Female patient reported the following Advair 100/50 side effects :
Moderate to severe fatigue.
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.
