Reviews for Formoterol/mometasone

Anonymous May 18, 2017

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma, Maintenance: “After 8 months of taking Dulera it suddenly hit me that I was very sensitive to dust, harsh cleaning products, 2nd hand smoke and strong perfumes. After much thought I talked to my doctor about this suspicion that Dulera was causing this. She said go ahead and stop using it. Dulera did *work* for preventing daily asthma, however, I think it also prevents the lungs (and yourself) from actually dealing with asthma attacks when they do come. I'm nearing my 2nd week off Dulera and I'm finding out that I need to re-learn how to effectively calm myself down when some mild asthma is coming. Dulera worked pretty well for me for several months until I was confronted head-on with new triggers that previously did not effect me before Dulera.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma: “I've been on Dulera for about 14 days now. I'm sleeping better w/ less coughing. The side effect I'm having is the worst case of thrush. Anyone else have this issue? If so what did you do to treat it? Did you have to get medication from the Dr. ?”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma, Maintenance: “I've been using this for approx. 6 months and my asthma has never been better. However, it causes me terrible muscle spasms all over my body and I've gained over 10 pounds. I've tried lowering the dose and taking extra potassium and magnesium to see if it lessens the spasms, to no avail. I'm going to have to stop taking it.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone): “My 10 year old son took Dulera for asthma. In the 8 weeks that he took it he dropped from 62lbs to 56lbs. He was tired all of the time to the point that he had to lay down often. He is usually active all of the time.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma, Maintenance: “Dulera is working great on my breathing and helping me cough up excess mucus but my pain level in the parts of my body that have osteoarthritis seems to have increased. I know my blood pressure is up so my doctor did add another blood pressure that's helping take care of that. I just am in pain wherever I have osteoarthritis, has anyone else experienced this?”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma: “I have had asthma since infancy. (I am now 81!) I have probably used all the common medications - i.e. albuterol, singulair, etc., etc. in my lifetime. Dulera allows me the luxury of one puff at night, and a good night's sleep. I am otherwise very healthy having long ago given up the things that are bad for health, like smoking, eating sweets, alcohol, and I have a wonderful life! So part of it is the medication, and part of it is up to me - my lifestyle.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma: “I recently switched from Symbicort to Dulera. My asthma is under control, but the side effects are worrisome. My blood glucose levels have risen and I have gained 5 pounds in the two months since I've been using this medication. I will give it a few more months until I speak with my doctor about other alternatives.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma: “I just quit using dulera two days ago because I was having the quivering pain in my leg and arm. Also, been experiencing pain in my chest/breast area. Also, even after two days of not being on the dulera I feel that my lungs are more open than they were on the dulera. I have switched back to using proair and qvar. I wish this medication did not have so many side effects as it did seem to control my asthma.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma, Maintenance: “The weight gain was not worth it. I quit. My asthma is moderate, not at all severe and my doc put me on Dulera, SIngulair after 5 days of steroids. Then added Spiriva and now Breo. Ridiculous. I quit them all except Breo, which I don't even take every day (because my breathing is not obstructed or difficult)! But during Dulera and Singluar, I gained FIFTEEN POUNDS in 2 months, which I have never done in my entire life (I'm in my late 40s).”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma: “I only use Dulera once a day and only one puff, but I do this every single day usually just before I go to bed. On occasion I will need a second puff during the day after I wake up. I occasionally get the pain in the side and lower back but it does not last long. I have many of the side effects but I had them long before I started using Dulera. The pain is a new one though.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma: “After an asthma attack a month ago. A doctor at urgent care prescribed me this. A week later I saw my allergist who told me to stop dulera. She put me on singulair. I was not able to pick up my prescription so I continued using dulera. The first week of using it, I could breath a lot better however- now after a month use. My body has experienced chest tightness, lung twitching & heart palpitations. My body feels off. I don’t like the chest tightness and weird heart palpitations. I will be discontinuing this until I get my other asthma medication.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma, Maintenance: “Used Dulera for 6 months. It worked fantastically for my asthma. I used a spacer with it. Dulera leaves or causes "boogies" in your nose that filter the air for you. BUT, it gave me severe migraines. I wouldn't have found out if the following hadn't happened. Was due for a refill, my insurance wanted the Dr. to do another "dance" to prove I need this, and because of the delay, I started wanting to know just how much does this med cost. Was shocked at the price. But during my shock, my eyes fell upon 3 main side effects (I make it a practice not to look at side effects unless I experience something) and headaches was one of them. Shazam!! So THAT was why I'd been having debilitating migraines all summer.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma: “I was prescribed Dulera as an alternative to Advair, when my insurance stopped covering it. I was skeptical at first, having positive response from Advair. After 2 weeks of taking Dulera, not only did my asthma symptoms worsen, but I started experiencing other horrible symptoms, including chest tightness, heart palpitations, severe headache, nervousness, foginess, and fatigue. I also developed excruciating abdominal pain, that radiated from front to back, similar to severe period cramping, but deeper and throbbed. I immediately stopped taking Dulera, but this cramping pain never went went away. I eventually went to several specialists, including an OBGYN, who can only conclude that I had a dormant/ mild form of endometriosis that was exacerbated by the Dulera. Years later, I still suffer from this pain, with no cure or remedy- I can only hope to find others with a similar story, so we can file a class action suit against them. This medicine is dangerous.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma, Maintenance: “I was forced to use Dulera after getting a new Job and Advair went from $0 to $160 a month. I have been on Dulera for about a month total, what I can tell you is I hate the side effects of it. I have spasms in my pecs and calves which always seem to be noticed about 30 minutes to an hour after I use the inhaler. Shaking in my hands and the occasional blurred vision. I wish I could go back to Advair but insurance won’t budge and I can’t afford it. I find it easier to use my rescue inhalers then keep taking Dulera.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma, Maintenance: “I've had asthma ever since I quit smoking. I've quit twice and each time after 3 years, the asthma kicks in - bad! I've tried everything and am now on Dulera, which helped tremendously. My insurance wouldn't cover it; $375 for one inhaler. Found PAN online and they are taking care of the cost. If not for PAN, I would not be able to take Dulera. However, after several months on this med, my teeth starting rotting - very quickly. My dentist said he only sees this kind of deterioration in chemo patients and someone who hasn't brushed in 20 years. I've had two teeth pulled already, and another is scheduled to be pulled. Also, started with thrush a day ago and today I can barely move my tongue. (Yes, I've been rinsing.)”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma, Maintenance: “Horrible Med, all it has done was caused me to pack on weight, cause high blood pressure and more asthma issues than I ever had before I was put on it, I am seriously going to talk to my doctor about it( I have been on it for 5-6 yrs to see if I can get on something else so I can go back to exercising to lose the weight it packed on. If doctor won't I guess its time for a new doctor and gradually ween myself off of Dulera period”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma: “I've had asthma my entire life to the point I would pass out from being unable to breathe and many times felt I'd never make it to the hospital. Dulera is the first med in 50 years to completely free me from this condition. I've been attack free for 2 years. Now the pharmacist tells me it's been discontinued. Please tell me that's not true”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma: “I have severe asthma and my heart stopped on father’s day this year’ from having a asthma attack. It’s the second time I’ve gone into cardiac arrest from an attack & waking up the next day on life support. Since June I’ve been on Dulera taking 2 puffs twice a day, & it has helped tremendously’ I can breathe!! I’ve gone from constantly short of breathe’ waking up in the middle of night in attacks’ it was awful., the only thing that’s scaring me tho is’ I’m gaining weight’ I’ve put on about 10-15 pounds since June’ Without changing my diet, I’ve noticed I feel hungry a lot’ I’ve always had a little weight on me’ but I don’t want to get to that point where I’m depressed about my weight’ I already get that way as it is.. I’m just on the fence of what I should do.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma, Maintenance: “I have struggled to with my asthma for 28 years now. I tried many drugs, and combination of drugs, to get it under control but would still always need an inhaler or Nebulizer treatment. Then my asthma specialist tried dulera in combination with singulair (was already taking it). And for the FIRST time in any memory I have I could breathe easy no tightness no little obstruction or wheeze here and there. I could run, I could practically fly up and stairs. Finally my body could keep up with me. As far as side effects I didn't really experience any in my time of using it.”

Dulera (formoterol / mometasone) for Asthma: “I've been on Dulera for the past year or more. It helped significantly. However, I've used up the coupon where it only costs $15 and now it is $405 and I can no longer afford it. After reading that others have had shaky hands, heart palpitations, and weigh gain, I'm realizing that I have those issues too and it might be the Dulera. I guess I'll find out since I'm not taking it anymore. :(”
