I have hoarseness (quite severe) due to Salmeterol in Advair or Vilanterol in Breo Ellipta. I gargle with warm water after each inhalation, but hoarseness persists throughout the day. Is there a COPD / asthma medication that does not have this side-effect? I do need to take the ICS / LABA combo. TIA.
I've had hoarseness since I started using Advair about 7 years ago. Last summer I was switched to Breo and my voice is still very hoarse.
I was on Spiriva respimat and Advair... switched to Stiolto respimat. Dr said don't take Advair with Stiolto respimat. Haven't had thrush since taking... (about 9 - 12 months). But gargle with water after taking each morning.
