Reviews for Asmanex Twisthaler

Sort by:

For Asthma, Maintenance "I started taking asthma to control my adult-onset asthma. It works very well, and when I am on it, my asthma is very well-controlled. I have gone off of it twice, due to my doctor thinking I did not need to be on it long-term, but after my last series of asthma attacks we agreed I should stay on it for the foreseeable future. My only comment is that I do think it makes me gain weight, especially in my mid-section. Not a lot (yet) but we will see what happens if I go off of it again. The weight gain is on average about 5 lbs., so not much, but on my frame, it is noticeable. Every time I go off it, the weight goes as well. I'd rather breathe and have 5 extra lbs., but I haven't seen this listed as a significant side effect anywhere."

For Asthma, Maintenance "My 8 yr old daughter has been suffering from so many of the side effects listed. She was switched to this due to a switch in her health insurance. My very happy social child has experienced such anxiety and breakdowns that have come out of no where. She begs to not leave the house and to just be left alone in her room. Weightloss, diarrhea, painful urination the list continues. It breaks my heart. Her Doctor did not pick up on possibly the medicine being a cause she referred us to a therapist . I will continue with therapist but, we as parents have to be our childrens advocate and remember that with Drs. there is a reason they call it "practicing medicine " That is exactly it they are practising.!"

For Asthma, Maintenance "I had been on Pulmicort on and off, but had to stop using it because it gave me terrible leg cramps at night. Prior to starting Asmanex, my asthma had gotten worse, and I was using my rescue inhaler six or seven times a day. Since starting Asmanex, I have only used my rescue inhaler once in three months. I haven't noticed any side effects either. I may just be one of the lucky ones, but my quality of life has improved immensely since I started using this "wonder drug"."

For Asthma, Maintenance "I call this a miracle. Been on for 16 months and haven't had a single attack. Went from taking five nebulizers treatments a day, to taking ZERO. On top of that it has significantly cut down allergies that was obviously triggered by asthma. I hope you have the success that I have had. Out of pocket price is the only downfall to Asthmanex."

For Asthma, Maintenance "I love this once a day use and have been sick less since on this medicine. I love it, have not had to use my rescue inhaler as much and in 2 years only 2 ER visits and only a couple of attacks instead of weekly."

For Asthma, Maintenance "Since the beginning of the pollen season (Mid-March) in Atlanta. I've been miserable with chest congestion/asthma that wouldn't go away with all the various things prescribed for me (Singulair, Combivent, Astepro N.S., Allegra and Avlesco, which gave me thrush within a couple of weeks) UNTIL Asmanex! It took about a week, but then one day I realized I was able to breathe easier and each day got better. I haven't needed the Combivent since I started to clear with the Asmanex. I'll ask my Asthma/Allergy doctor if I can stop the Singular (since I also have osteopenia borderline on osteoporosis). My mom suggested I move to another state, but I won't have to if the Asmanex is able to get me through the Atlanta pollen seasons (March-May)."

For Asthma, Maintenance "I haven't had an asthma attack since I started using Asmanex Twisthaler--nor have I had to use my Proventil for a flare-up. I am taking this medication instead of Advair or Singular because I have osteopenia. Asmanex does not deplete bone density as do some of the other medications for asthma."
