Using advair and spiriva together

Common Questions and Answers about Using advair and spiriva together


I have cut down using the disk to Mon-wed-Friday and want to stop using it all together. The last dose was taken Wednesday morning and by Monday I was sick as a dog with fever and breathing problems. I started using it again Tuesday and today (Thursday) I am feeling much better. My question is this - Could I have been experiencing "rebound" effect of using the disk for a prolonged period of time? Are there withdrawal symptoms of discontinuing the product?
coughing phlegm from lungs for the past six months, have taken antibiotics with no results, did take predrisone together with SPIRIVA 18 mcg and ADVAIR 500/50 for the past month. Still coughing up phlegm and have limited lung capacity. Any suggestions comments.
I think you should sit down with your doctor and go over your symptoms together and then come up with a revised treatment plan. How are your PFT's at this point? You said your COPD was very mild 3 years ago, have PFT's been repeated since...sorry for the questions, I am just a curious nut LOL! What is most important is how you feel...if you are short of breath at times then it would stand to reason that you need inhalers. I know that there are recommended treatments for each stage of COPD...
is it safe to use spiriva and advair together my sister has had laryngitis for 4 weeks
Because of serious side of effects of both Advair and an inhaled steroid that did not contain salmeterol, I now rely solely on a nebulizer and an antihistamine. I take supplements to reduce inflammation and thin mucus. I have moderate COPD and am doing fairly well, but would benefit from a longer-lasting medication. Any suggestions?

Even when I used it once a day I'd get a very strained voice which is not good as a teacher. I swtiched to Spiriva which caused me to have an extremely dry mouth and my tongue was swelling. I went back to Advair the voice issues returned. I was supposed to also be using Asmanex at night but rarely did. Now I'm thinking of trying just the Asmanex along with the Singulair. Should I use it once a day or only at night?
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...
I have had a few tests and have seen 3 pulmonoligists, fired two of them and landed here locally to a pulmon. and I like him, he always talks to me as much as he needs to. He has me on Spiriva once a day and Symbicort twice a day. He just made the change yesterday from advair to Symbicort. The rescue inhaler is ProAir. I went in yesterday because I was so sick plus I have been getting thrush in my mouth constantly, that was the reason for the change and I always learn something from him.
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??
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.
I gave the medicine to someone who does has asthma. I'm now using spiriva, a nasal steriod spray, twice a day and an antiobotic spray, twice a day in addition to the Prilosec. Who has time to take all this medicine? I've been on the current medications for about a month and am considering cancelling my doctor's appointment next week. I create an excessive amount of saliva and my best description is that I get choked on it.
I just get these violent coughing attacks that literally feel and behave as if I inhaled a bread crumb, and my body suddenly and violently is trying to cough it up. And just like when we are choking, I have a hard time catching my breath during these violent choking fits. By the time I'm done 4-8 minutes later, I'm shaking, tears streaming down my face, and I've probably wet myself. Its horrible! Does this sound familiar to anyone?
