Hi, Has anyone else had these side effects? I have tried Becotide, Seretide and one other. Every time I only lasted approximately 3 months before I gave up. I was on, and am on, Ventolin constantly. With the Becotide etc my lungs would dry out and I had a dry tight cough/wheeze. I needed to cough to dislodge the phlegm.This got more difficult and eventually the coughing caused hoarseness. The phlegm would catch in my throat and I would have to cough to dislodge it so I could breathe. At times this was difficult and it interfered with my breathing to the point where I had real fear. At this stage I'd give up as I was concerned that I would get to the stage where I couldn't dislodge it. Has anything like this happened to anyone else?
