Does Symbicort bother Asthma
My son's allergist put him on Symbicort for asthma without ever trying anything else...it seems to be woking well Does anyone know if the fast acting part of it bothers reflux? I know albuterol can. I wondered why he didn't try Flovent or something first. My 6yr old with reflux is on Flovent. Thanks, Debbie

This title should have said "Does Symbicort bother reflux"

Mine are also on flovent. I have not had problems with flovent bothering reflux but ours is bothered by albuterol as you mentioned. I would wonder if the fast acting part might be an issue. Have you checked the Rx Fact sheet that came with the medicine?

Stinks to have reflux and asthma. Its not a fun combo. I hope the meds work without aggravating the reflux! If it does I might ask why they didn't try flovent since it worked for your 6 yr old.
Check with your
doctor first!
