Muscle Relaxers,symbicort,spiriva Respimat,prednisone

Is it alright to take a muscle relaxer with these,especially the prednisone and do they affect breathing?

While you're on prednisone you need the insulin only...It does not mean for the rest of your life, unless you're diabetic.

Medication Regimen

Medication Regimen

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.

I'm on the same medication. I was told to take the Avair and Spirva together in the morning.

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.
