I now have emphysema, and Dr. gave me spiriva as treatment, TV say this is deadly for asmatics.
First of all, never believe a tv ad about medications, no matter what is said. I sit and yell at my tv for lying more often then not.Those ambulance chasers want to sue for a diabetic med that works to lower blood sugar for pete's sake. Is the dr who ordered a respiratory specialist? Does he know you have asthma?
There is no contraindication of asthma. Its not for acute breathing problems. Its for daily use to prevent problems and that would mean it wouldn't work for acute asthma attacks.
Go to spiriva.com and read about it. You'll feel better.
