I have been on Advair 500/50 for the last 7 yrs now & I know what your thinking, I must have emphasema SP? or something but no. I was put on this level by a Dr who, I now think, just picked it up in one of her sample rooms not reading the dosage and gave it to me for adult onset asthma. I had what I thought was an asthma attack twice and she put me on it. Years later I saw a pulminologist because I had bronchitis that turned into phnumonia. He looked shocked that I was on such a high dose and he tried to take me off of it, but had no success. I go into such withdrawals that that I feel like I'm going crazy. First I get very tired, then I get a rash on my face around my nose, mouth and chin, then on my left side, I also can't breath, and act like a heroin addict itching for a fix. I have never been on something so horrible and now I feel like I'm stuck on it without escape.
Since I have been on Advair I have had major hair loss, dizziness, memory loss, anxiety and extreme angry mood swings, leg cramps, very poor circulation, I bruise Very easy, and something that I haven't seen posted...weight Loss. I haven't read any posts that say anything about reproduction but I haven't used birth control in my life and lets just say my husband and I weren't exactly preventative in any way, but I haven't gotten pregnant in 6 years??? I wouldn't doubt it if this was why.
I really think there should be a law suit against this. I also think that my dr should be under review or something for prescribing me a dosage that was way too strong for my condition. Every doctor since has looked at me and asked why are you on such a high dose, who put you on that, and never says but I know they think who messed up and put her on that dose...it's gonna kill her!
