I am a chronic asthmatic, well was* has been 2 years since my last attack. I owe this to the amazing symbicort, after 2 years my peak flow has increased from 400 to 700 and for the first winter since I can remember I dont have a chest infection.
The problem I have is that the symbicort is starting to have some side effects (first time in 2 years) I must point out that this isn't an every day occurence, but on some occasions after taking I feel light headed and dizzy and a couple of times it has caused me to be violently sick.
Dont worry, I will be seeking medical advice, I was just wondering if anyone else had this problem or heard of this happening to anyone else?
I know that using a preventer on a daily basis is vital to treat asthma after all it really has had a positive effect on my life but having used other preventer's in the past, I am reluctant to try something new. Are there alternative treatments that work for you?
Thanks for taking time to read this... Happy new year
