daliresp side effects

I have only been on daliresp for 3 days, but I'm worried about the side effects. I'm a little anxious and depressed, wheezy, headache and back ache, but mostly I'm concerned about the insomnia. Does anyone have experience in how long these side effects last? Also, I finished a round of predisone about 2 weeks ago so the lack of sleeping may still be the predisone. ## The side effects of most medications usually peak at around 4 to 6 weeks of use, when they reach their maximum effectiveness in the body and they should taper off in severity, after that. And they can take several weeks to wear off, so yes, it could be due to this medication or from lingering effects of the Prednisone you took, it is hard to say. If it gets worse or doesn't start to improve, then please make...

I'm a 58 yr old male, suffering from COPD, living in Calcutta in India. My city is highly polluted. I have been suffering from Asthma for 25 yrs. It is in the family. I have a nebuliser at home, as advised by my doctor. I use inhalers. Once in 45 days, the suffering worsened and then i was put on Predmet 16 (tapering off way). My regular exercise is a 45 min walk in a park. I am non smoker, but do have alcohol. Will the use of Predmet every 45 days (ave) put me in a high risk zone? ## Hello, Sambuddha! How are you doing? Well, you shouldn't take it, unless your doctor instructs you to do so. But, sometimes with these breathing issues, it is needed rather frequently. My mother-in-law has a standing order for Prednisone, due to her asthma and how often it acts up. The U.S. FDA lis...

Steroids for Emphysema

I'd like to ask a question. I've had emphysema for about 15yrs and it's been particularly bad the last 5yrs. I can *feel* it get worse every year. It also takes longer and longer to go away to a level to where I can walk around my home, get dressed, or stand-up to cook! Most of the time getting to the bathroom is exhausting. Recently, my GP gave a course of steroid pills and said I could take them for 3-5days but no longer; "cos they're really bad for you". I asked in what way & she said my bones. This makes no sense to me cos I've had osteo-arthritis since I was 20yrs old; and both knees are bone-on-bone - no cartilidge left. So, since that already exists, what else is wrong with them? I got to tell you, after 2 days I felt as if my illness reversed by 4...

Too scared too take them. ## Hello, Edward! How are you? Many medications have multiple uses, so these ones are often prescribed to help with heart function, so your heart works more efficiently. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness,...
