Dear friend, welcome to HCM!

Your cramping etc. is all due to excess theoasthalin/ asthalin+ salmeterol (all together??!).
This is not advisable.
Continue only Seroflo in minimum required dosage daily to control symptoms.

Haemoglobin drop is not explained.
Please verify if you have other concomittent heart and other disorders.
Do you get swollen legs/ankles?
Associated heart failure should be sought.

Recheck your levels after a week and see.

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck!
I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Thank you!
