Do you have side effects from your asthma medications?

Comment from: K O, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: May 22

I use Advair and Ventolin but I am having really bad leg cramps at night. I can"t stand the pain and they make me feel sick and last about 20 minutes each and can travel to the other leg and lock another muscle.
