I have recently been dignosed with glaucoma and the consultant told me that the cause was probably my Inhaler. I have mild COPD and Bronchiectasis and use Spiriva and Salbutamol daily. I also use Mometasone nasel spray to stop the mucus in my nose going on to my chest.
Has anyone else developed glaucoma caused by Spiriva?
My lung consultant has never warned me about this, nor has my doctor or respitory
It seems we can't win. I get the lung problem under control and then I have to start sorting out my eyes. ( I am going for Laser trabeculoplasty which it is hoped will keep the glaucoma under temporary control)
