So sorry the new melds did not work never had the ones you have was on spivira and fostair then had an appointment for first time with consultant who I was not happy with she put me on new one and told not to take the ones I had but was worse on her new one so phoned my Doc and told him I was not taking it anymore and wanted to go back to the ones I had which he agreed to. Think it is awful you can't easily go back to ones you had am afraid I would persist take care and hope you can get this sorted..
