advair vs duleria
I was diagnosed with adult asthma, the doctor started me on duleria 200 two puffs twice daily. At first it was better I was not out of breath from doing simple task, as time went on I started have side effects like significant weight loss and muscle cramps. My feet would cramp so bad at might it woke me up. I was also significant nausea, I never threw up but it felt like if I could I would feel better. I stopped the treatment myself and I will see the doctor next week to see what else he can come up with in the mean time I am exploring essential oils.
