Unlikely: The most common side effect of inhaled steroids, especially over such a short period of time, would be oral thrush. Make sure your child rinses his mouth after using the inhaler to prevent this.

Just started dulera. Was on symbicort (budesonide and formoterol). Is side-effect profile similar? Any more likely to have sinus symptoms on dulera? How about cataracts?

Just started dulera. Was on symbicort (budesonide and formoterol). Is side-effect profile similar? Any more likely to have sinus symptoms on dulera? How about cataracts?

Very close: I don't think the side effect profile is any different between the two but the actual side effects will be depended on the total dose of steroid included. There is a minor risk for cataracts with any inhaled steroid but this is a minor issue when compared to uncontrolled asthma. As for response, some people do prefer one over another- a toss-up.

I've been taking Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) 80 for asthma for several weeks and I have been increasingly angry, depressed and anxious. Is this a normal side effect?

I've been taking Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) 80 for asthma for several weeks and I have been increasingly angry, depressed and anxious. Is this a normal side effect?

Possibly: This medication has a long acting agent similar to Adrenalin as a main component. Adrenalin is our natural stress hormone and readies our body for running away or fighting a threat. This may be something you are more sensitive to than desired. Talk your meds over with your doc and see if an alternate would be okay. Do not stop it without consulting your doc.

Phlegm in my throat and caugh so much my chest and back hurt &feel nauseous as a side effect from my inhaler. Is there anything I can do about it?

Phlegm in my throat and caugh so much my chest and back hurt &feel nauseous as a side effect from my inhaler. Is there anything I can do about it?

Asthma Exacerbation: Looks like you have an asthma exacerbation. If bronchodilator inhaler bricanyl (terbutaline) is not helping, you are coughing more, you need to see your doctor. You need an anti-inflammatory oral or inhaler. May be you have bronchitis also. Call for an appointment.

My doc put me on the advair inhaler. After using for a few days im stuffy and at night I feel like I've eat cotton. Is this a side affect to this?

My doc put me on the advair inhaler. After using for a few days im stuffy and at night I feel like I've eat cotton. Is this a side affect to this?

No and perhaps: Asthma inhalers should not lead to nasal congestion at night. (allergies certainly can.) inhalers can trigger cough and the propellant in the inhaler can taste funny and feel like a coating within the mouth, cause hoarseness etc especially if a person doesn't rinse and spit after using the inhaler. Using a holding chamber may decrease mouth side effects.

Does a budesonide inhaler work well?

Does a budesonide inhaler work well?

Yes: It should work if used properly and remember Budesonide is used as a controller but not as a reliever, that is it should be used every day to prevent asthma flare ups, albuterol is use as a reliever, that is it should be used when wheezing, having chest tightness etc...

I am advised to take 2-3 dosages of combihale fb 200 inhaler (budesonide-200mcg and formoterol-6mcg) 2 puffs each day. Is it safe for long term?

I am advised to take 2-3 dosages of combihale fb 200 inhaler (budesonide-200mcg and formoterol-6mcg) 2 puffs each day. Is it safe for long term?

Budesonide/formotero: I assume you are taking it for asthma. Long acting b2 agonists such as formoterol have a black box warning to increase the risk of death. It seems to be somewhat attenuated when taken along with a steroid formulation such as Budesonide as in your case. Most people do fine using this long term, though.
