I find that the first half of Anoro doses work great but when I get to day 15 or so the medication does not work as good.. I plan on mentioning this to my doctor as well! I was wondering if anyone else felt the same

It sounds like an exacerbation to me. I think you need to see your doc.

That's the definition of an exacerbation: when your symptoms increase and it takes some medical intervention to get over whatever you have.
