Are you certain the voice loss is related to the Symbicort? Has your doctor confirmed this?

This is not a commonly reported
side effect.

However, if it was caused by the medication, most of them can take a month or so to process out of your body.

Symbicort affected my voice as well. It took about 2 months before it completely returned. (I continued using it during that time.)

I've been on Symbicort for 9 days and lost my voice after the the 5th day. It's coming back now, and I also continued the use of the Symbicort since it provided so much relief--the first good nights sleep I'd had in MONTHS>

Hoarseness from Symbicort is probably more likely than is reported. Astra Zeneca reports a number of "rare" side effects...check it out. Both me and my mother became hoarse, back aches, muscle spasms, etc. almost immediately after beginning to take Symbicort. I never associated all of the illnesses I was suddenly suffering from until I woke up one morning and I had severe eye pain in my socket. It was so odd I googled and sure enough it's a known side effect, according to AS, and is frequently reported on the internet. If you're getting sick and your doctors can't figure out why research.

I have also lost my voice since taking Symbicort. It has been a month so far and I still do not have my voice back. I stopped using the inhaler 2 weeks ago.

I too had voice problems while on Symbicort and had to stop public speaking. Two days off it, however, and my voice is great!
