I take Advair and have for at least 10 years. I started on the highest dose, then have weaned myself to lower doses over the years, with my Dr. instructions. I also only take one dose a day, now and am totally controlled with that single dose a day of 100/50. I would never change what I take. My asthma was year 'round, no particular trigger other than cigarette smoke and moldy basements. My cold air asthma is gone for now, had that for 10 years or so, even with the Advair. Hot coffee would stop it immediately, warming the bronchial tubes...

I have breast cancer and had bilateral masastectomy in October 2015 and my blood pressure has been high (range of 145/95 above) eversince my surgery. My breast surgeon recommended that I seek help for my blood pressure problems and I was refer to a doctor that prescribed me with fluonxol 0.5mg to be taken twice a day for 5 days. I can feel that the medication is strong from the first time taking it and on the third day I started to feel the side effects from the medications i.e. sweating, pin and needle sensation on my stomache and chest, not able to sleep and dry mouth. I rang my doctor and he told me to stop taking the medication immediately. Although I had stop for 24 hours now, I'm still feeling the side effects. Anyone can advise me how to effectively wean of this medication? I didn't know that this will do more harm to my body than good.
