Has anyone experienced weight gain with Pulmicort? My son is very active and eats like a normal 12 yr old, but he continues to gain weight,especially around the middle. I hve found that weight gain is a side affect. He is fatigued and has a really stuffy/runny nose all of the time.

Works wonders for the asthma symptoms. I even forget that I suffer from it. The only negative that I have is I get thrush constantly (also with advair). I'm looking into something else because of it. I've had thrush over a dozen times while on this medicine. Bummer because it works so well.
