... I've been trying to do extra reading online, and it seems to me that Symbicort would be the better medication because of it's fast relief time. Has anyone ever tested the two "head to head"? ... (10 replies)
... Mostly I think they just can't agree. Rinsing your mouth has always been and will be the best defense against thrush. Using a spacer doesn't mean you don't have to do that anymore. ... (10 replies)

... I am on Symbicort because I had a weird reaction to Flovent, and was put on Pulmicort thereafter. ... (10 replies)
... I wasn't aware that there was a problem with a spacer and the new HFA inhalers. I didn't see anything in the info papers at least, but I know they aren't comprehensive. ... (10 replies)
... Remember, it's very important that you rinse your mouth right after taking your medicine, every time. A spacer might help prevent thrush. Also, the inhaler Alvesco is less likely to cause thrush than other steroids, because of the way it's designed. ... (11 replies)
... I was on symbicourt 2 puffs twice per day. I found with it I was always coughing on it. Could have been dry throat or the long acting ventolin type med in it or so many puffs. My doctor told me to use it as my rescue inhalor so take it up to four more puffs each day. I've been through major cancer treatment last year so I was on high dose steroids and told to stop taking... (4 replies)
... With regards to the spacer delivery system, it does make a difference to how much of the steroid gets into your lungs. ... (10 replies)
... but the use of a spacer improves the amount of medication you get into your lungs. It also makes it easier for you if you don't have much puff!! ... (10 replies)

... I am on Symbicort too, but, like when I was on Advair, had recurring Thrush from the medicine so my doctor gave me a spacer. ... (8 replies)
... rior to diagnosis and ever receiving treatment. I recall early on, I had decided that the reason I hadn't completely responded to flovent was because I needed a spacer and my doc disagreed with me and started me on symbicort. I felt she was over treating me and tried for over a year to wean off the symbicort. ... (8 replies)
... I am new to all of this. When i asked the pulmonologist about a nebulizer, he said the albuterol will do and he is more confident with the symbicort than with the advair. ... (5 replies)
... I take my Symbicort at 9am and at 9pm everyday. ... (11 replies)
... Before I started using the nebulizer, I was using aerosol albuterol with a spacer (I also take symbicort via spacer); I did get shaky after using it with the spacer, but it never seemed to help my asthma. The nebulizer does, for some reason. I've had to use it again today (three times so far), and the side effects weren't so bad. A family friend uses a nebulizer, too, and... (5 replies)
... I take Symbicort with spacer. Works fine. ... (7 replies)
... I have been on this medication combo for over a year now. Problems only started recently. It's been feeling like 2hrs of taking the Symbicort.. my asthma is going crazy.. feel wheezy.. tight.. twitchy.. etc. It was bad to the point I need to take my rescue inhaler (bricanyl). I'm not sure if it is weather change right now or what.. my asthma isnt as bad as it was.. for 6... (11 replies)
... take my inhalers. So, I try to be ready in January! In the last couple weeks I felt a little wheezy, thought this was it, time to start prepping and would do my Symbicort inhaler. When I did it it automatically triggered my lungs to spasm and totally started coughing. ... (4 replies)
... Inhaled corticosteroids do not worsen acid reflux. Combination asthma meds like Advair or Symbicort can, but it's the bronchiodilator doing it, not the steroid. ... (3 replies)
... I really didn't think it would make any difference to wait until 9 o'clock to take my symbicort instead of taking it at 8-8.30 when I usually do (depending on how persnickety my lungs are being that night...) But the meeting ran late and DH wanted to eat afterwards so we didn't get home till 10. If I have to go out in the evening again, I'll take it with me - I never budge... (22 replies)
