Not normal: There is study showing that the size of the medicine mist can reach further into the lung with Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) than advair. Thus it is reasonable to try switching back for a couple of weeks and see if this may do the trick. If not helpful, then you should really check with your doctor regarding modifying your medication program.
