Comment:
Kept my asthma at bay, and reduced use of emergency inhaler. Side effects come along with it, for me at least. Insomnia, Intense dreams, joint pain, sinus congestion, slight sore throat (if you don't rinse after use) and irritability (angry). Cannabis is way better. I could smoke cannabis at night, and be fine throughout the next day.

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.

Comment:
I did notice an improvement in lung function while I was on it, but I also started getting terrible bouts of nausea, several times a day (definitely not pregnate). 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.
