Sprivia does not work for me. I am on Turdoza and Advair 500/50. Plus 4 breathing treatments a day, plus another load of drugs.

Hi Betty, I take symbicort, with a spacer after I take 2 puffs of ventolin! Then the spiriva! Then at night On!y take the symbicort! But was taught to use the spacer wrong now doing it right! Shake it up and put in spacer as you engage inhale only until you hear the whistle that means it has went down! Hold for 5 seconds exhale all you can! Wow what a difference that makes when done right!!
