Side Effects Of Symbicort

Updated
Danny Howard Says:

I was taking symbicort to control my asthma. It was working for a while until I started to feel joint pain, a rash on my foot that was always wet and itched a lot. The hair on my feet fell out and my toes was always cold. I also developed a catarac in my righe eye. It became obvious that it was upseting my body chemistry. When I stoped taking it. I had extream withdrawal including shortness of breath, weakness and lost 15 pounds. I saw TV commercials that said it was not for asthma and was for COPD and emphysema. Did I receive the wrong drug for my condition?

Hello, Danny! How are you? I am very sorry about the problems that you had.

Actually, the wording says that is not for the treatment of acute/emergency asthma attacks. It cannot be used as a rescue inhaler, but yes, it is approved for the maintenance treatment of asthma.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I now have a rash for 4 1/2 years on my right foot below my knee. It itches and doesn't go away.
Is there any cream I can put on it to make it go away. The rash started after I took symbicort.
