As above really.
I'm still fairly new to all this as only began inhaler therapy in March. Originally put on Ventolin but I was suffering sore/raw throat/chest and indigestion-like discomfort. Nurse suggested Spiriva, GP changed my prescription but said to keep Ventolin for reliever if necessary.
Better on Spiriva and talking to nurse it was probably the propellant in the Ventolin inhaler causing the sore/raw throat/chest so she changed it to Ventolin dry powder inhaler and said see how it goes. I was still getting the indigestion-like discomfort so she's suggested a change to Bricanyl as a reliever and I'm waiting to see GP to get prescription changed.
I'm not using the reliever at the moment, just the Spiriva but I do still get some indigestion-like discomfort although not as much. Discussing it with my dentist last week when I updated my medication for their records, she told me that both Spiriva and Ventolin do have side effect of indigestion.
Does anyone else have this or am I just unlucky? What do you use to relieve it? I'd rather use something "natural" than add another drug (with possible side effects) to my growing list.
