Breztri

Breztri

I just heard of a puffer for copd called Breztri, it has been out since 2020, I read on Google comparing it to trelegy, it seems to be much better. My doctor put me on trelegy a month ago, I do not find it helps much, has anyone tried Breztri? If so how do you find it? Thanks.

I was on Trelegy and found it ok, but my specialist put me on Breztri because I could use it morning and night ,compared with morning only with Trelegy. I am very pleased with the Breztri.

Thanks, Jean, for the info. Trelegy never worked for me so maybe I am better off with my current meds. Will check with my Pulmo.

I've been using Spiriva Respimat for about 10 years, and I don't have a breathing problem when I use it. Maybe you could check with your doc. It's possible it isn't working for you for some reason… read more

Has Anyone Else Quit Smoking And Felt Great For The Warmer Months, Breathing Easy Then Gone Down Hill In The Colder Months?

Has Anyone Else Quit Smoking And Felt Great For The Warmer Months, Breathing Easy Then Gone Down Hill In The Colder Months?

I quite smoking in August this year. I felt great and could breathe again, walk and even jog a bit without a lot of issues. Here in NW Ohio the weather has turned cold early and stayed cold this year. I was off from my inhalers, not by choice, shortly before quitting smoking and felt I could feel even better if I were to start using the inhalers again. My Dr was able to give some samples of a new - to - me inhaler, Breztri. I went through the usual mild side effects and the weather turned cold… read more

My pcp has me on prednisone and a Z-Pack. Fingers crossed. If it doesn’t get much better, he wants me to have a CT Scan.
Thank you again for your help!!

I Have A Question About Inhalers For Emphysema. Which One Would You Recommend?

I have emphysema, but my old doc had me on asthma medicine. Well, new year, new formulary, Flovent no longer approved. I am seeing my new pulmonologist next Tuesday. I plan to discuss my meds with him, but I want to go in armed with as much info as I can get. I am looking for names of inhalers that are used for emphysema.
Thank you guys for all your help.
