I’m on Advair and am aware of the side effects posed by this drug and other cortico steroids. I find many people are so very anxious to know more about them so a lot of postings in message boards are pertaining to this topic. I can’t help being a bit wary myself thinking of the long term effects. It is even given to babies and children. On the other hand, there are others who are not able to tolerate it. It’s quite scary to think of what might happen to us 10 years down the line. Some other complications are likely to occur for which we might have to seek more medical help but simply worrying about it doesn’t help. Some people need these drugs to help them breathe and survival is dependent on them. I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who worries about this, isn’t it?
