    Have had varying degrees of asthma for over 50 years. This is the first preventive drug that has helped. The delivery system doesn't work well and could use improvement.

None of the steroid ... Show Full Comment

    Medicine works well but they seriously need to fix the capsule delivery system. Literally 50% of the time the capsule fails to spin in the cartridge. Very annoying and prevents proper dose.

    The only negative experience I have with the Foradil is the Aerolizer itself. Sometime when I insert the capsule, it may or may not puncture the capsule. I think it needs to be upgraded. But as far as the medication goes, it has done wonders for me. Thanks God for Merck..

    This medication was HORRIBLE for me. I had a massive negative reaction causing insomnia, panic attacks, and worsening of my asthma. I discontinued after 2 days. I highly, highly reccommend thoroughly discussing with your doctor other options. I am actually amazed that they placed me on this drug as I had heart palpitations with the Advair and they are in the same drug class. I am now on an anti-an ... Show Full Comment
