asthma may not be well controlled:
Have you had difficulty sleeping because of your asthma or cough?
Have you had symptoms like coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath or a tight chest during the day?
Has your asthma interfered with your normal everyday activities?
We can advise and support you on managing your asthma so you can get on and enjoy your life to the full.
Just pop into Kings Pharmacy for more information.
Ask the pharmacist to do a simple technique check to make sure you’re getting the most out of your inhalers. We will be more than happy to help. And make sure you have regular reviews with you doctor.
Always carry your reliever inhaler
It pays to have it on hand if you need it. It is better to use it at the first signs of wheezing than to wait for your breathing to get really bad.
We are able to supply you a salbutamol inhaler (blue inhaler) for a charge. Please visit us in store or call us for more details.
