 1  Asthma Coughing up mucous, severe sore throat, sinus congestion, headache, general malaise, headache. A new doctor started me on dulera after telling me I used my rescue inhaler too often. I have many health issues and my asthma is the least. This medicine instantly caused burning in my mouth even after the suggested rinsing of my month after use. After two weeks I have such a severe sore throat I can barely swallow or speak! My sinuses are completely inflamed and Iím having headaches. I already have a compromised immune system, seizures and bone loss so after doing research on this medication I am shocked that this doctor prescribed it for me! I stopped taking it yesterday and will never take it again. F 54 2 weeks
 1  Asthma I experienced central serous retinopathy in my eye from my husbands usage. He experienced irribility, weight gain, shaking hands I was not on the drug, my husband used it and it gave me a side effect just being around him. Horrible drug F 40

 3  Mild asthma Severe anxiety and depression. Fatique. Muscle spasms in feet and hands. Doctor had me on flonase and singular as well. Too much medication! It did work for telief of breathing. I didnt have to take my rescue inhaler much at all. Good improvement but the side effects are not for Everyone! I cannot wait to get off this medicine and feel well again. I am slowly cutting back on my dosage. F 62 3 months
 1  Breathing test and allergic asthma I will never use again! It's poison! Caused the back of my throat and roof of my mouth to be so irritated, red and inflamed.also a horse voice and constantly needing to clear my throat. I refuse to use another inhaled steroid! Also, don't know if this is related but my period has gone on past one week now . NOT normal for me. Goodbye dulera! Steroids are not good. Do not take unless absolutely necessary!!!! F 42 1 months

 1  breathing test 2 puffs felt like a kick in the chest. 15 minutes later I was dizzy, and felt about to faint. I had mild tachycardia, had to wait in doctor's office 3 hours, after taking Benadryl, for the symptoms to lessen. Since I can't take albuterol, I won't be taking any more breathing tests. F 70 1 times
2 puffs 1X D
 3  Asthma Extreme weight gain. I have gained close to 30lbs despite regulation of food consumption and exercise. Constant Sinus and Congestion in chest and nose. Coughing up thick mucus for about 6months now. Fluttering feeling under my ribs at times. Tired and lack of energy. F 46

 3  Asthma/Allergies Hoarseness, mucus, increased appetite, weight gain, numbness in arms/hands, and fatigue. Dulera has definitely helped me control my asthma. I would say that the constant mucus and the numb arms/hands are the worst. This is my second time in 2.5 years getting back on Dulera. I did not experience all of these side-effects the first time around. I only had the weight gain which I'm still trying to work off on top of the new weight! This week, I started to take 2 puffs every other day. My asthma is still under control for now, but I want to see how the rest of my body responds to my new regimen. If this side-effects continue, then I will ask my doctor for something else i suppose.... F 32 35 days

 2  Asthma The first couple of weeks I just noticed a little hoarseness, but at around a month I started having all kinds of side effects: strange headaches, tiredness, bad anxiety (which I don't normally have) and my period started coming every three weeks. I stopped taking it, and within the week the anxiety disappeared, within a couple of weeks the headaches went away and after about three months (!) my period returned to normal. I switched to Dulera from Asmanex because my doctor thought it would improve my lung function. I am not sure how well Dulera worked for me, because I couldn't stand the side effects. Not a good experience overall. Switching back to Asmanex. F 43 1 months
 4  Asthma Medication works well, noticed a change in my breathing immediately. Now after taking it a few months I've put on 15 pounds. M 43 3 months
 1   voice is hoarse, weird pressure in my head/A typical headache I guess, tingling around jaw line and head, tightness of chest, nausea... was on Advair for 9 yrs till insurance said they wouldn't cover it anymore.. Never had a problem with Advair.... gonna try something different. If that doesn't work I guess I will pay for Adair in full :( F 38 13 days

 3  Asthma Changes to menstrual cycle, weight gain Have been on dulera for 6 months. Previously periods were VERY regular, same day every month. Now I have no idea when they are going to occur. And I've gained weight. Was previously on advair for 10 years but doctor made me switch. Both had bad side effects, can't decide which are worse. F 22 6 months
2 puffs 1X D
 2  COPD heart palps. Weight gain of 20 lbs in a year. Dry mouth. Was horrific getting off this drug. I've been on a lot of melds including opiates, morphine, benzo and quit without any problems. I stopped Dulera due to side effects and so far it's been a week and I feel like I'm going to die. The muscle pain and weakness and nausea are the worst. F 60 1 years

 3   I gained about 20 pounds even though I work out three times a week and maintained the same diet. I have started to work out five times a week and increased the intensity of my workout 6 weeks ago and have gained another 5 pounds. Works well, I notice a difference in my normal breathing within two hours after taking. Does not have much of an effect on reducing asthma attacks during physical exertion. M 36 120 days

 2  Control asthma Hoarse voice, thick mucus It actually opened my airway but I could never talk through the copious amounts of phlem. My Medicare supplement cut me off and I had chest pains and now a cough. The inhaler would have cost over $400 without insurance. F 69 1 years
30 mg
 3  asthma It works but side effects really sucks. Im tired all the time, started to get headaches everyday. My main side effect that I really hated was gaining weight. My appetite has been the same but I gained 50+ pounds ever since I've been on it. I started to work out and became very depressed when I found out I didnt even lose a pound (I been working out for 3wks). I actually just maintained the same weight when I started. I recommend Dulera but if you have issues with your weight (like myself) then DO NOT TAKE IT. Im switching back to Advair. F 30 7 months
 4  Sensitivity to other asthma steroid Heavy hair loss, bloating, weight gain, numbness in limbs, atypical headache (felt deep in my brain), interfered with normal menstrual cycle, veins became highly visible and bulging. Withdrawl from Dulera was very painful. Yes, this medication works. But if it works for me using just 1 puff a day, clearly I don't need to be on it. The side effects are highly problematic and create much discomfort, more than any other inhaled corticorsteroid. Withdrawl needs to be monitored or done very slowly because it is very painful. It causes slightly less of the same side effects than Prednisone or Singulair. F 47 30 days

DULERA  (FORMOTEROL FUMARATE; MOMETASONE FUROATE):  This product is used to control and prevent symptoms (wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. It contains 2 medications: mometasone and formoterol. Mometasone belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works by reducing the irritation and swelling of the airways. Formoterol belongs to the class of drugs known as long-acting beta agonists. It works by opening airways in the lungs to make breathing easier. Controlling symptoms of breathing problems can decrease time lost from work or school. When used alone, long-acting beta agonists (such as formoterol) may rarely increase the risk of serious (sometimes fatal) asthma-related breathing problems. However, combination inhaled corticosteroid and long-acting beta agonists, such as this product, do not increase the risk of serious asthma-related breathing problems. This product should be used when breathing problems are not well controlled with one asthma-control medication (such as inhaled corticosteroid) or if your symptoms need combination treatment. Before using this medication, it is important to learn how to use it properly. This medication must be used regularly to be effective. It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve sudden asthma attacks. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler (such as albuterol, also called salbutamol in some countries) as prescribed.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
