Like many steroid inhalants for asthma, this one has a lot of side effects, most notably a lot of weight gain. Tremor, headaches, bloating, depression, achy bones, "loose" feeling joints.<br><br>I am going off of it, after being on it for four years. I'm following my Naturopathic Doctor's advice, and drinking 8-12 glasses to one gallon of water a day, taking Calium w/Magnesium, Quercetin with Bromelain for breathing, and went vegetarian with no meat, salt, sugar or dairy. I'm allergic to soy, tomatoes, and numerous trees, grasses, indoor and outdoor molds, cats, etc. <br><br>It is well worth a visit to a good Naturopathic Doctor, educated at a good school like Bastyr University or Southwestern College of Naturopathic Medicine. Don't keep taking these drugs if you can help it, they will kill you eventually, and you'll end up on more and more.
