This drug has worked to semi-control my asthma symptoms but I am unsure it is worth the cost and side effects.

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.
