I've been taking Pulmicort for several years now, and it has allowed me to keep my asthma under control where other medications failed.

My Dr. put me on this medication and my BP increased. I go off of it and my BP returns to normal. I have asked to try other medications and he tells me to keep using the Pulmicort. I will only use it for a couple of weeks at a time when I am despirit for relief.
