    I take spervia inhaler twice a day, plus synthroid
    sparevia for the lungs, sythroid for the throat, and albuterol in a nebulizer, for the lungs, plus a mask at night to help stay asleep. I dont know which keeps me shaking more, or even if I have to have sperevia, with all else. I was given isorbide that I stopped myself because it made me act like a mad women. I need to know if just taking isorbide
    would let me eliminate the rest. I was diagnosed with copd,and even though I have a perfect heart, the vessles are too narrow, which makes my breathing worse. Any real comments on what to do to rid medicines either all together or take just one would be a GOD send. Sincerely, Lucy

  • Do either spiriva or symbicort cause diahria, urinary problems or loss of calcium in bones or teeth?

    If so, how to prevent reaction.
    If so, is it worth the trade off for an 84 year old to use these drugs?
