I was on the highest amount of this medication, but it has not been working for me lately so my doctor has changed me over to Dulera to see if that makes a difference.2/12/2012 at 02:17 PM

I use Advair 500/50 twice a day. I'd like to be able to go to a lower dose due to potential side effects such as bone loss, but I haven't gotten my asthma under control enough to taper down.3/27/2011 at 10:44 PM

Advair is my main control drug, and the only one I've tried that can keep me controlled at all. It keeps me out of the doctor's office in the late fall, winter and early spring.5/24/2010 at 05:43 PM
