I use spiriva and symbicort and they work very well for me. My broncoscopy showed a powder accumulation from the symbicort on my vocal cord even though I gargle and rinse good after use. I saw an ENT Dr Wednesday and he said after gargling and rinsing to take a few sips of water to flush the residue off and into my stomach to get rid of it. I'm doing that and will see if it works whenever I have the next broncoscopy. Hope all works out well for you.
I use the same two plus an albuterol rescue inhaler
I have used both Advair and Symbicort. I did not do well on Advair. The Symbicort was deleted from the list of things I could use so I am now on Breo and it is working very well. Symbicort worked well while I was on it. You have to be sure and rinse your mouth and/or brush your teeth to avoid getting thrush with all these inhalers. I like Breo because I only have to use it once in the morning. The others had to be used two times a day.Good luck to you and breathe easy.
