I have taken symbicort in the past without issue but everyone is different. If you are concerned, maybe share with your doctor and see if he/she has an alternative suggestion? I had pneumonia several years ago and it took forever for all the related breathing issues to go away.

I use symbicort for asthma. It contains budesonide which is a beta agonist. When in withdrawal, the increase of receptor sensitivity to adrenalin can make you feel restless / jittery.

I'm 10 monts off but still react to the budesonide so i try not to use it daily.

Thank you

Cottonbrain how do you feel at 10 months off?

Yes I am doing levabuterol nebulizer instead for right now

Steroids are horrible for me and the reason I was put on benzo to begin with
