Hi, I'm new on here, found the feed about duoresp and am slightly worried. I have had asthma since I was 2, 37 now and it has never been well controlled especially in the last few years, have been on seretide 2 puffs twice a day forever and still needing to take my ventolin a couple of times a day. Was put on Montelukast last year,it done wonders for my asthma but suffered low mood with it so stopped that. Saw my asthma nurse today who suggested trying Duoresp 4 puffs twice a day for 2 months to get it under control then reducing to what I will need. She showed me a chart of what to medicate at varying levels of symptoms. She wants to get me to the point where I wont need my ventolin, which would be nice. After reading peoples reviews on it, it does scare me a bit but my nurse did say it might take up to 6 weeks to take affect so keep your ventolin handy and that I can call in to see her any time. Think I am lucky as I feel she really is there for me. Have read the side effects and it does say to expect tremors, thrush which is with any inhaler, hoarseness which being a singer wouldn't be good for me. I am willing to give it a try anyway, fed up of being breathless, have four kids to run round after. Will keep you posted. Emma.
