which is the best medication to use for for the treatment of copd
Well my father was diagnosed in February with COPD and immediatly started taking Spriva. I personally think it has done wonders. He gets around a lot better & can breath a lot better. Before he could hardly move without having a coughing attack & needing to sit down. When I picked up his prescripiton for this the pharmacist told me he has heard nothing but great responses about Spriva.
hey, my husband has been on spriva for about 5 years and it has worked wonders for him, also i'm proud of him cause he quit smoking after 30 years so i know that helped to. good luck, shirl621
This is just a comment but I am on both symbicort and spriva and have not needed bricanyl for my COPD.
I have moderate COPD and found that Advair worked better for me than Spriva. My doctor gave me samples of Spriva to try twice but I didn't find any improvement over Advair. My doctor did say that most patients did find Spriva to be helpful.
I was diagnosed with COPD in 2002 I have been taking Spiriva and Symbicort since then, and I am convinced that Spiriva helps me the best, also Symbicort reacts with my blood pressure medicine which is Diovan HCT.
like many others here, I take both symbacort and spiriva. I have had no problems with either, and I think I am well managed.
I started out on Spriva but it didn't help me much so I was given Symbicort which has helped tremendously. I was told I could continue on Spirva also but I don't like taking any more meds than absolutely necessary.
Symbicort has caused blood bruises on my arms, it makes my back hurt, and I have body pain. I use a rescue inhaler I use, but I think I may need my Sprivia, at times... I do feel better since I stopped Symbicort. No more body aches and pains...
