Any experiences with Trelegy Ellipta?

Any experiences with Trelegy Ellipta?

Has anyone used Trelegy Ellipta? I have tried Anoro which didn't work and currently using Symbicort which isn't working well either. In fact if I use Ipratropium/Albuterol 2X a day via Nebulizer it works better than Symicort...my plan will not cover Spiriva (Medicare D)...so, any experiences with Trelegy?

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?

Has anyone tried any natural methods for your COPD?

Has anyone tried any natural methods for your COPD?

Has anyone tried any natural methods for your COPD? If so, please let me know if any have worked at all please. I am currently on Spiriva and Symbicort and the out of pocket costs are ridiculous. Also the side effects on the Symbicort are not making me feel so hot. The symbicort also caused me to have severe anxiety and out of control eating issues. Is this normal? I mean, truly, I want to eat 24-7 and I never eat over 2000 calories a day. This is insane.
