    I have recently experienced a similar problem, in that my lungs didn't respond in the same way to the Fobumix - I noticed the difference as soon as I inhaled it and had to dig out a spare symbicort to settle my lungs down again. I spoke to the pharmacist and they immediately replaced the fobumix and put me back on symbicort
