Q.

What is the name of the broken capped pump paired with Asthavent?

Hi there, I was diagnosed with asthma when I was 11/12. I have been using Cipla's asthavent ever since. It was paired with another pump that came in a brown cap. I haven't been to the doctor in over 6 year because I had been feeling better that I even stopped using the pump in brown which I was supposed to use in the mornings & eves. However, Lately I have been having attacks and I have forgotten the brown pump and I would like to make an over the counter purchase. Please help me out with the name?

The brown inhaler is your preventer and is critical for the treatment of asthma.  Unfortunately this cannot be bought over the counter and you will need to see your GP or visit the clinic for a prescription.  Your asthma has returned and it will likely worsen if you do not take the brown inhaler.
