Hello betmaxbaby I asked my Doctor for Roflumilast in the in June, he hesitated didn’t know enough about it, but did eventually, I then saw. Consultant who wanted to prescribe but was unable due to postcode lottery, thought I was lucky,

It didn’t do anything for me and I had most of the side effects, unusual for me, I’m normally pretty resilient , its trial and error, me personally will try anything, as I’m at stage 4 emphysema , I tried for 3months, some users say its taken 6months to get any benefit and reduced side effects, I hope you’re going to be one of the lucky one, I didn’t say I stopped taking.

Best of luck to you. Hope it works.

THKS for the info. Im just on the 250 low starter dose for 2 weeks so far. No sides yet. So your saying you got no help from it so you quit or your sides were what made u quit?

Hi betmaxbaby ,was both, if the side affects had eased I may have tried longer, but they didn’t ease t all, so gave up on it. Good luck.

I've been taking it for over a year, it's made a good difference in my breathing, I also use in cruse elipta, comifent, and advair inhalers.

I’ve taken it for a year and improves mucus overproduction and breathe better. The side effect is it may cause Loose bowels and weight loss. For me it actually keeps me regulated. Hope that helps
