My 12-year old was put on Symbicort as his lungs were only working at 50%. In two weeks time, his breathing increased to 65%. Symbicort seems to be working and he has had no side effects so far.

I have been suffering with asthma for about 15 years. I breifly used advair (very effective, but the powder made my throat sound very hoarse when I spoke). I stopped that and the doctor gave me symbicort instead. With the symbicort I am able to sleep through the night without waking up to puff on a rescue inhaler. In fact, I breathe easy all day. Workouts are a breeze. I feel like the old me agai ... Show Full Comment
