Hello – I am finding myself with very frequent soar, or I should rather say dry and irritated throat.  I understand that Pulmicort and Bricanyl can cause this.  But what I am also finding is that when I do have this irritation in my throat, a cough/chest congestion follows.  This winter alone I have had roughly 3-5 occasions this has occurred since October. Has anyone else experienced such an issue?

Pulmicort is a corticosteroid. Some of the side effects are dry mouth, sore throat, sore mouth. Try rinsing your mouth thoroughly and then drink a little water to cleanse the throat.

Bricanyl is a bronchodilator. This med relaxes the bronchial airways.

Hope this helps.

I agree with pegleg, make sure you rinse your mouth with water. Or try a warm salt water gargle, you can also check out the following website for proper use of your inhaler:
These are just suggestions.
Best of wishes to you, hope you'll feel betteer soon.

not sure but could be your body's way of reacting to the medications. Brandi. I would use a spacer with your inhalers.
