I have just restarted spiriva- when I originally tried it, it was felt that it didnt make a significant enough difference to me. A couple of months down the line and have been struggling badly with the pollen- having failed since May to get pred below 20mg and keep it there. Everytime I reduce my peak flow nosedives and I end up back at drs very wheezy (and back on 30/40mg pred.)
Anyway- having picked up yet another lovely chest infection- my 2nd in 3 weeks- it was decided that giving spiriva another go was potentially beneficial. So now I have rambled my question is-
Is there any evidence either way to indicate whether spiriva or atrovent is more effective in asthma?
Any input would be greatly appreciated
