Azmacort Side Effects: Final Thoughts
It is possible that you may experience some or none of the Azmacort side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking Azmacort. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of Azmacort, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
