After a few days of starting this inhaler, I had chest pains and it almost felt like my heart was cramping. After about 2-3 weeks it did go away, but when I stopped and started again, the same thing would happen.

Alvesco raised my peak flow from 350 to 430. It has worked really well for me and I recommend it!

I used Qvar 80 for years with no problems. It was so effective, I could skip a couple days of use. My HMO discontinued distribution of Qvar and substituted it with Alvesco 160. It doesn't work as well for me, and I find my asthma is getting worse since starting it 3 weeks ago.
