    Symbicort for Asthma

    The side effects of Symbicourt are quite far-reaching in my case. Since the beginning of the intake I have cramps in the feet and toes, which always occur at night. Strong weight gain, mood swings, heavy legs and fatigue. However, the effectiveness in interaction with Singulair is good. At the beginning of the intake more often a need spray was used (bronchospray). The distances are longer now.

    Symbicort for Depression; Asthma

    Citalopram I take now for 2 years. Mainly because of depression, robbery in store, burn out. Had no other option. Was not even advised by my first doctor. Drug has since been increased to 60mg. Since then I had only sleep disturbances, extreme hot flashes and began to increase extremely fast in a very short time. Am then reduced to 40mg at my request. But do not get away from this eternal hunger, eating sensations without getting full. Wanted to participate in the nutrition program with Barmer sports, but would be rejected with this drug, as it has a negative effect on the program. Maybe there is somebody in this universe who can give a good experience tip to a beetle who is no longer comfortable in his skin ???

    Symbicort for Asthma

    In November 07, my family doctor prescribed Symbicort after I had a nightly asthma attack (seriously ill in the hospital due to mental stress). As a preventive measure, I took 1 hub in the morning or 2 in the morning every morning. I was able to detect side effects: palpitations, restlessness, high pulse, muscle tremors, bruising, frog in the throat, itchy skin, dizziness, occasional headaches, insomnia, occasional depression, weight gain. A week ago I discontinued Symbicort because the side effects got worse and worse. Blood pressure and heart rate now gradually settle on a normal, the frog is gone and the other Bescherden decay slowly. Only the nocturnal palpitations and the overweight is still there, but I hope that I am going to leave soon.

    Symbicort for Copd

    The drug is relatively well tolerated. Slime, hoarseness and cough are much less present than other cortisone-containing asthma remedies. With prolonged use, however, it comes in this, as with other budesonide-containing agents, often without the patient still sees the context, to steady, considerable weight gain.

    Symbicort for Asthma

    For 2 years I take symbicort and it is hardly possible to lose weight or to keep the weight – on the contrary I have increased in the 2 years almost 20 kg and can not get rid of them !! It is hardly possible to do sport, because my pulse is already at rest in 110 and at low load already increases to 160 (and shortness of breath is added). We are now trying a new drug, which should prevent the increase of the pulse, so that at least sport is possible.
