Spiriva twice a day

Common Questions and Answers about Spiriva twice a day


Avatar m tn If I stay on Advair (250), is it a good idea to either use it only once a day, or do twice a day but skip a day in between? All of this in order to hopefully avoid the side effects.
Avatar n tn I take Spiriva once a day and Advair twice a day. Then I take breatihing treatments three times a day. And I have an inhaler. I still wheez like crazy at different times of the day. Help! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/955603'>research</a>.
Avatar f tn I take 500 MDI of Advair twice a day and spiriva. I still smoke a little a day. I also have to work in a hot humid kitchen in the summer. I started having panic attacks when I would get busy and I would get winded easily and fustrated. I am off work presently but I want to go back soon. Anyone in a similar situation and if so, any suggestions.
Avatar m tn Typical asthma action plans call for Afrin twice a day for three days ONLY (never more than that), increased sinus rinses (two after the Afrin) up to 5 a day, and rescue inahler use exactly as prescribed. Unless you have an serious issue with your weight (anorexia, bulemia, thyroid issue...) I wouldn't worry about your weight right now. I will correct itself as soon as you are back to normal. Feel better.
Avatar n tn This is just something that I have been exeriencing the past couple iof months. I use Advair twice a day and Spiriva once a day. I also use albuterol (nebulizer) in the mornings to open up my lungs.
Avatar f tn I was exposed to a high concentrate of xylene 25 months ago, since then I have been to the ER 5 times. I have been seen by an allergie doctor, a ear, nose and throat doctor, a gastrointestinal doctor, pulmanary and heart doctor. I have been diagnosed with RAD, a parylized vocal cord, acid relux and a few, "well it could be". Currently I am taking Advair 250 twice a day, Spiriva once a day, Allegra D twice daily, Protonix twice a day, Compavent inhaler as needed.
Avatar m tn For fast relief asthma attacks I tkae albuterol but my physician prescribed me Asmanex and Foradil as my long acting meds. I take both twice a day. One of them have a steroid in it that she stated should keep me to very few attacks. I have been on the combination along with spiriva for the emphysema for approximately two years. My asthma attacks are very rare. I usually get one only when my body is under alot of stress or smoke (cigarette or other).
Avatar f tn I also have high blood pressure and take Lorel 5/20 twice a day. It was working fine until about a month ago when I realized my blood pressure was higher than usual (I am still taking Lotre 2 a day). I am sure it is the Symbicort, but I hate to stop using it because it too works so well. Any advice on what COPD medicine would have less of an drastic effect on blood pressure?
Avatar n tn I have emphysema. i use advair twice a day and spiriva one a day. The biggest problem for me is that I always seem to havemucus build up in the mornings. My doctor has told me to try mucinex, but that doesn't seem to work all the time. So i try using albuterol in the morning to help loosen up the mucus so that I can breath better.
Avatar n tn I was immediately referred to a pulomonary specialist who put me on Advair 250/50 twice a day. This inhalation treatment has stopped my chronic cough.
Avatar n tn The azithromycin program I have read on the internet is on the basis of taking azithromycin for 4 days twice a day (250mg) and then 750 mg once a week for 9 weeks to totally get rid of the bug. I am so sick of feeling **** that I would at this moment try anything. The doctor has started me off on Spiriva but this has replaced my combivent. He said he did not want to poison my system with antibiotics!
1300043 tn?1272816419 I have also been diagnosed with COPD and I am using my albuterol inhaler about 6 times a day along with Spiriva and another steroid inhaler so using it once a day or twice a month sounds like your basic Asthma. I understand the confusion in changes to your health. I posted a few weeks ago for help here and never even got a response so I am dealing with it all on my own. Good luck with everything. And you may want to just go get a check up to be sure.

Avatar f tn When the inflammation has gone, the airways are much less likely to become narrow and cause symptoms such as wheezing. Steroid inhalers are usually taken twice per day. If you have an exacerbation (flare-up) of your asthma symptoms, you may be advised to take the preventer inhaler more often. Please discuss these options with your doctor, he can guide you. Regards.
Avatar n tn I was refered by my primary to a pulmonologist and was put on a pred burst of 60mgx3 down to 1mgxd in a 15 day period. I also had an increse in advair to 500/50 and addition of Spiriva. Also flonase. As the pred taper was reduced the symptoms and mucus came back full force ! Is that common? Should I call my Dr. ? Do I need a repeat of a pred burst? I'm just miserable from all this mucus nothing seems to slow it down.
Avatar n tn Sometimes it was so bad it would make me feel like I was short of breath. anyway the doctor put me on spiriva which is a powder inhaler you use once a day, and nasalcort twice a day. It has been alittle over a week and the throat problem is gone and the mucus problem is almost gone. Sometimes is takes these meds 1 to 2 weeks before they start working. My mornings were the worse also. Gerd (acid reflux) also has these symptoms. which the ER doctor told me I had.
Avatar m tn Pradaxa 150mg one twice a day. Lasix 40 mg one once a day at night Spiriva Respimat two puffs once a day. (Helped a little but have issues using it.
Avatar n tn I am taking loratadine once a day, zantac 75 twice a day, spiriva once a day, nasalcort twice a day. And I do a nasal wash on my own (was not prescribe by dr.). Feels like I got alot of the gunk stuck in the roof of my mouth but not all of the time. It kind of builds up. And then the gunk inthe throat. sometimes it feels like the gunk fromthe roof of my mouth is closing up over my throat and I think I panic and have somekind of an attack. I am just going nuts with this.
Avatar m tn He prescribed a short regime of steroid and a full time cortisteroid inhalor twice a day. Also to continue use of daily Spiriva & emergency bronchodilator.
Avatar n tn Thinking at time that some one else did that.I fluh my sinus twice per day, using the Dr.formula that I purchse at the drug store, some times 3 times per day, all ways before going to bed. I would appreciate some advise.
Avatar m tn Metoprolol Tartrate 100mg one twice a day. Pradaxa 150mg one twice a day. Lasix 40 mg one once a day at night Spiriva Respimat two puffs once a day.
Avatar m tn have tested me for asthma, reflux, but everything seems to come back that these aren't the problem, I quit smoking 6 months ago and the problems are getting worse. I have been hospitalized twice in the last month and a half, only to see an EIN and have him tell me I have sinus problems and reflus, but I can go for a whole day without eating anything and the problem does not go away. I eat anything and my stomach bloates and my breathing becomes extremely difficult within 20 min.

Avatar f tn Currently I am taking Advair 250 twice a day, Spiriva once a day, Allegra D twice daily, Protonix twice a day, Compavent inhaler as needed. Douneb breathing treatments as needed, and 200mg Teslon Pearls for cough as needed, Astelyn Nasel spray once a day. Also IV steroids, I can't even count the number on those. I have had broncitis about 15 times in the past 25 months, and I have been hospitalized twice. I do not smoke, however I work at a furniture warehouse store in sales.
Avatar m tn Jerzygirl, No I have not quit yet but am down to 5 cigs a day after smoking pack to two packs a day. So Slowly getting there. Figure by the end of October and I am done with them. Jonkob, Yes there were signs: shortness of breath (put that off to lack of exercise), Pnemonia 4 times in the last 5 yrs, Colds everytime one was around. just didnt put the pieces together.
Avatar f tn Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day. Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
Avatar f tn For one, I do chest physiotherapy twice a day at a minimum to loosen my thick sputum using the Vest (a device that I put on, kind of looks like a life jacket, which is then hooked to a machine that pumps air in and out at a high frequency. This pounds my chest very effectively). I also nebulize many medications that helps thin my secretions as well as nebulized Tobramycin to keep my pseudomonas colonies at bay.
Avatar f tn So I think that it's a worthwhile point to make that the drug simply requires at least a 100-mg initial dose and consideration of twice-daily dosing rather than once a day.
417709 tn?1303734396 Now I use an inhaler about ever day and I do the spiriva ever day. God has seen fit for me make it this far. Hope to make it another sixty years,and still be in my right mind. I am a feamale and this has not been a walk in the park for me only by the grace of God am I still here. So please try to keep a good out look on life and keep a positive out look on life. From one that has bee on the silicosis road for awhile.
