Post Advair side effects.

Hi, I'm 19 years old and I have been taking advair now for about 2 weeks. Before taking advair I was took cingulair but it only helped a little so I didn't take it consistently. Now I take advair and cingulair together and it has helped more than anything else I have ever done. I used to take abuterol (sp?) at least once a day and usually more, now I can walk around without an inhauler. Anyways..... I have been getting headaches to some small degree which aren't too bad, but the thing I have noticed the most is that my eye seems to have muscle spasms. I know that sounds really weird but only in my left eye on my eye lid does it happen. It happens pretty consistently throughout the day, around every 30 minutes. Anyone with similar experiences or advice would be helpful. Thanks.

I'd give the Advair a little longer to see if it goes away.

When I first started taking Symbicort (an advair-like preparation) I started waking up at night at least every night with horrible horrible leg cramps. They eventually went away. I think it was just my body adjusting to the long-acting bronchodilator.

If the advair works and this side-effect isn't debilitating, see if it will go away with continued use.
