Tryung Sample Of Tudorza Inhaler

Tryung Sample Of Tudorza Inhaler

My pulmonary dr gave me a sample of Tudorza inhaler to try. I've been using it for a couple weeks, but not sure it's making a difference. Was wondering if others are using and what has been your experience. I just hate taking medications if I don't feel they are helpful.

Has Anyone Had An Allergic Rash Reaction To Spiriva Respimat Or Tudorza Pressair?

Has Anyone Had An Allergic Rash Reaction To Spiriva Respimat Or Tudorza Pressair?

Just recently had Spiriva Respimat added to Advair Dickus to help with my shortness of breath. It worked great, I felt like a new person. I was able to increase my activities without shortness of breath BUT I developed a rash. Doctor switch me to Tudorza Pressair which didn't work as well and I still got a rash. Has anyone had any luck with allergy medication to control this reaction?

A MyCOPDTeam Member said:

I have a dreadful rash at the moment - think some is psoriasis but the rest is an allergic reaction to a medication didn't think of the spiolto yet

This Year I Will Be Going On Medicare. Looking For A Plan To Cover COPD Meds And Inhalers.
