This probably isn't a new topic for this readership but it is for me! I am a relatively new asthma patient in that I had my first attack in May 2009 aged 61. Since then I have been on a number of treatments including Seretide, Symbicort and Formoterol/ciclesonide. Of these the best for controlling the asthma has been Seretide and Symbicort both giving me PF readings of 520 or so, however both left me with the side of effect of a hoarse and croaky throat. The Formoterol/ciclesonide combination didn't have the side effect but was less effective at controlling the asthma leaving me with a PF reading of 410 and slightly breathless.
Clearly I should stick with the Seretide or Symbicort but does anyone have a solution for the hoarse/croaky voice?
I would be very grateful for any advice.
