Flonase may cause big problems with smell and taste!!!
| Panchos Mom
I have had two procedures done in 2015 a balloon sinuplasty and a procedure to trim down a deviated septum and turbinate, both of which have helped my breathing. But my biggest problem for over a year has been the off and on loss of smell and taste. Providers have had me on couple different inhalers and a few nasal sprays. The one spray I have been on the longest is Flonase. In Feb. 2016 I lost my smell and taste again. I decided to go off the Dulera and the Flonase entirely. Within two days my sense of smell and taste came back, so I will add back the Dulera first to determine which one was the culprit. From what I have been reading online these days its probably the Flonase. How ridiculous is it that physicians don't tell people that this can happen. All of them are in cohoots together....all they care about is making MONEY off of us!!!

Can anyone help me? My 2 year old son was on qvar because of reactive airway disease, but the last time he had his appointment with the pulmonologist he suggested we switch from qvar (80 mg/2 puffs/2 times a day) to filers, the same amount of times. I'm just curious if we are going backwards and this is a stronger med or if it's getting better. I asked him and he didn't really say either way because there's no way to compare the 2. Can anyone help me?

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
| mdjgirl7
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.

Dulera can deplete potassium levels. If you do see your doctor, ask for a test. He might depending on how long you've been on it, if it is working and how long your symptoms have been happening.

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
| Joanne
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.
