Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • Believe my problem is with Formoterol. Symptoms (breathlessness and being winded with minimal exertion) first noted three years ago after taking Foradil aerolizer (formoterol) and asmanex twisthaler for one to two years. Health, stamina gradually dimished to shortness of breath with minimal exertion. One - two years ago prescription changed to symbicort. health improved dramatically for approximately two months. Began walking one to two miles a day. Now back to being winded with minimal exertion. Health seems better until I take my symbicort. Spiriva seems to counter act breathlessness at morning when I take with symbicort. At evening with no Spiriva, breathlessness prevails. using Spiriva twice daily works but doctor says no.
