15 Jul 2012 I had spontaneous palpitations and I also had 2 panic attacks while on it, which I have never had before. As soon as I stopped the medication, no more palpitations. Advair has the black box label warning and has reportedly been responsible for 4000 of 5000 asthma related deaths.

14 Jan 2012 Advair has been amazing for me. I used to be hospitalized at least once a year for my asthma; now it is so well controlled that even doctors can hardly tell it's there. I once had to go off of advair for a few months, and my asthma definitely worsened. However, that all cleared up once I began using it again.
