Common Questions and Answers about Symbicort withdrawal

symbicort

I am supposed to be using it, but simply cannot afford it, so have not been doing it. Keep us posted what happens with you. Information on this is hard to come by?
I've been on symbicort/proventil and singulair for months and I'm still having trouble breathing, chest tightness, exhaustion- I went through 2 courses of prednisone and methylprinosolone a few months ago
He has not told me what it is, I am on Symbicort and Singulair, but alas, no improvement. Could this asthma just be a manifestion of the anxiety? I have been in misery for a month. I have no allergies either, just FYI, tested clean. Thank You.
Has anyone else experiences dizziness and/or faintness and tingling hands/fingers as a withdrawal symptom from Zoloft?? Or are there any experts out there that can help me put my mind at ease? Obviously I have anxiety or I wouldn't be taking Zoloft.. Lol.. and I'm a total worry wart and scared! I was about to haul off to the E.R. if this doesn't get better! THANKS a TON!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was on breathing therapy with a machine at home for awhile. When the WDs died down it was back to Symbicort. It helps me to always remember what I went through so I won't go thru it again!! Save all your posts to re-read. I hope you get through this soon and start to enjoy recovery.
I was perfectly healthy until last year and so months after the methylprinosolone I noticed I was having breathing problems/exhaustion despite being on symbicort/proventil/singulair asthma meds.
Beta blockers like Atenolol, Metoprolol, Nadolol and Propronolol have a black box warning for patients to be supervised by a physician while discontinuing use of these drugs. Withdrawal can cause severe exacerbation of angina and myocardial infarction. Ibuprofen, Indomethecin and Ketorolac are just a few non-selective NSAIDs that are required to have a black box warning for cardiovascular risks and gastrointestinal bleeding that can be fatal if used on a long-term basis.

So, ANOTHER round of prednisone, changed from Advair to Symbicort and still had a rescue inhaler-which I used frequently b/c I was always short of breath. Nothing seemed to help. I had no cough, no wheezing, but shortness of breath and not sleeping. At this point, I was getting DESPERATE. Went back to the pulmonologist who said he suspected the asthma meds weren't working b/c I had a condition known as Vocal Cord Dysfunction-or VCD.
