Some of the most common Advair inhaler side effects include:
- Upper respiratory tract infections, such as the common cold
- A sore throat

Although side effects of Advair tend to be minor, there are some serious side effects of the medication that require immediate medical attention. Contact your healthcare provider right away if you experience problems such as depression, difficulty breathing or swallowing, or an irregular heart rhythm.
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).
