I have been on Seretide for nearly 6 months now and suffering from the side effects. My skin is very thin especially on my arms and i keep tearing the skin. I have huge bruises on my legs even though i don't remember bumping into anything, plus the last 2 months i have put on 7kg even though i have a very healthy diet of fruits, veg and salads. These are all known side effects of Seretide...just wondering what alternative steroid i should suggest to my specialist. I am seeing him on the 25th of this month.
I live in Thailand so it is a case of what is available here.
To recap i am COPD mild stage 1.
