Symbicort and massive flem
I have been on symbicort for three weeks and I feel better after taking it.  But lately I am coughing up large amounts of mucus/flem and it is brownish/white and very hard in texture...is this normal?  Do I report this to my doctor?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The inhaler may cause dilatation of the airways, relieve bronchospasm and hence may be causing cough, the cough symptoms are likely to increase in an effort to bring out the secretions. This is important as it helps to bring out the secretions thus clearing the obstruction and the infection. Repeated steam inhalations can help loosen up and bring out the secretions, though this should be done prior to meals.  

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
