Every night when I went to bed I was kept awake by continuous wheezing. My husband also could not sleep for the wheezing noise I was making, Not to mention the worrying he was doing. I could not breath without keeping my head elevated so high that It kept me awake also. I talked with my doctor about this. She already had me on Singulair which obviously was not taking care of the problem.This was getting to be a real nuiesance. My doctor said she was going to try me on a new medication. So, she gave me a sample of Symbicort. It is a Steroid and is also very expensive. She suggested we try it first before I spent a lot of money on it. So I did. I noticed a big improvement within about ten minutes.My husband could not believe the difference We were both very happy. The next time I went back to see my doctor she gave me a prescribtion for the Symbicort and I have been breathing well since. The one thing that I have to remember is to rinse my mouth after each use or I might get sores in my mouth.That is not usually a problem though because I just wait and brush my teeth after each use.Symbicort is used every twelve hours and it actually lasts for twelve hours. Symbicort has a convienant counter on the top of the inhaler. It will let you know when your medication is getting low. I do recommend Symbicort Inhaler. For me, wheezing has almost become obsolete.
