I've just been put on [[treatment:Symbicort:54b5b0f408c929ed[[phone:16000434]] (2:]] puffs in the morning & 2 at night). What side effects have you Symbicort users experienced? Is Advair as good with less side effects. Thanks so much!
Alison890 when you are any inhaler you should rinse your mouth with water to prevent thrush. I also gargle with the water and spit it out. When I take my inhalers my Dr. told me to hold my breath and count to 10 then gargle and rinse.
Absolutely rinse your mouth out to try and avoid thrush. It can get so bad as to impede your breathing. Trust me on that one. I just finished off the tablets to get rid of a severe case. And sugar feeds it.
If you are at a place where it is impossible to rinse, it will not harm you to take a drink of water, coffee or soda. This is not recommended for every time you use the inhaler.
Use mouth wash, it's to keep from getting thrust
