Anora ellipta

If anyone is using anora ellipta I would like to know how many days or weeks does it take to start feeling the positive effects after starting it.

Thanks for all replies

Regrettably, have only been on Anoro for 15days and had to change to other inhalers. I was disappointed after hearing all the positive comoments. Found the need to use Ventolin far to often. Spoke with consultant who advised change.

It’s a matter of’ horses for courses’

Hope it works well for you. Stay positive!

Relva Ellipta 92/22 and incruse ellipta 55

My consultant mentioned a new inhaler to be released shortly with all medications combined in one inhaler such as Anoro Which he will prescribe later.

I’ve read about one called Trelegy, I wonder if this is the one. Good luck with the relvar and incruse.

I've been in it for many years. It's a fairly gentle-onset inhaler but it's reviews are excellent. I couldn't tolerate the more dynamic alternative but Anoro has caused me no problems.

I started it some two months ago and for me it worked very well and I felt a positive change within the first week.

thanks to everyone who responded. I just started anora yesterday and actually thought it made my breathing worse. I thought about stopping it, but then I wondered if it was just the type of drug that needs time to Agustin in the body in order to reach its optimal benefits. So I will stay with it for at least a week and see .

Good breathing to all

It's the best inhaler I've used. unfortunately,I had to stop it ,as I was told that I have asthma,rather than COPD which was the initial diagnosis.

I was told first by oncologist I had COPD and had the Spiro test and scored 136%. Will see pulmonologist in March but I wonder about asthma or what the heck? I do have lung cancer but I do not understand why i was toldi have copd. '

My GP told me I had COPD following a lung test done at the surgery. However,I was referred to the lung specialist as they were also querying lung fibrosis. I had further test done at the hospital, where it was discovered that I do have asthma and not COPD. The consultant did not think that I have lung fibrosis, but has requested a scan to discover if there is other damage done to my lungs. Had to stop taking Anora,as it's dangerous for people with asthma.
