Inhaled corticosteroids

Has anyone experienced thrush from using Advair? I've been on a 500/50 dose for a couple months. I thought I was rinsing enough after each use.

  1. Hi Cherie, and thanks for your post - you've posed an excellent question. You may be aware that 'thrush' may be a complication or side effect, of using inhaled corticosteroids (ICS). Many members, in our community, have spoken about their own personal experiences in this regard.
    I thought you might find it helpful to look over some of this material. For your convenience, here is a link to several of those articles: https://asthma.net/search?s=thrush. I do hope you find the information is helpful in a practical way.
    Have you had an opportunity to discuss this with your physician as yet?
    Wishing you well,
