Spiriva Respimat And Symbicort Which Should I Take First

Spiriva Respimat And Symbicort Which Should I Take First

Not having a regular doctor doesn't help much so hoping some ideas from here.
I take one dose daily of the spiriva and one dose twice a day of the symbicort.

Which one do most take first? Any advantage of one over the other? Or does it make any difference?

I do spiriva respamat first then do advair
Not sure if it makes a huge difference in the order they’re taken
In the hospital I did the nebulizer first, have one at home but don’t always need it,
Would be interesting to see how others do it

My husband uses Symbacort 2 puffs in the morning and bedtime. He uses Spariva mid day. He only uses his nebulizer when he really needs it.

I was wondering the same thing. I take 2 puffs of Symbicort in the morning and 2 puffs in the evening. I am also taking Spiriva once a day, but I am not sure when I should take it. I have been taking it around noon. I asked my lung doctor about it and said it didn't matter when I took it. He was irratated just because I asked. He has terrible bed side manner. I quit going to him.
