    Balding since using Symbicort
    I have used Symbicort for only 6 months and am balding. My hair is falling out by the handfuls. What ever component you have in the medicine needs to be removed. Sad this medicine really did help.

    This sounds very familiar. I started Symbicort in January and I would say I have lost at least 1/3 of my hair since. It falls out every time I brush / wash it. I thought it was maybe because we moved house but as time goes on and it continues to fall - 46% more...
