I have been using Foradil for over 2 years. It is by far the best asthma medication I've ever taken. However, I notice a gradual shortness of breath and chest pressure if I miss a dose or it's longer than 12 hrs. since my last inhilation. I'm wondering if it's addictive ! Also, I just read that it shouldn't be taken as the only treatment for asthma. I only have to use my albuterol inhaler on occasion, mostly when I forget to take the Foradil. I'm getting a bit concerned about continuing to use this medication.

Foradil changed my life! One inhaled capsule in the morning, and I'm symptom-free all day. Another one before bed if needed. A lifetime of meds and regimens replaced by these little capsules. I haven't noticed blood sugar or fatigue issues, like some users. I tell everyone I know how wonderful this drug is!

I have taken theophylline pills twice a day for twenty years. I was put on Foradil along with Asthmanex to replace the theophylline and I can't believe the effects. I can breathe better than when I was only taking the theophylline. I was very skeptical about stopping the theophylline "cold turkey". However, I have had no withdrawal symptoms and my breathing is great.

This medication, combined with Qvar, works much better for me than the advair I was formerly taking. I dont wake up short of breath like I did while taking advair.

easier on my throat than Advair. Still too expensive for a maintenance drug. Has anyone experienced weight gain with this?

Comment from: truttess@aol.con, 45-54 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: December 28

Easy to use and to monitor to be sure that I got the full dose. No irritation of the throat. Much less expensive than Advair!
