    I had to switch from my previous inhaler because it was discontinued. I tried most of the newer ones without success, made me sick. so my allergist started me on a trial of alvesco which has been much better overall. I also have COPD so I still don't have complete freedom from symptoms, but, along with my rescue inhaler, I have fewer problems. my main complaint is the cost, especially since I ...

    I have noticed when I get down to 10 puffs left on the counter, I seem to be getting less medicine and more propellant. I have to buy a new inhaler, since my symptoms are not well controlled after I've used it down to 10 puffs.

    ADVAIR nearly killed me literally. So now I am on Alvesco. The tremors, nervousness, tingling in the face, gastro bloating and pain, and instant headache scare me. My entire body feels tingly whether I wake up or go to bed only after one two days of use. I don't know what to do.

    I switched from asmanex to alvesco and could not be happier. When I was on the asmanex, I was using the albuterol practically on a daily basis. Since the switch I use it only now and then. Much less airway reactivity. I have been on quite a few steroid inhalers over the years and I love alvesco! My results have been amazing.

    I was gaining weight, couldn't see my ankles where my feet and legs were so swollen. Sore throat all the time, even though I rinsed with water after as instructed. When taking the night time one it did cause acid reflux. I had heart palpitations and just felt generally unwell on it. Have stopped for 3 weeks, the swelling in my legs has completely gone, I can see my ankles again and the wei ... Show Full Comment
