    I don't know about this one, I've only been on it for less than 2 weeks, but I have to clear my throat constantly, have a sore throat and I get extremely tired hours after taking it. I take 250/50, 80mcg of Qvar and Spiriva. Never had asthma until now and was very active til a month ago,now I can't do anything. As a matter of fact earlier this year doctors said I didn't have asthma ... Show Full Comment

    I vas diagnosed with asthma and given Advair to help control the need for my rescue inhaler. Within 3 days my lungs were inflamed and irritated. I had to stop immediately and begin steroids and antibiotics to clear up my lungs. 8 weeks later I am still dealing with the effects of Advair. Cannot take that again.
