Can Flovent, advair or albuterol cause severe tingling, prickliness and itchiness? Are these any of the side effects? Thanks

Probably not: What you described is more likely hyperventilation syndrome except for the itching. These drugs are more likely to cause tremor and occasionally muscle cramps and not the symptoms you have described. Uncontrolled asthma may cause hyperventilation which may cause the tingling and "prickliness" sensation. Although allergy to steroid itself has been reported, it it mostly related to contact allergy

Unusual: Hi Amanda, these symptoms would be very unusual in relation to your asthma medications as long as you are using them in the recommended doses.
