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.

Inhaler Costs!
A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

With the insane cost of inhalers in the US, has anybody here purchased them from another country? I have seen where the Spiriva inhaler only costs $125.00 from Canada, but almost $400 here! I need help as I currently don't have ins & the out of pocket is killing me!

A MyCOPDTeam Member

I was getting them from an international pharmacy and it was much cheaper. Be sure and do your research. I was working with a Canadian pharmacy. There are many so you really have to check things out.

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.
