I purposely try to use my inhaler as less as possible these days even though it seems like Im not breathing well 24-7 these days. I ran and found it hard to breathe the whole 15 minutes and when I got off- but 30 minutes later I felt I could breathe a little better. I also read you can use breathing techniques to help asthma...i forget where I read it but it could be worth googling.

What if you tried using only one? See how you feel taking just the advair one day, and the next day try your inhaler. It may be the combination. Even though the dr said it was ok, you could be experiencing a side effect

I decided today to go for a run for my cardio...so I took my rescue inhaler and advair 20 minutes apart in the hour before I went out for a run as instructed by my doctor. It made me feel like crap. Right now I'm more than a little shaky, my chest hurts and I'm a little lightheaded.
I miss running. I haven't been able to run since having an attack back in early october. Finally get a clean bill of health and my inhalers make me feel like crap. This blows.
