I was put on this for asthma since my inhalers were not doing the trick. Problem is that I am very sensitive to medications and I am only on day one an I am having severe arm and leg cramping, but on the plus side I am able to breath better. Doctor now put me on a lower dose hopefully this will help with the cramping
