It's usually a case of try it and see. What suits one person won't suit another and trying a new inhaler is the only way to know if it helps. It can be up to a month before the full benefit is felt if no adverse effects are felt in the meantime.

I loved my spiriva , becloforte and serevent for asthma and bronchiectasis. Had them for years. Consultant changed to Fostair and Incruse. Fewer inhalers and fewer puffs . I really did not want to change but glad I did now. They work better.Good luck. Sometimes new things are available and they work better.

Hello Looddog, They gave me Relvar Ellipta but it depends what dose if you have COPD, they gave me the high dose and I had an adverse reaction. I take spirava too plus ventolin and seretide 500, but as said its a case of try it and see, I have allergic reactions to drugs so am not a good guide line for new drugs. The one you have been given is supposed to be better and only needed once a day. Do try but any side effects please report them to the nurse who prescribed the drug OK.
