... & muscles be due to the steroid effects of Advair? Just suspended Advair 9-days ago (per my Dr.) & have had immediate relief, but now I am short of breath & drained of all energy. I have continued usage of Singulair started 7-yrs ago also. Will Spiriva help?
Hi. I find your question interesting. My Pulmonologist said that advair or any inhaled steroid does not affect the rest of the body. It remains localized. But I guess anything is possible.
What other meds are you on? What lung condition are you treating?. The more info the easier it is to help.
Hello. I have used Advair Diskus 100/50 for years as well and have developed severe arthritis type pain in my lower spine and neck. My MRI showed moderate wear and tear in those areas, disc degeneration and osteopenia. I've tested myself off of Advair and I do get a great deal of relief from pain but after a few days, need to go back on the Advair. My doctor switched me to Singulair pill (non-steroidal) but it does not completely control my asthma. After reading your post, I will see if adding Spiriva inhaler will work to control my asthma as well as getting a reduction in joint pain. Also, I am curious to know if you tried this and your results?
