First post. My name is Kostas from Athens Greece and I am 44 years old. Was diagnosed with bronchial asthma 1.5 years ago, which probably was caused by allergic rinitis. In this last 1.5 year I was prescribed Fostair, Relvar and Simbicord, which all had the same terrible side effects on me. Anxiety, palpitations, panic attacks and heart pain. Only Seretide has no side effects on me, but it doesn’t cover me. I say it doesn’t cover my because I have to use aerolin 5 times a day (2 puffs) in order to breath properly. Then every month or two a severe asthma attack occurs, and have to go to the hospital. There, they give me 2-3 times a mask with the nebulizer and I take 36mg Medrol/day for 5 days. I would be ok for 20 days (give or take) and then a new attack. Of course my asthma doctor has knowledge of all these and we plan all steps together. Last week I started singulair also. So now I am on seretide 500, aerolin and singulair.
Just writing all these to see if anyone else is facing the same situation and has find another solution.
