I'm looking for a LABA & steroid combo to help with inflammation and reactive airway from allergic asthma. I already take xolair, allergy shots, and zyrtec. Albuterol inhaler is not helping. Pulmicort was useless.
Has anyone had success with Dulera? Is it better than Symbicort? Breo is new, I am told, and not covered by my insurance. Also wondering about side effects - sore throat, thrush, etc.? I tend to get sore throats despite using chamber & rinsing / gargling after.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
55 yrs old. UC >12 yrs after proctitus. For flares failed prednisone, cortenemas (too little too late), mesalamines (hives, fever), 6mp (fever), Uceris (no effect). 12/13: remicade stopped severe flare! 6/14: i stopped remicade due to debilitating joint pains & weakness. Dx: Anti-TNF Induced Lupus; polyneuropathy; recovered w/prednisone (40mg then very slow taper ~ 4 months). Next UC meds?
