REcently prescribed for me. What should I expect from this drug? I am told it will control exacerbations. Thanks barbil
I've also been on it since 12/20 no hospitalizations since being on it....my pulmonologist says it's what's kept me out of hospital!!!!!!
The FDA has approved a generic of dailiresp called roflumilast. Has anyone used it and does it work as well? I hate to change but my insurance company wants me to use the generic as I suppose it is much cheaper.
And yes, it does work, quite well.
He sent in for 500 mg. for 90 days. Then I see that it will cost me $447.00--I said no thanks!! Is this typical to pay? Is it really a difference maker in using it??
Check your neighborhood for a free clinic, @A MyCOPDTeam Member. Some will take rx’s, even if opened.
I’m involved as a patient investigator for the RELIANCE study, which is a head to head, comparative effectiveness research study looking at which works best, daliresp or prophylactic use of azithromycin in decreasing inflammation, therefore infections, therefore exacerbations and hospitalizations.

My pulmonary doctor prescribed Dailiresp and I have been taking it for about 2-3 weeks now. He told me that it might cause weight loss and diarrhea. Well he was right. It has wreaked havoc with my system. I have lost weight and had diarrhea. I need to lose weight so that part is ok, but the other......makes me feel terrible.
My husband is also taking it and has for some while and it does not have that effect on him. In fact, he thinks it greatly improved his breathing.
Has anyone had this… read more
I've tried it and got diarrhea. Then I tried it every other day with the same results. It is not a good med for me.
I do my neb 3 times a day and try for 4. I haven't smoked in 7 years. Tessalon Perles helped about 4 years ago and worthless now. I have Symbicort twice a day. (Wish I could find something else that wasn't so high in cost). I have chlo tuss which really doesn't help anymore. Any other suggestions.
Oh, when I have a flare-up and take antibiotics and prednisone, life is so nice, but dr. will not let me take it too often. I hear people take it daily. Please help!! It hurts so bad when I… read more
