Perhaps: If your symptoms and pulmonary functions continue to be well controlled at the one spray twice daily dose, you may be able to use less medication. You need to watch for increased symptoms and any decrease in your health status. Contact your doctor if you are not doing well.

See below: I would do my best to stay on advair. Dulera doesn't work near as well in my opinion.
