I have taken Advair before but only during and for a brief time after an acute asthma attack. My doctor felt continuous usage of the lowest dosage of Advair might be beneficial in reducing the frequency and severity of asthma attacks. It definitely has accomplished that, but after several weeks of continuous usage, I am now experiencing a constant and overwhelming fatigue along with some mild confusion/depression.

Medication Frequency: 1 inhalation twice a day
Patient Age: 59

Most drugs have a large list of nonsevere or mild adverse effects which do not rule out continued usage. These effects depend on individual sensitivity, and can include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, malaise, vomiting, headache, dermatitis, dry mouth, etc. Check commonly reported side effects . These can be considered a form of pseudo-allergic reaction, as not all users experience these effects; many users experience none at all. PatientsVille on Facebook
