 1  Asthma - coughing, weezing, etc. Gained 25 lbs, depression, high blood pressure, extreme dizzy spells, stomach cramps, constantly hungry, moody, anti-social, worsened asthma symptoms, loss of periods, muscle fatique, overall fatique (falling asleep virtually everywhere and anywhere), acne, thinning hair, loss of focus, slipping behind in school, generally dazed feelings and actions, agression, basically I became fat, miserable, and suicidal. I do ballet. The depression and weight gain nearly ended my career. Once I was off the meds and getting back in shape, I was sidelined for 2 weeks with tendonitis. If I hadn't gotten off the meds, I think they would have killed me. And if they didn't the depression certainly would have. I wouldn't recommend Pulmicort to anyone - avoid it if you can.

 5  cronic coughing asthma Only good. Sometimes as we age, things don't work as well and we wonder about the causes, but so far, so good. It is the only thing other than Prednisone that has worked to control the cough. I do have osteopenia, and a strong family history of osteoporosis. The pulmicort adds to the risk. I would love to not have allergies, and not cough, but this is the best help I've found so far, and I've tried most things out there. F 53 10 years

Easty to take meds in twist & inhale dispenser. M 36 4 days

 3  asthma mood swings, irritability, finger nail and toe nail biting. Preschool teacher complained about change in mood and my son not wanting to participate in activities the way he used to. I am very worried about the side effects and if they are worth it. My son was a lot happier, calmer and cooperative before the meds. I am also concerned about his slowing growth, no change at all in the 6 months he has been on it, plus he has lost weight, complains often of a tummy ache and his bowls have been crazy since beginning this medication. Also concerned about the other asthma meds he is on. The night time coughing and wheezing have stopped, but like others, I am looking for homeopathic rememdies. M 3 6 months

 5  Asthma None My son started taking this daily at age 3 for his asthma, he took it for about one year. It helped his asthma tremendously and even after stopping it his asthma problems did not return until about 3 years later. He did not experience any side effects that we noticed. M 8 1 years

 3  Recurring Bronchiolitis Irritability, eating excessively, First couple of days he slept 3-4 hours per day. My child is turning into a monster on this medications. He is 9months old and will be on it for 2 months, but I am not sure I can cope with the tantroms that he has started throwing. Usually, he is a mild tempered baby, but since being on this medication a couple of days, he cries excessively. M 1 4 days

 1  Prescribed for asthma Sudden change in behavior. Complaints of fatigue; loss of appetite; disobedient. Teachers not pleased with his sudden change of behavior. Used to be a very normal child. I'm pretty sure the drug industry is still experimenting on kids of this medicine. Very disappointed. M 4 2 months

 3  asthma symptoms w/ colds Aggression; disobedience; moodiness; withdrawn; complained of penis pain (thank goodness I also read that here!); experienced urinating accidents after being potty trained since he was 2. This medicine seemed to help with the wheezing but I agree with so many comments here that I'm not sure it's worth it. I am in the process of pursuing homeopathic treatment & a visit to an ENT for a look at his tonsils & adenoids. M 2.7 6 months

 4  asthma None so far I have had it for years but was too lazy to remember. I always used albuterol inhalers daily. I had 3 old containers of Pulmicort and decided to give it a try. I have not used my inhaler in 2 weeks. I take 2 puffs in am and pm. M 55 2 weeks

 1  cold-related Asthma depressed, severe mood swings, irritable, very tired, unable to cope with anything with falling apart My toddler was prescribed Pulmicort to control his cold-related asthma. We were instructed start the medicine at the first sign of a cold. We noticed that after 2 to 3 days, when the medicine had built enough in his body he would become lethargic, depressed, easily upset, unable to cope with just about anything and extremely withdrawn. Recently his behavior reached a new extreme that we have decided to try stopping the Pulmicort to see what happens. Within 2 days he was this happy, well-adjusted, positive and engaged boy, in brief a completely different person. His new doctor has started him on Singulair and he seems to be responding well to it, in the meantime we treat him with Albuterol on a very strict as needed basis. I will never touch Pulmicort again! M 3.5 2 years

 4  uncontrolled wheezing definitely a big weight gain for my son. we've noticed some aggression issues (hitting, yelling) but we chalked it up to being a 2 year old easy to take from his nebulizer and i don't have the worry from side effects as I did with oral prednisone he'd been on so many times before. M 2 1 months

 5  asthma none Switched from Singulair to Pulmicort for planning pregnancy (pulmicort was safer) and thru pregnancy. Lowest dose - 180mcg 1x per day - no problems with the medications. Greatly helped keep my asthma in control (mild asthmatic). F 35 5 years
