There are certain symptoms that have come up after I started using Advair. Are these side effects, I wonder? The main thing is to do with the throat muscles which are always tense and appear swollen. It’s been two weeks since I’ve been on Advair and in the past one week, there appears to be a lump in my throat which makes it difficult to swallow, thereby making eating very painful. I have to go about with a choked up feeling as I’m about to cry or something. The mornings aren’t so bad after all. Besides a racing heart which is a common side effect associated with this drug and the above said difficulties Advair is working really well. Imagine, I haven’t had to use my Albuterol which I used to live on after starting Advair. I can’t think of stopping this drug but the lump in my throat is getting unbearable. I have a doctor’s appointment coming up soon so I can ask him about the side effects I’ve been experiencing. On the second thought, why wait that long? Can’t someone here lend me some valuable suggestions and opinions regarding what I’m going through?
