My Consultant switched me from Symbicort 400, x2 puffs am and 2pm
To Fostair last September, Taking x4 puffs am and another 4 pm.
I soon began to suffer from regular bouts of Oral Thrush despite lots of rinsing, antibiotics cleared this up until it returned again.
Taking Fostair has made a slight improvement to my breath strength when blowing into the meter but nothing else, I still suffer from shortness of breath, fatigue etc, etc.
I still get Chest Infections same as before and the Oral Thrush comes and goes but always returns again, now have a hoarse voice and a weight increase!
*If I stop taking Fostair for a couple of days my voice returns to normal and my weight drops a little.
Don't think that Fostair is improving/has improved my Chest condition much at all, at least Symbicort did not give me any side effects!
nb: Antibiotics no longer prescribed by my GP to cure oral thrush anymore, an alternative drug is but this gave me very painful Gastric problems, I was then prescribed a third drug to combat this!
I have not had any problems with coughing as some people have reported.
