I was given this drug last week instead of Spiriva. There was no discussion beforehand ,it was just written on my repeat prescription: new inhaler.I had a really bad reaction to it which I won't go into to but it has left me back to where I was 2 years ago, constantly breathless and waking up coughing and wheezing through the night. I thought I was getting some quality of life back and am now back to square one. It hasn't helped that when I rang the surgery to report the reaction ,my GP was on holiday and I got the brush off from the receptionist as they were busy and she said she would put a note on my file for the doctor to see. It has left me feeling very depressed and I am not sure where to go from here. I feel like chucking all my drugs in the bin and giving up. Its the second time this year I have been given a drug that made me ill. The first time was a locum doctor at the hospital who overdosed me. Had anyone had this sort of thing happen and how do you deal with it? I have put a compliant into the surgery because it wasn't discussed with me and I wasn't warned nor was I monitored for any reaction. Thanks for reading this . any advice welcome. x
