Been prescribed an inhaler for a persistent cough. Reading the blurb that accompanies it, it is stated that you shouldn't use it in conjunction with beta blockers i.e. propranalol. I take 10mg of this twice a day as a migraine preventer. Should I take the inhaler or not? Why didn't my GP say anything when prescribing the inhaler??

There is, or may be, a drug interaction between Salbutamol and betablockers....may.........in some people.

I would assume that the salbutamol is only for a short time.....I would not hesitate in combining the two drugs for a short period of time.

\\ Why didn't my GP say anything when prescribing the inhaler??\\

He obviously didn't consider...

Give the surgery a quick call now to clear this up - may be just a timing issue. Best to check.
