Reviews for Tudorza Pressair

paulwill123 · Taken for 1 to 2 years · April 29, 2013

For COPD: “I recently completed a year-long clinical trial with Forest Labs and went back to using my prior medication, Advair. I have since noticed a definite difference in my breathing, coughing and wheezing. I am returning to Tudorza immediately”

Marge E · December 28, 2013

For COPD, Maintenance: “I have had emphysema (COPD) for over 3 years and been on all the typical long-term medications including Advair, Spiriva, Symbicort, and lastly, Tudorza Pressair. By my 2nd day on Tudorza I was utterly amazed, I was able to draw a full breath that I could feel expand my lungs for the first time in what seemed like forever! My doctor was happy it worked so well and felt successful in finding the "right" medication to help me live a more active life; however, as you may find, Tudorza is NOT on my AARP insurance formulary. Although I did get approved a 3-month prescription, I still had to pay $85 for my share of the one month, which I simply could not afford. I had to give it up. I pray Tudorza gets on my formulary.”

broke on meds · Taken for 1 to 2 years · April 13, 2016

For COPD: “Tudorza had been a blessing since trying December 2015 until January 2016 when my insurance took it off the covered list. Can no longer afford the only inhaler that worked for me after 6 years of trying most every inhaler on the market. Insurance companies that make these type of changes should be in our shoes just for a day.”

For COPD: “I could not breathe very well until my doctor told me to try Tudorza . It is a life saver for me . I have had alot of different meds for my COPD , with no help until now . I start Medicare in a few months and the health plan I got does not cover it . I will be going without this life saving drug .”

For COPD, Maintenance: “I used Tudorza for one year, it worked great. I had a coupon that worked with my Medicare insurance. There is no longer a coupon that works with Medicare so unfortunately I have stopped using Tudorza. Do these companies not realize that people who are on Medicare cannot afford these expensive drugs and need these coupons?”

For COPD: “When I was diagnosed with COPD my doctor put me on Tudorza, what a miracle drug unfortunately my medical plan will not allow for me to have this. I pray some day I will be allowed to have this miracle drug again.”

For COPD: “I was using Tudorza for COPD and went back to Spiriva as there was no copay. After 2 weeks on the Spiriva I am back to Tudorza. It is so much better than the others there is no comparison. I will continue with this miracle inhaler.”

Frank · February 21, 2021

For COPD: “It did help for the breathing but gave me lots of side effects. Heart palpitations, chest pain, very dry mouth, fatigue, headaches and urinary retention were the most troublesome. These side effects did not go away with time. I could deal with some of them but not with others. I also notice that my resting heart rate went down from 60-65 to 50-55 while taking Turdoza. Could have been the cause of the fatigue? When I quit cold turkey, I had the worst withdrawal symptoms for weeks even though the pharmacist told me it could not come from the medication. As soon as I re-started the Turdoza, the symptoms lessen. I had to slowly quit. Still one of the worst experience of my life, especially the extreme fatigue, extreme shortness of breath and constant PVCs. I just could not function. So yes, there is no doubt in my mind that that drug does have withdrawal symptoms and that you must stop it slowly. Please note that this was MY experience and your mileage may vary.”

For COPD: “I too had to change to Spiriva because Medicare doesn't cover Turdoza. Figured " what's the difference anyway? An inhaler is an inhaler, right? Well, I've asked special permission from doctor today because they AREN'T all the same, are they? I'm short of breath again ! Odd, because Medicaid covered it but not Medicare.”

May · Taken for less than 1 month · May 27, 2019

For COPD: “Began Turdorza almost 2 weeks ago. Good stuff but now having trouble breathing with lots of pressure in my chest. So impressed with this med up until now. So disappointed that I won't be able to keep taking it. Atrovent and similar meds cause same problems but didn't work as well as Tudorza has.”

For COPD: “I do best with Tudorza. Prescription drug companies do not want to cover it, so my doctor sends in a special request. For me it works so much better than Spiriva. I can breathe without taking rescue inhaler so much. It is good we have choices on inhalers.”

For COPD, Maintenance: “I want the manufacturer to design a better mechanism to disperse the medicine for Turdoza, there are times that I have to inhale two or more times before it clicks. I don't have the extra breath to do that!! It happens quite frequently, enough to where I'm ready to find a different medicine. Thank you!”

For COPD: “It opens things up well but my case is advanced and it does not last more than 2 or 3 hours. My lung function is under 30% so YMMV. Also take Advair and albuterol. Good luck to all.”
