From this study (13 hours ago):
Believe my problem is with Formoterol. Symptoms (breathlessness and being winded with minimal exertion) first noted three years ago after taking Foradil aerolizer (formoterol) and asmanex twisthaler for one to two years. Health, stamina gradually dimished to shortness of breath with minimal exertion. One - two years ago prescription changed to symbicort. health improved dramatically for approximately two months. Began walking one to two miles a day. Now back to being winded with minimal exertion. Health seems better until I take my symbicort. Spiriva seems to counter act breathlessness at morning when I take with symbicort. At evening with no Spiriva, breathlessness prevails. using Spiriva twice daily works but doctor says no.

I am in my 40s and I work in college admissions. Ive never experienced migraines before and have been otherwise healthy. I fell hitting my head and was prescribed this medicine. Using this med had me in the hospital twice, I have severe hair loss, and what the er Dr says is syncope that makes me pass out. The Dr wants to try something new but look at me, in a profession where you're always in the public eye, almost bald and still suffering migraines.This is life altering but is being treated as , just one of those things...its depressing
