Have been on symbicort for 1 year. Just had to switch to advair due to insurance co. Anyone know difference of symbicort and how it differs

I currantly use 250/50 advair, heart dr. Just started me on a beta-blocker also to control the blood pressure with blood pressure pill and its amazing. I dont breath as heavy as before cause it slows my heart down. My heart used to pound really hard when I was having a bad breathing spell, now its so different. Much better though. I carry my nebulizer with me all the time. I take it to work with me too. I work in a flower shop and have to unload trucks, mama mia talk about breathing heavy!!! But I get through it so far.

Iv been on Aaadvair and Spariva since 03. And don't know much about sim score but Advair and Spariva do not contain any steroids. I have read and my Dr confirmed that Advair actually has more healing properties and actually encourages new lung cell groth.

i think symbicort saved life-the dr says so too. i had gotten an infection and of course it was on holiday-hate exposing myself to emer. room so took a couple drags of symbicort and got my breathing under control. When i went to dr. he was pleased i did that. Both glands on my throat looked like pingpong balls ready to bat. just had to speak up for symbicort. thanks all

Maybe thats the difference is you are on oxygen 24/7. Im not on oxygen. Only time im on oxygen is when im hospitalized and come home with it. Then its usually only for 2 weeks, fortunately I havent been hospitalized for a year now, but I didnt have a flu shot this year. Had a pnemonia shot, but refused the flu shot. Bad reaction from shot 3 years ago, doctors office gave me flu shot when I was sick and it started a chain reaction, hospitalized 3 times within a 4 month period, guess they didnt use the right antibiotics, but always ended up on prednizone. Much better now.
