The question seems to have missed the word "hoarse" - which is what happens to my voice when I use any inhaler - powder, or single use ones..............they all seem to irritate me - despite my rinsing and gargling very well.
New member tell your doctor now it is a side affect
Thanks so much. I guess my breathing isn't a huge issue.............I can't walk and talk - but other than that I'm pretty good. I will use the Ventolin every now and then. Thanks again
Usually it's the dry powder inhalers that often cause the problems with being hoarse. It's the steroids in the Advair or Symbicort that cause the problem, but I know people who also have problems with LAMAs as well. You can experiment with various meds and see if there's one you don't react to as much. Sometimes it comes down to a choice: do you want to not be hoarse or do you want to breathe?
