Taking advair and spiriva together

Common Questions and Answers about Taking advair and spiriva together

spiriva

There are no withdrawl symptoms that I know of. And just to add....if you are not taking Advair as prescribed and you DO have an asthma attack, this drug will not help you. It is not a fast acting medication. Be sure to have albuterol or the like near by.
They last about four hours and are considered the rescue inhaler. Advair and Spiriva is a common combination of meds for COPD patients. However, you should also have a rescue inhlaer containing some form of albuterol. Combivent is another option used by many COPD patients. It contains albuterol and ipatropium. Combivent may be off the market in the US though as the EPA has banned the use of CFC's propelants in inhalers.
So far I've tried advair (all doses), albuterol CFC and HFA, and Asmanex. The advair and albuterol worked great for about 4 months but then all of the sudden I started getting the effects noted above from the very same inhalers. Now they all do this, no matter what. All make me very jittery for some reason. My doctor thinks I somehow becamse very sensitive all of the sudden to these medications (both inhaled crushed pills and the propellant inhalers) but does not know why...
Were you put on oxygen before or after you took Advair and Spiriva? Advair was killing me (literally) and I quit Spiriva after only taking it briefly because it turned my lung secretions to glue. It is very drying. Anyway, if you went on oxygen after taking this garbage, find another doctor.
I've also been taking advair and spiriva at the same time because I keep wheezing but the pulmonologist keep saying that my PFT scores are ok. but I never wheezed before when I exhaled??
I was taking prednisone this year for about 2 months total and read it causes bone loss/high sugar. how long can I take it safely, can I take 10mg/day for 6 months to a year?
It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
My partner and I were hoping to get our lives back on track this year, and now this. It is almost like we are doomed not to be together! You and I have some similarities. I don't get winded walking either, so I disagree with your doc on that one. There is a scale, I forget the name of it just now, but you and I fall into the catagory of "breathless on exertion" - you with the stairs, me with hills etc.
One interesting bit, 10 years ago a Dr said I had allergies to grass and trees and gave me allergy shots which worked for about 2 years and 2 years after I stopped taking them. Retested this year, including the blood test, and said I wasn't allergic to anything. I can feel the depression in all of your comments and I am there too.
I have been to the heart doctor (everything normal there), Pulmonologist (maybe asthma maybe GERD), Family doctor (COPD) taking benzo(sp) numbing for throat (not working) Taking Advair (still coughing). Last episode last week, ended up in emergency room, deep gash on elbow and broken finger where I black out and fell against stove in kitchen while trying to fix supper.
Hi all, I've noticed the orange-tongue simptons few days ago. I'm 25 years old and my diet has worsen in last months. Five months ago I started taking B1-6-12 vitamin for three months. I don't smoke and don't drink coffee either. But during last weeks I've taking green tea after lunchs. Could this be the reason?
