Advice & Tips: it works well for me. It takes a month to take effect. I started it with Flonase and I only took it during my bad allergy season. The doctor advised taking Flonase all year but I didn't want to take more drugs then absolutely necessary. Being off Flonase has been okay (I did and still do take my other med). When allergy season is upon me, I have a harder time breathing but can deal with it... I took a month break from the meds just to see what it would be like. I had a lot of side effects and noticed being off it right away b/c my wheezing came back quickly...

Advice & Tips: Makes me pretty shaky, if you haven't taken it before, take it in the morning, as it tends to make me a little too much caffeine-y. No significant difference yet, but am taking it in concert with prednisone so not sure what it doing what.
