I have been using this medication since Nov. of 2001 (180mcg). I have not had any incidents of asthma since! Very satisfied. Still have the rescue inhaler (out dated now) kept as crutch I guess.

I have allergy-induced asthma, and take this in the evening. It started helping with my breathing after 1 day. I rinse my mouth after inhaling my doses like my pharmacist suggested. I found it easy to inhale the medicine.

I have (COPD) started Pulmicort inhaler July 17, 2012. Took about 10 days and it was just amazing, my chronic cough toally stopped. Exactly 3 months later Nov. 1st I noticed I was losing my sense of taste. By Dec. 1st (one month later) I developed the worst bitter taste in my mouth . I stopped the Pulmicort. now, almost 1 month later, my cough is coming back and my loss of taste plus the horrible bitter taste is still there. can't swallow food with this terrible taste and losing weight. in this case, the cure is worse than the disease.

I have been taking Pulmicort via nebulizer but only last month I told my consultant I didnt think it has worked very well for me and he stated it was more of a "placebo" effect which didnt go down very well with me.

I am attempting to lose weight. I have changed my diet and walk 2 miles 4 days a week. I have not lost any weight and have attributed it to the use of the inhaler.

Worked immediately after the first nebulizer treatment. After 3 years of continuous shortness of breath + constant migraines + I can finally breath normal. It took 4 pulmonogist to figure my diagnosis out...but - I feel normal again!!!
