Do you take seretide as a treatment? What is your feedback? Does it help? Do you have side effects?

I use Seretide 500 plus Spirava 18mg and do get side effects, like cramp, leg pains, muscle spasms. But not too sure which drug causes the problems only that if I take a break from inhalers some symptoms fade away.

I use Seretide 250 from in my 20s 30s Just changed to Sirdupla 250 not started as yet. No doubt a cheaper Option. Yes Seretide has caused major side affects. Not sure if these are worst of Many? My overall body skin is like Tissue Paper, dare not go out in Sun as Burn easy,my 206? hopefully Body Bone structure has to scanned. Reached Median 3 years and at that point transferred to more specialist hospital with a full Body Scanner as opposed to Wand type. Missed last scan as unwell and also a fall so put back to first stage at same hospital, but Whole Body Scanner is broken, no idea when it will be fixed but staff are off according to Radiography Dept. Nice lady to whom I spoke to discuss my Appointment. I have numerous other health issues. Like a Prolapsed Disc but was unable to have Operation because of steroids. So they gave me rows of Deep Penetration Steroidal Injections. Overall with all health Problems over 71 years either to stubborn to give up and die or have God on my side. Find out one day?

Hi, I use Seretide 500 Accuhaler and Ventolin 200 Accuhaler and Spiriva Respimat 2.5 microgram. I use these for Asthma and C.O.P.D.There has been a few times that I have forgotten to take any of my medication's and medication's for other health conditions too for a couple of days and I become ill, and I take my medications again.

Some of my medications I use the alarm on my mobile/cell phone to remind me which is a great help.

Hello,

I have recently started seretide (2 weeks ago), and for now I have no side effects.

Could anyone tell me at what stage of the treatment we are supposed to get them ?

Thanks

Hello I have been using Seretide 500 for many years and apart from an occasional dry mouth I have not had any side effects. The dry mouth can be helped by drinking water before and after use. Hope this helps you

Hello I use Seretide 500 , Atrovent  and Ventolin and have done for the past 2 years and have not had any side effects . Have avoided oral thrush by always washing mouth after using  Seretide . By doing regular exercise I have gone from regular chest infections to only one in last 18 months .
