My gp has just changed me over to spiriva to take once a day from atrovent 4 times a day.
Was wondering whether anyone has any experiences as whether it has helped get more control?
I have been told that the spiriva replaces atrovent as it is a long acting version of the same drug. Compared it to salbutamol and salmetarol. But if admitted it is still safe to use ipatropium nebs. This has lead me to think that perhaps the two are safe to use together? As in not regularly, but if I was trying to manage an attack at home?
Has anyone else done this? Not planning on being stupid (I'm only in my 20s) but am curious! And would like to manage more of my attacks at home!
