I recently saw a post about someone suffering side effects from seretide and I had one of those lightbulb moments. I consulted Google re side effects and a few things dropped into place. My poorly controlled asthma/?COPD necessitated my seretide 125 being increased to seretide 250 with 2 puffs both morning and night. I noticed immediately that the night time dose left me feeling agitated and unable to sleep so I take it no later that 8pm though I'm still a poor sleeper. I've been on the stronger dose for about 18 months and noticed that the skin on my arms would itch from time to time and a large and unsightly port wine stained blemish would come up rather than a rash. It would eventually go but took about a week. More recently I had a stress fracture in my foot when I don't recall any injuries.
Now I'm thinking all these symptoms are from the high dosage of seretide. What do other members think? Any help or advice would be very welcome. My usual doctor who has looked after me for many years and is wonderful is semi retired and working only 1 day per week and I can't get an appointment with him til January so I've booked in for a review with another doctor so I hope he can assess my medication.
