Spiriva

Spiriva

Stopped Spiriva powder inhaler for a few days due to terrible scratchy throat, coughing and tight breathing in the evenings my Fev1 was a stable 71% but it went down to 61% without the Spiriva. The throat problem

/ breathing was much better though. Went back on it 2days ago and my Fev1 returned to 72%. Saw Gp today and have been given Spiriva Respimat to try so I hope this keeps my levels up.

Spiriva Respimat is very gentle on the throat so hope it works for you Chriskho :)

Hi, just to say, my throat has been scratchy & a bit sore over the last few days. I've put it down to all the allergens/pollens about in the heat. Good luck with your new inhaler. P
