One of the posters on here said he/she started taking Berotec because it reduces the heart fluttering. Is this a maintenance drug like Advair or is it a rescue drug? I may ask my doctor about it.
I also got heart palpitations with the Advair. It went away with time, though. My mom was even considering taking me to a cardiologist until it went away.
Advair is an excellent medication for most people. My recommendation would be to keep the appointment with the cardiologist and to continue the Advair.
