Reviews for Breo Ellipta

Halo · Taken for 1 to 6 months June 10, 2019

“Breo definitely helped with breathing but the side effects are not good for me. On Breo for 3 months and found I gained 20 pounds, was always hungry, excessive phlegm, continually tired, leg cramps in the morning, extreme uncomfortable bloating to the point I thought I would bust. So no....it doesn’t work for me.”

“I have chronic asthma I have been on Breo for 3 months. I am able to breathe . Not used any ventolin at all. At first I had dizzy spells a couple of times which lasted for a few hours. I was full of energy and so happy that I am able to do my house chores without any issues. After a while I noticed my scalp itchy and dry. My muscles started to ache, my joints specially. I started to gain weight, hungry all the time. I was becoming tired unable to concentrate. My face bloated, I was retaining fluid, which I noticed when I took off my socks. Had to buy some new shoes and to my amazement I had to buy a size bigger. What do you do , put up with side effects to breathe ?”

“Doctor gave me a sample. Used it 3 days. I do think it helped my breathing but I stopped using it. I had the worst headache ever. And terrible mouth pain. All of my teeth hurt and the entire inside of my mouth. Those problems were so painful that I stopped using it.”

“I am a 57 woman with very early COPD due to smoking for 30 years. I have been on Breo for 3 months and it has worked great for me! No shortness of breath while walking like before. I have had leg pain but could be from the statin I'm taking. I would say the benefits I've received from this drug far out weigh the slight side effects I've experienced.”

“It somewhat works. It does not last a full 24 hours as they claim. Last about 14 hours. I'm going to stop using it because of the price. Way too costly. They also change the price constantly. Can't wait until all these companies patents run out on long term inhalers so I can get a generic version.”

“My pulmonologist prescribed Breo Ellipta for a lung infection so despite the chain of side-affects I did the one month course. It did alleviate the issues I was having along with a course of other steroids but going forward, No Thank You. I use my nebulizer something else which I should have reverted to in the first place and it works much better”

“I had intense wheezing originating from my throat that prevented me from falling asleep. After using other medications did not resolve the issue, Breo did. When the wheezing returns I use Breo once or twice (one per day) to eliminate the wheezing.”
