Dear M Bowlin... Advair has a steroid in it. It is never appropriate or wise to stop taking any type of steroid drug abruptly. These drugs should always be weaned. I am surprized your pharmacist or physician did not inform u of this. This is why u don't feel so good. Next time wean down to avoid this effect. I hope u feel better... pup
Hello m.bowlin. Yes, it very likely is. I've had similiar experiece, or feeling my blood pressure seems to rise, or so I think thats what it is, when I miss a few doses. Usually happens when my diskus is empty and I'm doing without untill I pick up my new one. Best wishes,pledge
