Because I have a lovely asthma component to my CF I get the joy of taking Advair. I like the stuff, I really do. I just have one little complaint. The makers of this medication had a great idea of having a medication countdown. So each time you take a puff of the medicine there is a little number countdown to let you know how many puffs you have left. As you approach the end of the diskus the little black countdown turns red, real nifty Advair people.
The problem lies in unobservant people who do a million of meds/treatments and really don't bother to look at this stupid countdown. Maybe if Advair was the only med in my routine I would religiously check my countdown, but alas I do a bazillion treatments/meds, plus take my prenatal vitamin and my ADEK and, and, and...so this leads us to last night. As I was throwing the Advair diskus in my bathroom drawer about to brush my teeth and go to bed I realized that my countdown showed a big fat red 0. My first though was, "Uhhh, how long has that been there? It could have just happened or it could have been like that for 2 weeks. We will never know. I think I need an Adviar diskus with an alarm or something. Anyone else have this issue or am I just really irresponsible?
