From this study (1 week ago):
Have hives on stomach an back itch like crazy.
From this study (1 month 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.
From this study (2 months ago):
I was diagnosed with a Hyphema in my right eye. The eye had not been traumatized or injured in any way before this condition occurred. The Ophthalmologist informed me this condition is usually cause by Trauma or injury to the eye. I had no such trauma or injury and the ocular pressure in both eyes was elevated.The eye that had the Hyphema bleed was quite elevated (34) upon diagnosis. Upon treatment the eye is improving, however I have remained concerned about the possible cause. Since that time, I have only one prescribed medication (Spiriva)I had been taking for a year or so. I reviewed the information pamphlet for the Spiriva and it does state "stop taking Spiriva if you experience New or worsened increased pressure in the eyes" I have stopped taking Spiriva.
