For COPD, Maintenance: “This medicine has been a true miracle for me. I was on multiple medications, oxygen most of the day and night, and taking several nebulizing treatments a day. Have been on Foradil for two months and only use oxygen when I go to sleep at night, only take 3 nebulizing treatments a day, and have gotten off two of medications completely. I breathe better and feel better than I have in several years. I wish I had been given this medication much sooner. It is truly amazing the difference in the quality of my life that this medication has given me.”
For Asthma, Maintenance: “Very effective for controling Asthma, but side effects almost killed me. After a few months I became alergic to wheat. I would get attacks that would double my heart rate and reduce my blood pressure to half. Also I felt so weak that I could hardly stand up. Went to a heart speacialist and all kinds tests, they could not find anything wrong with my heart. After getting off this medication, no more problems with wheat. Note: I also experienced the same thing with Asmanex Twisthaler.”
For Asthma, Maintenance: “Foradil is the only drug that has ever worked for me so effectively and I've tried almost everything. My allergist tried to get me on something else as I have a side effect from Foradil where my hands shake but I don't mind. I'm staying in this drug for as long as I can.”
For Asthma, Maintenance: “Of all the asthma medications I have tried over the years Foradil has been the ONLY one that has given consistent, immediate and positive results.”
For COPD, Maintenance: “I've been using Foradil for 3 months and am very pleased with the results. I was using my Proventil every 3-4 hours. Now I use my inhaler maybe once a day.”
For Asthma, Maintenance: “Have had more positive experience with Foradil aerolizer than ever had with any asthma inhaler only need once in 12 hours from morning to morning.”
For COPD, Maintenance: “I have been on foradil for years, and have had to find a new replacement as it doesn't seem available any longer.”
For Asthma, Maintenance: “What a joke, the system. It works 1/3 of the time. I sniff with a straw.”
