Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Zit er in spiriva gluten?
    My question is : Does Spiriva contains gluten? I would like to know that
  • Can you loss large amounts of hair daily while taking spirit
    I ALSO TAKE. COLONAPIN .CYMBALTA.TRAZADONE . NORCO .NEXIUM . HAD A VERY SERIOUS ULCER OPERATION 3MONTHS AGO.
  • Has anyone got a cataract from spiriva?
    i had perfect vision and i used spiriva and now i have cataracts, had surgery on one eye now have to go back for my other eye ,
  • Dr. switched me from advair and spiriva to tudorza. shouldn't i still stay with advair
    Doc said drop Spiriva AND Advair and start exclusively on Tudorza.



    Wouldn't staying with Advair in addition to Tudorza be helpful?

    (Or would it decrease Tudorza's effectiveness?)



    I'm just finishing a 3-month bout with lung Pseudomonas infection. I'm regaining my strength, but still breath much more poorly upon (even minimal) exertion than before the Pseuomonas.



    Tudorza seems as equally effective as my Advair and Spiriva regimens did, but I still run out of breath much sooner than I did before the Pseudomonas hit.



    Will I ever regain my prior abilities? Should I combine ADVAIR with TUDORZA?

    Thanks
  • Did chantix cause hearing loss for you? (1 answer)
    After taking Chantix for about 5 weeks, I experienced a loud ringing in my right ear and suddenly lost about 50% hearing in that ear. The ringing and hearing loss did not go away. It has been two weeks since it started. The Chantix warning mentions hearing loss at the very end of "Other" side effects and I did not see this prior to taking Chantix, nor did my doctor mention it. I also had thyroid tests showing borderline problems (I've never had any issues with my thyroid before). I've also gained weight.

  • Side effect of spiriva on diabetis control
    I have been a diabetic for the past 30 years and could generally control my blood sugar by using Lantus and another fast effect insuine (ahich changed several time)Since I take Spiriva (started on february 15th 2014, I cannot control my blood sugar properly and get incoherent results (2,3 or even 4 gr)
  • Cfs/fibro, migraine
    A strange thing happened when I started taking the Chantix for my smoking cessation...
    MY MIGRAINES AND TENSION HEADACHES WENT AWAY!!!
    As horrible as they were, and as bad as I have prayed for them to go away, I did not even notice that I didn't have the excruciating headaches anymore!!
    I stopped taking the chantix and the headaches gradually came back but it took me awhile to make this correlation. Once I did, I started taking the chantix again. it started working immediately... taking the migraines and neck pain away again! Now, I can take 1/2 of a pill every other day and that seems to keep the migraines away! There are side effects and I don't know if it would work for everyone but it sure worked for me!
  • Really works to quit smoking
    Works great for quitting smoking! The first few weeks you dream in technicolor just like an anti depressant but then that goes away. The only side effect I had was constipation but it was a small price to pay for quitting after 37 years a smoker! I tried hypnotism, patches, etc. but this really worked. I've been smoke free for 9 months now.
  • Polymyalgia rheumatica (1 response)
    Diagnosed 12 months ago with type 2 diabetes - diet controlled. Diagnosed recently with polymyalgia rheumatica. Prescribed prednisone. This caused my blood sugar levels to skyrocket and. Now require insulin injections. Have developed a rash on arms & face. Have tried tapering prednisone dosage but pain levels come back up.

    Currently on 20mg daily. Still have pain in the morning & at night. Am worried about prednisone side effects.
  • Treating copd and kidney disease (1 response)
    My biggest problem is trying to keep my blood pressure at 110 to 140 diastolic and controlling constipation.

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • In spite of not eating green foods or taking NSAIDS, my INR is either way low or way high (1.3-6.1) I cannot seem to get this stabalized and have had increasing clotting in my left leg as a result. Could it be the tramadol? If so, what else could I take for fairly severe pain from arthritis and fibromyalgia? Thanks.
