I use the meds according to the Dr instructions you don't want to double up on the same meds. I can pair Tudorza 2/day with Breo 1/day. Spiriva 1/day with Symbicort 2/day at present I use Anoro 1/day and Qvar 2/day. I don't know what or how much to say we are not supposed to try to sell or prescribe certain meds but over the years I have tried a lot of them some worked some didn't, some I had more trouble with than others right now I am having trouble with my shoulders and arms that might be from the Anoro. My right shoulder needs replacement and I can't get it, I have tried pain patches, ointment and shots in it. At one time it was so bad I told my Arthritis dr. that we had to do something I was so sick and could not get my lungs cleared up and in so much pain from my shoulder. I am lucky I have an awesome group of Drs. and I make sure they all know what is going on and if a med doesn't work I don't take it. She immediately wrote me a prescription for 875mm anti-biotic and put a shot in my shoulder, I refer to it as her magic elixter, she gave me a shot in my hips the same way several years before. The shot helped my shoulder for the first time it didn't throb constantly and the anti-biotic helped clear up my lungs. I also depend on a pharmacist to make a mouth wash to clear up the yeast when I get it.
Breath easy and stay safe

Never heard of it Jim. I use Spiriva. Based on the internet info regarding Turdoza it is different than Spiriva. However they sound similar in that they are both maintenance inhalers. I use Spiviva in the morning with Symbicort. They work pretty well for me.

I've used Spiriva for a few years now. Being a maintenance med., I can't say how well it works, since I don't know what the natural progression of the disease would have been. I would imagine things would be worse without it, however. My pulmonologist swears by it.

I use a mouth made up of equal amounts of liquid benadryl and liquid
mylanta shake it up and rinse your mouth out! Don't swallow it! That's what a Dr told me to use.. Works pretty good.

Yes, I've heard of it and use it, it goes under the brand name of Spiriva ( Tiotropium} here in the UK.It helps relax the muscles in the airways which makes it easier to breathe I only have to inhale it once a day.
But remember it is only a maintenance medicine, not a rescue inhaler if offered take it.
