Hi Comealongway, I came across your thread after doing a Google search for "weaning off Pulmicort". I, too, would like to wean off Pulmicort and, like you, am seeking encouragement and information from others on the web. I have allergy-induced asthma and am also taking Rhinocort (same drug as Pulmicort but taken intra-nasally). My first goal is to treat my allergies, then get off the Rhinocort, and then get off the Pulmicort. I have recently started working with a naturopathic doctor (N.D.) to treat the root causes of my problems. I got fed up with conventional allergist who just want to push more drugs on me, increase my dosages, and never even consider the foods I eat, or the rest of my health. It makes no sense. And I refuse to listen to people who say, "You have an illness, so accept it, and continue to take the drugs." I won't give up until I've turned over every stone. I'm curious how you're coming along these days in your journey to get off Pulmicort?
