Reviews for Daliresp
"My wife has been taking this medicine for 2 weeks for C.O.P.D. maintenance. It worked great for the C.O.P.D.; she use to cough constantly and had a hard time breathing, even while on prednisone. However within 2 hours of taking the Daliresp, she stopped coughing & began breathing well. However, she developed diarea , then after coming off the prednisone got severe back pain, and was not able to sleep. It seems to help the C.O.P.D. very well but the side effects may not be worth the breathing relief."
"Started taking Dailresp 3 mths ago. Noticed improvement in breathing in 1st week. Then started having nausea and loss of appetite. I also started having other reactions,insomnia, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bad thoughts about death. Over the last 2 mths it's gotten worse. I didn't know it could be the Dailresp. This morning I woke up at 1am couldn't go back to sleep because of thoughts of dying. It's 2pm I'm still awake(I can't sleep during the day). Got so bad I went to the ER today. The Doctor told me to stop the Dailresp. OK! I never had mental health issues before. I don't have any clue how long it will take to recover from the mental health issues I'm having."
"Same as previous comment. Made me sick to my stomach, serious diahrea. Only took for 4 days and felt terrible, like I had the flu. It did help the breathing, but not enough to put up with the side effects."
"Love what this does to improve my breathing but the diarrhea just wont go away and that is the worst side effect for me. I tried taking in the morning and got headaches and felt nauseous as well as having the diarrhea so took it at night but the diarrhea has persisted. If I can't take something to counter this side effect, I will stop taking as I can't go anywhere with the diarrhea."

"I just started taking Daliresp again 10-23-16 the only problem that I have is I can't sleep.I can't go to sleep or stay asleep.and when I do go to sleep it's only for a few hrs.than I am awake again.I take it before and stop taking it because I could sleep.I really don't know at this time if it works or not.haven't been on it long enough to know.that's one of the side effects.so what can u do to stay asleep?"
"I have COPD with mild bronchitis. I got the flu pretty bad this past flu season with lots of congestion and wheezing. Once the flu was gone my doctor suggested Daliresp 500 mcg to prevent future flare ups. That was on a Monday, 5 days ago. I took my 1st dose on Monday night. Tuesday morning I woke up feeling very tired. I took the 2nd dose Tuesday night. Woke up Wednesday feeling worse... a flu-ish feeling with exhaustion, body aches, and diarrhea. For some reason I gave it another chance Wednesday night, and when I woke up Thursday morning, forget it. I was so sick -- almost felt like I was poisoned. Could barely get up. No strength, no appetite, body aches, light headed. So I did not take it Thursday night. It is now Friday night (48 hours since my last dose) and I still feel very sick. I read that it can take around 4 days for Daliresp to leave your body. I'm hoping for a quick recovery. Needless to say Daliresp is not for me."
"It hasn't helped my severe COPD & acute exacerbations. My Dr. gave me samples to try but so far nothing. I will continue to take until all is gone then I have to call the Dr. about the results. I have extreme sweating & was sick to my stomach the 1st wk but now it's just every so often"
"Use Daliresp and have no difference in breathing. I do have side effects of insomnia, severe stomach pain and having bowel movements every time I go to the bathroom whether that's what I went in there for or not. Been on it a couple of weeks and took my last dose this morning. It's bad."
"Been on Daliresp for 6 weeks now and I feel great no side effects I feel so good I forget to take my inhaler twice a day. Thank you for this amazing medication."
"Had to stop taking due to severe insomnia. Stopped taking and still did not sleep for four days. Worked great on my breathing problems,"
"Wow! Almost died then I was put on Daliresp and now been on it for a year. Such a major improvement!! I can breath again!! Love this drug!!"
"Dalliresp did open me up but the side effects were bad so I had to stop it. Diarrhea, nausea so bad I had to take medicine for it. "
"Did improve wheezing symptoms when taken in conjunction with Advair Diskus, however caused sleep problems as well as digestive disturbances (12-16 bowel motions/day)."
"I seem to have lost my tasting abilities for foods."
"I love it I haven't had to go to the hospital now for 2 years.I do have trouble sleeping but take a otc sleep aide it helps."
"Grateful my Dr started me on Daliresp 2 1/2 yrs & I have not had bronchitis or a cold since & no side effects!"

"Been on Daliresp since September 2011, no adverse side effects at all. I find that it has helped my breathing greatly. Have not had and exacerbation since going on medication. Prior to Daliresp had 2 to 3 flare ups yearly."
