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 and on whether or not your ever getting off of Oxygen is a possibility.

Yes, I have discussed it with my doctor and as a result, we are monitoring my weight closely. So far, the good is outweighing the bad. It isn't too bad to be able to eat all that food and still maintain a constant weight. Although, I am trying to gain. Not good to eat alot of carbs though because they take more 02 to process, I guess. Guess we will just have to wait and see. Wish the insurance would pay for this drug. Very expensive!!
Thanks,

Hi Frank:
I have been on the Dalirest now for almost 3 months. I still have insomnia - so I take a melatonin each night to help out with that. I take 2 or 3 "naps" during the day also. I started breathing better the first week. Still have alot of the anxiety however. I try to stay calm because when I get anxious, it affects my breathing.

Hi Frank:
You may want to try the Melatonin 5 mg. That is natural and quite good. There is also a new sleep aid out that has 3 natural ingredients in it that is also suppose to be good. I wanted to do the stem cell, but I don't think insurance will pay and I cannot afford the $30k which is what I was told it cost. Just hang in there, my Pulmonoligist says there are alot of new things coming in the next 5 years for us.
Take Care, Darlene

Hello Darlene,the stem cell therapy in florida is 5000$,this doctor has found a way around the FDA ruling that using your OWN stem cells is a new drug.hahaha

I have taken Daliresp for 9 months (Daxas from Canada and then Daliresp when I could get it in the U.S.) It is the best medication I have ever used for COPD. It beats stem cell therapy by a mile. The side effects were difficult for me, but once they subsided (took about a month of feeling like I had the flu), they went away and I have had no problems since. A lot of people give up because of the side effects, but they do go away. I have lost some weight which I needed to do and it hasn't returned. I have heard that you can work your way up to a daily dose by taking it every 3 or 4 days to get used to it. I dove right in though and started with 1 500mg tablet a day. I highly recommend Daliresp.

It took me about a month to get my system used to this drug. I had alot of the same issues you are having, plus anxiety and insomnia and I was even getting on my own nerves. Once the mucus is gone, you will begin to breathe alot better. I have reduced my 02 needs from 3 1/2 liters to 2 1/2. I am extremely excited about that. This is my fourth month. Oh, I have also reduced my need for alot of the other drugs I was taking. I am down to just Daliresp and AdVair now. This is a powerful drug and is the best thing I have had so far. We just need to hang in there. Good Luck.

Hi Frank:
I am thrilled for you. Are you on any oxygen at all now? I am still taking Daliresp. I have not been sick since started taking it, but still on oxygen some. Guess it doesn't help that. My doc still can't do the stem cell because of the FDA. Don't know how I would ever get to Florida. Keep me posted, I am very happy for you!

I didn't have insomnia Frank. I think it was Darlene that said she did. My son and his family just had a month of them all feeling sick and having colds and respiratory problems. I had been around them before they showed symptoms and the grand kids had been at my house. I used to catch everything. I am happy to report, I had no problems staying healthy throughout this time period and I believe Daliresp is the reason why.

Hi Lynn:
I think Daliresp is very good also. I have not been in the hospital or sick for that matter since April. Last year I was hospitalized 7 times. I does make me very anxious. I even get on my own nerves. LOL...It is worth all the side issues. Just wish it would improve my lung function. I have heard that it does, but that it takes some time. I am interested in the stem cell, but want to wait until it is done by US docs. I am afraid to go to Mexico or somewhere like that. I have a home in Mexico and believe me, our docs are light years ahead of them. I was in a hospital in Ajijic, MX for one day and they really don't do much for you. Sweet people, but not very skilled.
