I've been using Tudorza twice a day for about 4 years...don't feel I've had any problems with it. How is it bothering your eyes?
I am using tudorza,one of the side effects is sore eyes (dry eyes).went to eye doctor,and she said that's what it is.using something for my dry eyes twice a day,and it is helping .
It could be you are allergic to it. Check with your Dr and he may put you on something else.
I've been on Tudorza for more than two years and Spiriva (basically the same thing) for many years before. Eye problems are listed as possible side effects, but in my case it took a while. My eye doctor calls it "dry eyes" and I can't wear contact lenses comfortably anymore. Whenever my eyes feel irritated, over-the-counter eye drops work fine for me, though. If that doesn't help you, to be safe you probably should see an eye doctor.
By the way, @A MyCOPDTeam Member, Tudorza has a different kind of delivery system from other inhalers and it won't work unless held firmly between the lips (I actually need my teeth, too) so there's no chance it's getting in our eyes. I wonder what's going to happen if I get weaker, though, because there are times that it's really hard to inhale with enough strength to trigger the mechanism that releases the medicine.
Any inhaler should be completely in your mouth when doing an actuation, if not, there's a chance it may reach your eyes! NOT GOOD!!!
