Comment:
After a significant amount of time on this medication, I had significant heartburn and developed very paranoid thoughts. This is totally unlike my normal nature. In addition, I had been struggling with short term memory loss. I had not connected it to asmanex, however, within 2 weeks of stopping it, I regained my short term memory capacity.

I haven't taken the medication regularly, but within a couple days of starting the medication again I get terribly nauseous (sp?). My biggest complaints with this drugs is nausea and slight insomnia.

Comment:
Began using Asmanex in March 2013 to treat asthma. It took a few weeks for me to notice improved lung function, and I still have a ways to go to have "normal" function for my age.
