Hello, everybody! I am an asthmatic patient who regularly suffers from severe bouts of asthma. It started out as a mild case of breathlessness when I was a child. At that time, I neglected it thinking that it would go away or subsequently get healed but it gradually developed into an attack of full scale asthma. It was then that I decided to consult the doctor but by then, most of the damage had already been done and since then, I have been suffering a lot due to the severe attacks of asthma. The doctor advised me to take the Advair inhaler which has immensely helped me a lot in recovering from my attacks of asthma and also helped me in providing relief. Of late, I have been experiencing some kind of weird things in my life.
I can’t sleep at night as even the slightest laying down position makes me cough to no end which is really frustrating. However, my peak flows never come up close to my green zone, they stay at 200-350 even with having done prednisone.
I want to ask you a few questions and would like to get answers to the questions and valuable suggestion from you. My questions are:
Has anyone else had any experience of getting oral thrush due to the effect of taking the Advair inhaler? I think I may have this solution but just wanted to get some other advices from the people who have really suffered from this. May Thanks to all in advance!
