I have been on inhalers for many many years.  I have been having problems with my thorat and voice.  I have read up on some diseases and found that cortesoids can cause cortisol problems which will give problems to the throat?  Has anyone had to deal with this?   
   I know I need to get my thyroid checked, but it seems like the inhalers are causing some irritations.   Serevent, Qvar, ablbuterol are the ones I have been using.  Flovent was used before Quvar. 
I am really curious if anyone had to give up the inhalers because of them causing problems
back to square #1- off meds for now-dx with fibro.  Have a positive ANA. . Pain reliever. lodine- possibly neurotin 300mg, (not sure about that yet) sublingual B-12 , Chronic shortness of breath, sinus infections.  Asthma/COPD.

Hi Deb :) My son's voice gets a little hoarse at times but I didn't correlate it to his inhaler use. I just assumed it was from his coughing. Hmmmm something to think about for sure. Sorry I can't be much more of a help but I'm sure someone will come along soon.

I have gotten sore throat from Albuterol. It only happens for a few days then disappears. Nebulizer might help. Brandi.

Corticosteroids (Azmacort, Pulmicort, etc) can cause thrush and it's recommended that after using the MDI, that pts rinse their mouth thoroughly.

Deb Hello
Go to this web site: www.yourlunghealth.org
It will tell you the proper way to use your inhaler, you might not be using your inhaler correctly. I also agree with pegleg.
Take care and

It is very common to experience hoarseness and oral thrush with some inhalers - I agree that checking your technique and rinsing your mouth with water might help. Good luck.
current asthma meds:
  • salbutamol 5mg by nebuliser when needed
  • bricanyl inhaler as needed
  • atrovent, two puffs three times daily
  • symbicort 200/6, three puffs twice daily
  • uniphyllin 300mg twice daily
  • singulair 10mg once daily
  • visclair two tabs three times daily

other meds:

  • cocodamol 30/500 for pain (alternating with co-dydramol)
  • citalopram 20mg for depression
