I started Dluera 200 today and have Thyroid problems. osteoporosis, chronic fatigue, cataracs, hoarseness, dry mouth...What happens when you have these conditions and are taking this inhaler? Does this medication cause you to gain weight? I noticed it is Mometasone which belongs to a class of drugs called corticosteroids. Don't steroids usually make you retain water and gain weight?

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.

Questing full dosage for Mild asthma
Is it okay to reduce my Dulera 200 mg from 2 puffs twice daily to one puff twice daily. I also take Singulair. 10mg.

New to Dulera
I've taken Spiriva and Advair for several years. I've been on oxygen for about a year and a half. Last breathing test showed me as stage 4. I got a new doctor and he said that he'd switch out the Advair for Dulera, probably no difference, but since I'd been on Advair for over ten years it was worth a try. The improvement has been remarkable. After the first seven days, I was able to stop using oxygen around the house (right now I'm only using it at night). After three weeks, I feel so much better!

I'm new to Dulera and so far so good... I've been asthmatic for 7 years and for a looong time I was in denial. I was only using my Albuterol when needed and after a while it was every day! Now I use 2 puffs of Dulera twice a day and I've seen a dramatic improvement. Also I've found that taking one Fish Oil tablet a day helps my asthma ALOT. Thanks

I too appreciate these post. I have copd and have been on oxygen for 3yrs. I have been using Advair 2x's a day and Spiriva1 X's a day for yrs. My insurance won't pay for my Advair any more and suggested I use Dulera. I am afraid to use a new treatment so reading these have helped. Again, thanks for your imput.

I was prescribed Singulair by my ENT, because I wanted to try something I thought would be a "lighter" form of treatment other than Dulera; after 3 days my skin was feeling as though it was hot, then cold, and being scraped by pins! Also, the dreams I had were vivid and very strange, and I was extremely agitated. So, I am now in the process of making myself try the Dulera, hoping it will work and I won't be allergic!

I was given Dulera over 3 weeks ago, and I am afraid to use it. I have a mild asthma, whistling and a little wheezing at night. One doctor told me he controlled his without meds, and I am so fearful, wishing I wasnt' this way... I am glad to see the positive comments about the drug.
