Trelegy Ellipta

Trelegy Ellipta

Dr is changing me from Symbicort and Spiriva Respimat to Once a ay Trelegy Ellipta. Has anyone used this before? How did it work for you?

You may find that it works well for you. It has the LABA, LAMA and ICS that you were getting with the Symbicort and Spiriva. It may also be less expensive since it's just one med instead of two. It may not work as well as you would like, so you're going to have to be the judge of how well you think it works. Even though it has a LAMA, LABA and ICS, the actual chemical compounds are different and you may find that what's in Trelegy doesn't work as well for you as what was in Symbicort and Spiriva. You could also find that it's the best thing that's happened to you. You'll just have to see. How it works for someone else has no bearing on how it will work for you.

I was told to take Spiriva in the morning as there is a stimulant in it and can effect sleep.

Hello ALL: hope you find the drug's effects tolerable for your condition. There is often a discount coupon available on the GSK website here:.

If you have not used a dry-powder type inhaler before, remember to gargle/rinse after each use.

Wishing you better breathing in the days ahead.
