    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. I no longer sigh in attempts to get deep breaths, and getting deep breaths/enough air has become much easier. Overall I think the twisthaler is easy to use. I have not had issues with the powder being left b ... Show Full Comment

    This drug has worked to semi-control my asthma symptoms but I am unsure it is worth the cost and side effects. I was able to finally get the drug free through a Prescription Assistance Program, as I do not have prescription insurance coverage. I have appreciated the effectiveness of the drug but am now wondering if it is the cause of my headaches and ringing in the ears. Anyone else noticed con ... Show Full Comment

    My daughter takes asmanex every time she gets a cold. She uses it for about a week and the hacking cough stops. She gets illness induced asthma and this has been the only thing that has helped. It knocks the cough right out. I have not noticed any side effects with this medication but she only takes it for about a week at a time.

    Was prescribed this after Qvar failed to keep my symptoms away. Took a few days to get used to the dry powder inhalation. I gargle and brush after every use and have had no issues. It has kept my asthma symptoms pretty controlled except when I'm sick or my allergy triggers it. In fact I have not had to go on oral steroids since I started this in October 2012 which is a huge improvement for me. ... Show Full Comment

    This drug does not correct the basic symptom, i.e. breathing difficulty. It reduces it. A side effect however is that it produces a growth of heavy hair on my chin. The hair is not like normal facial hair -fine and fuzzy, it is thick and stubborn. I am having it removed but this is a common effect that should be made known.
