    Mild (dry mouth)

Dosage: 250 mcg-50 mcg Daily
Advice & Tips: I'm supposed to take Advair twice daily but due to outrageous cost I only take once a day. I have to pay over $300.00. I also recommend using this right before you brush your teeth. That way you are getting it out of your mouth. It causes thrush if you don't rinse well. I think it might be contributing to some small amount of recently discovered cataracts:-(
Cost: $200+ monthly

Advice & Tips: the side effects sound scary to me so I only use it once a day. If I am getting sick or going through allergy attacks I will start using it twice a day. I am currently on a plan to get free Advair. I think what they charge is SINFUL! We have to pay our own insurance being self employed and I couldn't afford my meds from the awful economy.
Cost: < $25 monthly
