Spiriva Respimat And Symbicort Which Should I Take First

A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A MyCOPDTeam Member

I take spiriva first thing in the morning literally as I get out of bed, then my 1st of 2 doses of symbicort (don't forget to rinse you mouth well) and 2nd doses 12 hrs later.

Medication Regimen

A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am prescribed Advair and Symbi-cort. The Advair is twice a day and Symbi-cort is once a day. What is the reccommended regimen to taking these drugs? Do I spread them out to 3 times a day - ie Advair morning and night with Symbi-cort at lunch? Can I take Advair and Symbi-cort together in the morning?? Just what are other members doing? Thanks.
