Seretide - aching hands. If side effect - reduce dosage or change inhaler?



I've had aching hands/arms for a few months now, wonder if it could be side effect for seretide -I've been on 1000 micrograms a day for a few years

If it is a side effect , will it help to reduce dosage ( don't want to do it without consultant and I will see him in a few months time) or I will have to change the inhaler? Do all steroid inhalers have aching joins side effects?

Good night to everyone!

Hi Polzovatel all drugs have side effects, if you phone the helpline during office hours they should be able to help good luck :-)

hi i take seratide and i dont have any side affects but there is a leaflet inside the box that will tell you what the side affects are have u been put on any other medication you could phone a pharmmacy thats open on a sunday hope you get the help you need good luck ,

Section 4 shows all the side affects and aching joints is a 1 in 10 chance. I also have arthritis so not 100% sure if it is that or seretide. I do get sore and loss of voice even though I gargle after taking?

Be Well

I too suffer with a sore throat and loss of voice. I have found gargling with salt water morning and evening has helped.


I've just recently started on seretide 125/25 and have experienced joint pains (inflammation) - especially knees - almost from day 1. It's becoming so annoying that I'm considering asking for a different inhaler. I didn't have this when i was using beclomethasone inhaler. Hope that hells
