    Unhappy Advair/Serevent side effects

    Anyone having these side effects from either Advair or Serevent?
    weitht gain or inability to lose weight
    bloated face and belly
    pain in legs and feet, joint and muscles
    foot/leg cramps
    fatigue
    trouble sleeping
    back pain
    headaches
    sinus problems
    Doc says the drugs are not to blame and wants to schedule tests. I ask about both drugs because I've been on both, Serevent is Advair without the steroid.

    Yep. I just changed to Asmanex (sp?) from Advair due to side effects that included weight gain (well, really major increase in hunger), joint pain and leg/hip/feet pain. All of these symptoms were confirmed by my doctor/nurse as symptoms of the Advair and quickly changed my meds. They specifically said it was the Serevent causing the side effects. These are documented side effects, btw.

    Re: Advair/Serevent side effects

    I was on Advair only a few days before both my ankles swelled, making walking painful. I threw it out. Dr. put me on Pulmicort. Much better; no side-effects. If you research it, most of these medications have a laundry list of side-effects. Some people will experience them, some not. I asked the nurse practitioner why she didn't tell me about the ankle swelling side-effect. She said she didn't think about it because hardly anyone on Advair experiences that. Well, I did!

    Thanks so much for the info. I quit the Serevent and cancelled the tests the doc scheduled. Only been 24 hrs. and already feeling better. Will check into the Pulmicort and Asmanex. Thanks again! )
