I have been diagnosed with having asthmatic bronchitis since I was 11. I was prescribed Advair a couple of years ago. I took it for months, but then noticed all it was doing was making my asthma worse. Sudden attacks that were much worse than I was used to, tightness, wheezing, the whole bit. I decided to stop taking the medication. I know it is against what a doctor would tell you to do, but I couldn't keep doing that. I told my doctor I quit it, and why, and he said it was alright. Ever since then though, I have had steadily worsening attacks, and what's worse, I cannot even excercise, run, play for a long time with my son. I am not sure what to do at this point. After hearing the Advair Diskus recall/lawsuit commercials on television, I am beginning to wonder if the Advair did some kind of underlying damage to me, and I just never knew it because I did not think to suspect it. Any thoughts?
