Stiolto is a little different than many inhalers. Atrovent contains a short-acting bronchodilater combined with a corticosteroid - as does Combivent. Some people have unfavourable side effects from steroids -- thrush is one, as is loss of ability to talk (temporary). Stiolto has a long-acting bronchdilater and an anticholinergic (drying) agent. Stiolto is steroid free and used 1time daily. (Patients on Stiolto should almost always have access to albuterol or some other fast-acting bronchodilater as a "rescue inhaler").
