    Drugstore switched me to Wixela in April (same copay).when I began wheezing after several years with no symptoms I didnt connect it to the medicine change. After 4 or 5 months of getting worse I finally realized the connection. Had my doctor issue rx with no substitutes and my wheezing quickly went away. Do not want. Keeping my Advair

    If I can give it 0 stars, I will. Since taking this drug for the last 5 months, I�ve lost control of my asthma, and I�ve been having to use a rescue inhaler. I�ve developed what seems to be oral thrush with localized toothache. While the thrush went away for the most part after stopping Wixela, I am now taking anti-fungal m ... Show Full Comment

    Iâ??m an asthma patient who has successfully used advair for many years (20?). Itâ??s made a huge difference. My insurance switched me to Wixela and I got very sick while using it. The way I have in the past if Iâ??d missed a dose or two of advair. Iâ??m really not sure if wixela contains the same meds and the same quality of meds as the advair. But if the problem isnâ??t ...

    Insurance switched me to Wixela from Advair 3 months ago . Initially I was pleased by the lower copay, but within a few days began wheezing. I've had asthma since birth, and it has been well controlled by Advair for 10 years now, and figured I must be having a bout of hay fever. Then the lever on the Wixela hub jammed, so I used an old Advair that had a remaining dose. By that evening I realiz ... Show Full Comment
