    There have been reports of candida laryngitis in patients on inhaled steroids. See your doctor to see if this may be the cause of your hoarseness. For that matter, chronic hoarseness should always be evaluated by a doctor as there are other causes that may require medical attention.

    always rinse ur mouth out when your done. Make sure when your just starting not to use more than 1 dose. A lot of times you can't even feel it, also it is absolutely not a relief inhaler. If it's too hoarse, be careful, get ahold of the doctor, make sure its not to bad of a reaction.

    I'm sorry I'm not much help but have been using advair twice a day for about a year. You must rinse well and I even gargle with water because thrush (which looks white) is a nasty side affect of not rinsing the steriod because it can throw the natural balance in your mouth off. You want to be sure you're inhaling it. If you have chronic hoarseness, I'd consult your doc as it could be the medicine, not inhaling it right and it could be even something unrelated.

    Re: Hoarseness with Advair

    I had the same problem and saw an ENT doctor about it. She did confirm that people occasionally do have voice problems with advair. I had been on it for many years and never had a real problem, and for some reason in the past 6 months had a problem. The doctor switched me to a new inhaler, asmanex and I have been back to normal. The only downside has been that my insurance does not give me a discount on the new inhaler so it is quite a bit more costly, but at least my voice is normal!

    Hope this helps!
