  • Breathing problems that are becoming worse
  • A very fast heart rate (tachycardia)
  • Agitation, aggression, anxiety, or restlessness
  • Depression
  • Osteoporosis
  • A frequent or severe infection of any type
  • Signs of an allergic reaction, including an unexplained rash, hives, itching, unexplained swelling, wheezing, or difficulty breathing or swallowing.
     
Other Advair warnings and precautions apply to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as people who have certain allergies (including allergies to foods, dyes, or preservatives). Also, you may not be able to take Advair if you have medical conditions such as high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and epilepsy.
