I took advair of and on fo ra year. Had to stop because I was getting such horrible cramps in my hands. I'm a pianist so I had to switch to symbicort.

My calfs cramp at night. If I push really hard into the muscle, it relaxes, though it hurts at first. I also found increasing potassium by eating a lot of bananas helped.

Hi wezman,

Cramps are listed as an infrequent, and less severe, side effect of Advair in our Drugs & Medications Center. Here are some more reviews from WebMD users that you may be interested in reading in addition to those who have already posted here.

Best wishes,
