... I been on Advair for just 1.5 wk but it was already working. Then just yesterday i switched to symbicort (less side effects) but my attacks are back again.

So should i stick with advair even though i want to give symbicort a try? right now, i think if something... (5 replies)

... Okay, so I went and did my exercise challenge test again today. Here is what happened. The technician had me try to do the DLCO portion of the pulmonary function test since I could not perform it the last time. Again, I could not inhale deep enough for them to do the test. ... (10 replies)
