DULERA: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Asthma “I tried Dulera for a week and did not like it. I was diagnosed with mild asthma at age 30 but probably had it most of my life–just assumed everyone felt like they couldn’t breathe sometimes. 🙂 Doctor prescribed the 100mcg dose, two puffs in the morning and two in the evening. I did that the first day, and that night, I felt very agitated, couldn’t sleep, felt depressed, and had depressing thoughts. I struggled a bit with depression as a teen, but I hadn’t felt that way in 5-10 years before taking Dulera. I cut down to 1 puff in the morning and felt much better on days 2-5, but by day 6, I was starting to feel depressed again. Stopped the Dulera and feeling back to normal like myself. Maybe I am more prone to these side effects because I’ve had a history of depression, but these were very scary side effects. I also felt like I was losing my voice by day 6. To be fair it did reduce my nighttime coughing… but not worth the side effects for my mild asthma.”

For Asthma, Maintenance “Used Dulera for 6 months. It worked fantastically for my asthma. I used a spacer with it. Dulera leaves or causes “boogies” in your nose that filter the air for you. BUT, it gave me severe migraines. I wouldn’t have found out if the following hadn’t happened. Was due for a refill, my insurance wanted the Dr. to do another “dance” to prove I need this, and because of the delay, I started wanting to know just how much does this med cost. Was shocked at the price. But during my shock, my eyes fell upon 3 main side effects (I make it a practice not to look at side effects unless I experience something) and headaches was one of them. Shazam!! So THAT was why I’d been having debilitating migraines all summer.”

For Asthma “Took this 2x and developed wheezing, coughing and flu like symptoms with a fever. Had to use rescue inhaler just to get my lungs open. Will not be using again, definitely not worth the side effects.”

For Asthma, Maintenance “Dulera is working great on my breathing and helping me cough up excess mucus but my pain level in the parts of my body that have osteoarthritis seems to have increased. I know my blood pressure is up so my doctor did add another blood pressure that’s helping take care of that. I just am in pain wherever I have osteoarthritis, has anyone else experienced this?”

For Asthma “I’ve been on and off Dulera for several years. After using it regularly for a month or two I invariably get a low-level infection in my lungs/bronchial tubes. Major yellow-to-brown phlegm, constantly coughing.Then when I go off Dulera, after a few days the infection self-cures and the phlegm and coughing subside. But then of course the asthma comes back.For me there’s no magic solution (yet!). I’ll probably not use Dulera any more, too afraid of the infections it encourages.”

For Asthma, Maintenance “I have probably spent 2,000$ this year due to hospital co pays, I was put on dulera and it has completely stopped my wheezing, I just wish I didn’t need medicine to breathe :(“
