I have used inhaled steroids
on a continuous basis for the last three months. After a week to 10 days, I experience marked fatigue, mental "fogginess," noticeable depression, and irritability/negativity, all of which effect my normal functioning. These symptoms disappear 1-2 days after discontinuing the drugs. I have taken Advair, Symbicort, and Alvesco, in differing dosages. I seem unable to tolerate even 1 inhalation twice a day of 80 mcg. Symbicort, which works the best for me.
