in it and cortisone is known for weight gain. There's no side effect of weight gain in the list of side effects for Dulera, but they always say, this list may not be all of the side effects.

I would speak to your doctor about this? Weight gain isn't listed in the side effects that have been reported with Dulera. In fact many people have reported weight loss. Sorry that's probably not what you want to hear. Can you think of any other reason for it? Any other medications you are taking?

I have had the same problem. I am a 68 y/o female and have been taking Dulera since March (3 months) and have gained 16 pounds. I initially weighed 122 and have ballooned to 138. Personally this is a significant weight gain and is definitely not normal for me. My appointment with my pulmonary doc is in two weeks. I plan to discuss this problem with him.
