I've started to develop sore throat, earaches, feeling like I'm coming down with the flu and nausea. The onset of sore throat seemed to happen within an hour of taking it and would go away after a few hours till the next dose, but now has become more persistent and also includes earache, hoarseness and feeling sick. Also, it's hard for me to get enough force from my lungs to breath this in fully. And, I still have to use my rescue inhaler a few times a week.

This is the best asthma medication I have ever used. It doesn't leave a nasty taste in your mouth and I haven't used my rescue inhaler in almost a year. I have experienced no side effects. I have even taken up running, something that always caused an asthma attack when I was a kid.

My seven year old son has begun using this as opposed to the pulmicort respules with the nebulizer. He loves it. It's easy and much quicker than the nebulizer! And, his breating has never been better.

My 7 year old son has been taking this medication for over a year with great success apart from nosebleeds and nasal stuffiness. He has been taken off this medication recently and immediately began having sleep problems. He began getting scared at bed time and crying for long periods of time in bed. He complains of feeling sad and tired in bed, and of not having enough sleep for his daily activities. He has never been fearful of bedtime in his life. I hope that with more time off the drug his sleep will return to normal.

I stopped using this drug after 2 days because I was having a hard time swallowing after usage.

I have used Pulmucort flexhaler for about 3 years and it works for me. Find I don't need to use the inhaler anymore unless I am sick with cough.

I am 60 yrs old, on Pulmicort since 1997, and WARNING! I just had my first DEXA scan (bone loss) and horrid results. Hips fine but lumber (affected area for Pulmicort) is severe loss. Technician states due to Pulmicort which does cause bone loss! Cannot reverse unless I take the added risk of more drugs. Am getting off ASAP. Please check the web for Pulmicort side effects! It's there!
