Daliresp Overview

Roflumilast (trade names Daxas, Daliresp) is a drug that acts as a selective, long-acting inhibitor of the enzyme phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE-4).

Daliresp Experience
105 Replies RSS
I have been on Daliresp for one month. I have noticed significant improvement in my lungs. By that I mean the mucus is gone, wheezing is gone. My lungs seem to be getting clear and do not feel as heavy as they did before I started taking it. I have had my bouts of depression, I am never hungry, which is a problem because I am underweight as it is. Just wondering if anyone else has had success with this drug. I was hoping to get off oxygen at some point. Don't know if I can achieve that or not. ## I don't have a lot of information on this medication, since it is very new to the U.S. market and we haven't had a lot of posts about it, either, for the same reason. Have you tried discussing this with your doctor? They may have some ideas on how to safely increase your appetite an...

I was worried about the side effects but I took for 2 weeks and then I got flu like symptoms, a sinus like headache, and stomach pain. The Dr said I did not have a fever and saw no reason to prescribe an antibiotic. Sadly I also did not see any improvement in anything like my Shortness of Breath so I decided to stop. My question is: Has anyone had a headache from this drug and if so did it move from one side of the your head to the other. Mine seemed to be a sinus type headache and was to be over my left eye first and now over my right. I do not have any current sinus issues. Anxious to hear anyone's experience with the headaches. ## Hello, Denny! How are you? Headaches are a known side effect of this medication, along with cough, diarrhea and joint pain. What other medications do y...

I have been on daliresp for about a year. Now i have bad tremors. was having headaches. terrible low back pain and joint pain. I stopped taking about 5 days ago-tremors have greatly lessened. weill see about other symptoms soon I hope. also i didn't notice any change in breathing. I did notice an increase in mucous-that was continuous. even bringing up mucous didnt change or improve my breathing. Now i do not feel like i am drowning in mucous-feel much better. ## Hello, Blazer! How are you? Have things improved more, yet? I haven't taken this medication, but I have taken others that caused me to experience tremors and I hated it, so I understand, couple them with other side effects and its ridiculous. The FDA does list these issues as being possible side effects of this medicati...

I was laid off from work be cause i could not keep up with my production in data in the office i work. My illness would not let me continue to work and this has caused me to have a hard time getting the medicine i need without insurance. ## You might try contacting the company that manufactures it. Sometimes pharmaceutical companies will help with patients who cannot afford medications for one reason or another. Daliresp is made by Nycomed GmbH for Forest Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ## I see that is an older post, but in case the OP is still looking, or if anyone is looking in the future, there is a program for Daliresp that is offered by the manufacturer for low income patients that don't have prescription insurance. To contact the manufactured for application information you can call 80...

Daliresp 500 back pain
3 Replies RSS
I started taking Daliresp 1-14-16 my breathing is much better but i've had 3 different spells of my lower back hurting so bad that on a scale of 1 to10 it would be 10 my back never hurt me before so i think im going to have to quit taking it because i can't stand my back hurting like this. ## Hello, Georgene! How are you? I'm sorry about the pain you've experienced. That can be a side effect of this medication, as reported by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, dry throat and sneezing. However, most side effects are transient and go away after a month or so, once your body gets used to the medication. If this hasn't improved, it would be best to consult your doctor as it may not be the right medication for you. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

I have read so many good things about Daliresp. My doctor gave me a two week supply to see if I could tolerate the side effects if I had them. I have had some stomach issues and sleeplessness for the 10 days i have taken them. I am determined to make this work! I should have waited to try this new drug. I am booked for a cruise in 10 days. Should I quit taking this and try again when I get back or would I have more issues by stopping now? Or is the worst over? I was also put on Oxygen Therapy two months ago. ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? What did you end up doing? If you've not had any serious problems, after using it for a month, things should likely be fine, but only your doctor can advise you on what you should do. The FDA lists its other typical side effects as possibly includin...

On the 4th week of Daliresp
5 Replies RSS
My husband is now on his 4th week of Daliresp. The side effects are still horrible but from what I have read here, they do finally go away and the breathing is much better with no flare ups. It seems like he has had almost every side effect there is from this. His breathing is getting a little better now. ## Yes, side effects normally reach their peak of intensity and then start to taper off at around 4 to 6 weeks, that's usually the time that a medication reaches its full level of effectiveness in someone's body. Learn more Daliresp details here. However, if they don't start to taper off, or if they get worse, then he should contact his doctor immediately. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for the information. ## I decided to try it for 6 weeks to see if ...
