Comment:
Symbicort started out good. It immediately opened my airwaves more so than Advair. But after 3 days, I developed a cough with phlegm. This continuously got worse. But since I didn't have to use my rescue inhaler very much, I continued taking Symbicort. Headaches began, fatigue, ear congestion, horrible taste, and general poor feeling. Finally after 10 days, I got extremely sick with fever, ch ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was diagnosed with Asthma just over a year ago, I first tried Advair but soon lost my voice almost completely. The doctor changed me to Symbicort and it worked amazingly. Now that I have been on it for about 7 months, it seems to not be working quite as well. I am on the low dose at 2 puffs 2x a day. I am now coughing much more and using my inhaler much more often.
