I took Spiriva a couple of years ago for 6 weeks and gained an unsightly 22 lbs, all on the midsection and nowhere else. After dieting off and on for the last 6 months I still cannot lose the weight. My midsection is all bulged out and I look terrible. Does anyone have an answer to my problem. Bill
All I need is for someone to come forth and try and give some kind of solution to the problem of weight gain from the inhaler Spiriva. I have gained weight from various medications in the past only to lose it when I discontinued the medication. I have not used Spiriva in 2 years, and yet the weight gained from using it still plagues me in spite of dieting. My belly is all blown out of shape and I look terrible. HELP!
I started using spiriva about 6 months ago... the weight gain is really bothering me and like most here it is around the middle and protruding stomach. It is really worrying me i have never had a weight problem,slways been 52/55 kilos. I intend to go off it,see my doctor and either get some other medication if there is some avsilsble,but this weight gain is seriously affecting me. I feel so uncomfortable with the added weight.
