Using symbicort, also happened when I used advair. I'm ok with sprivia.
Hoarseness is a common side-effect from the steroid component of your Symbicort and Advair inhalers. There is no steroid in Spiriva.
Do you rinse your mouth out with water after using the inhalers?
This could help significantly.
I suppose your doctor is weighing the benefits of your steroid inhalers (which are significant) against your side-effect of hoarseness... and is not overly concerned.
You are sort of stuck between a rock and a hard place!
