I have recently been dianosed with asthma, over the last year I would say. I went to the doctor complaining of a constant cough that mostly effects me at night. My doctor said that since I have had several episodes of chronic bronchittus, this may have brought on adult asthma. I have never smoked, and have always been very active. I have been on 3 different asthma medications, Advair, Flovent, and now Symbicort. Does anyone know more about these medications. They took me off of Advair because they said it was not safe, and I didn't like the way Flovent worked, but from what I have read, Symicort is almost like Adviar. They haven't tested me for allergies. Is this normal? Any info would be appreciated.
