I've had asthma for my entire life, and have been medicated for it for the past 18 years. Before the Symbicort, I was on Advair. I was constantly hoarse and coughing, and my results began to be worse. So, onto the Symbicort, which did seem to help...for a while. Now, I am only slightly better than I was with the Advair, and I have some unpleasant symptoms that may be from this medication. ... Show Full 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.

Was on Advair 250 and more often 500 for many years. Symbicort is great. My question is whether you can have therapeutic benefit at 1 puff 2x/day versus 2 puffs 2x/day. Thoughts?

This is the best asthma proactive treatment I've ever used. One small problem - $150 for 120 inhalations (approx 60 datys) is outrageous. Obviously, it is only the very rich that deserve to survive.

Comment:
Have had asthma for three years, and had been on Advair with the side effect of recurrent thrush if I used more than one dose of Low-dose Advair a day. My asthma was getting worse, and my Allergist's NP put me on Symbicort. I use one puff twice a day and have not had to use my rescue inhaler since I started Symbicort. the one problem I did have when I started the med was severe thrush, but I w ... Show Full Comment
