This is a known side effect of Advair. Try gargling with warm salt water between treatments, and be sure you keep yourself well hydrated. Sometimes grandma's lemon and honey remedy will help, too. Or just a cup of chamomile tea with a little honey in it.
Your doc will need to help you assess whether this is enough of a concern to stop or decrease the Advair.

I was awake almost all night. My throat felt like it was being pinched and it hurt a lot. This isn't the back of my throat but further down in my neck.

Try rinsing your mouth with warm salt water. After you take advair rinse you mouth and you shouldn't have any problems.

I was rinsing and gargling from day one of taking it, and drinking lots of water. It was scaring me when my throat was trying to close up. My doc said to stop taking it for a couple days and let him know if my throat is better.

I saw this on another board and thought I'd share. I've been on Advair for years and the hoarse voice has always been a problem. People think I always have a cold. I've finally gotten rid of the problem by taking about a tablespoon of honey before the Advair--let it coat your throat, then rinse with water and then taking a drink of water. Then use the Advair. My voice is finally clear now and my vocal cords healed. Do this every time before taking the Advair.

Throat closure sounds more like an allergic reaction to the advair, Advair doesn't always work for everyone, I was intolerant to advair as well. Advair was at one time pulled off stores shelves...Maybe ask about another inhaler...
Throat closing up is a reaction to be taken seriously, make a note of this reaction and I hope your feeling better soon...

I agree that this is a serious reaction. I would not take it again. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different response is a symptom of insanity. If you have the guts to say that to your doctor, MORE POWER TO YOU.
