 3  Adult onset asthma First few days were great. I noticed an almost instant improvement in my ability to breathe. No more tightness in my chest. By day 4 tightness was coming back, but I've developed a consistent headache and extreme agitation that causes me to tremble. I have to stop taking it. These side effects are awful, and not an even trade of symptoms. :( It takes this medicine time to show side effects. Give it a good chance before you throw it out. But listen to your body.

 1  Pulmonary fibrosis, inflamation I was doing 4 puffs twice a day and had immediate side effects, couldn’t breathe well, more wheezing, I felt extremely lethargic almost like somebody drugged me. I got a bad yeast infection in my mouth, I feel achy, along with muscle pain, fatigue, headaches, very nauseous.

 5  tracheal scar tissue None I have been taking various inhaled corticosteriods for 12 years to prevent scar tissue in my trachea from growing (from intubation trauma) and I have not had side effects from them. I was nervous about using it while pregnant, but I had 2 healthy pregnancies with normal birth weight babies. I do always rinse my mouth out after using the inhaler. F 30 4 years

 2  slight short cough for 4 months this did not do anything to help my cough, not even sure I have asthma, I think it's a cough from allergies, but drs only spend 15-20 min with you...decided to taper off of qvar, that's when I started having stomach problems; severe bloating & nausea since my last dose, can hardly eat. carefully consider if you need this as getting off of it, even after a short time, is not fun. F 48 45 days

 1  Asthma maintenance Major nonstop headaches daily and dizziness Ive been taking QVAR for the last two weeks and have noticed an increase in headache pain and dizziness. It would happen daily with no relief even with pain meds. The only change in my life was I started using the QVAR. Ive stopped the medication as of yesterday. F 36 2 weeks

 1   Every day I took this inhaler, I found it harder and harder to breathe. I felt like I had a heavy weight on my chest. I quit after 7 days. This is not a cure. It says on a medical website that it suppresses your immune system. Now I have an ear infection to be treated for. I would recommend changing your diet for a real cure. It has to do with inflammation. Read 'The Allergy & Asthma Cure' by Fred Pescatore. Makes more sense. F 60 7 days

 1  Asthma The first couple of days were fine. After that, my asthma gradually worsened similar to my experience with Advair. Then I got a sore throat and thrush. Eventually, I got severe vertigo and nausea. My vision also changed. I decided I cannot live like that so I quit. My allergist thinks I'm non-compliant. When I quit my asthma improved and the nausea and dizziness disappeared. The drug companies are making a fortune of these drugs. I intend to read after market studies, before I take anything else.

QVAR 80  (BECLOMETHASONE DIPROPIONATE):  Beclomethasone is used to prevent and control symptoms (wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works by reducing the swelling of the airways in the lungs to make breathing easier. This medication must be used regularly to prevent breathing problems (attacks of wheezing/shortness of breath). It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve an asthma attack. If an attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler as prescribed.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
