Trelegy Ellipta drug interactions

Does anybody know what meds should not be taken with Trelegy Ellipta? I take Toprol-XL, Norvasc, Protonix, Xarelto, Proair inhaler, Ipratr Albuterol in Nebulizer, Flonase spray, Levothyroxine, and Vitamin D-2. ## Hello Beverly, I hope you are having a pleasant day. Using the UCLA health organization's drug interaction checker I did not find any reactions between the Trelegy ellipta and any of the other medications you listed. I have provided a link below to the drug interaction checker tool in case you would like to look up any of the other drugs/vitamins you listed. I have found this tool to be extremely useful as it shows you interactions with foods as well as other drugs which sometimes people may overlook.

Can COPD meds cause a positive urinalysis

I take Breo, Spiriva, Respimat, Ventolin, Albuterol, Ipratropium Bromide, Prednisone, Loradine, & Montelukast. Can any of these or a combination of them cause a positive urinalysis? ## I recently asked this question, Can these drugs cause a UA to be positive. I take Breo, Spiriva Respimat, Ventolin, Albuterol, Ipratropium, Prednisone, Montelukast. I will be in big trouble if I don't find out why I could test positive on a UA. I wasn't taking any other drugs, Legal or illegal so what's the deal. Someone out there can relate to this I know. Help the people need to know the truth ? ## I've posted this question before with no reply, I recently was pulled over by police, the officer said I seemed nervous, said my heart rate was high, Ask for UA, anyway It came back positi...

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...

swollen hands and feet

Hi, I have COPD and my bloodpressure is normal, but I get swollen hands and feet. I went too the dr. And they perscribe hypace 5ml and raidac 12,5 ml. Raidac to be taken once a day and hypace half in morning and half in evening. My question is if I don't have hypertension, why did they perscribe me with these tablets and won't it make my BP drop. The swelling is caused through the COPD and they say I am not getting enough oxzygen too my heart. Please help me too understand why I have too use these meds. 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,...

Possible gastroenteritis with Trelegy

I have been on Breo for quite some time but was given a trial of Trelegy. Used for 6 days but had thick mucus in throat during night and heavy deep cough, back on Breo for 4 days then completed Trelegy for 8 days. The following day had bowel pain and mucus (diarrhea) for 3-4 days then constant fecal diarrhea. Put on Cipro & Metronidazole then off Cipro and on Amoxicillin-clav. Extreme pain & diarrhea during night, went to ER. Given IV meds and sent home with Diphenoxylate/atropine. At that point diagnosed with diverticulitis but no explanation how it was caused (I have had it but ALWAYS could determine what set it off). Finished all meds with no relief so put on Cholestyramine. Been on it for 8 days now and finally getting relief from constant diarrhea. This entire experience ha...

Spiriva weight gain side effects

I've talked about this problem before concerning the side effects from Spiriva. The only side effect I've experienced was a sudden, and seemingly permanent weight gain. In spite of efforts to lose the weight I've had no success whatsoever. I've gained weight from other medications in the past only to lose it when the medication was discontinued. Not so with Spiriva. It has been almost three years since I've used the inhaler but yet the added weight persists. I should mention that all of the added weight has been on the midsection and nowhere else! To make matters worse has been a disended abdomen to go along with it. I contacted the drug company right after it happened and, naturally, they acted as if it was new to them! I'm not the only one this has happened to....

Daliresp Experience

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...

Anoro Ellipta reactions

Has anyone had an itchy facial rash that got puffy and turned really red, and felt pretty hot? Anoro Ellipta is the only new prescription that I recently started on... That's why I'm thinking it could be the Anoro Ellipta... ## The FDA does list it as being known as causing itching and a rash as side effects. However, it would be best to have this checked out, in case you are allergic to it. Other side effects are listed as possibly including belching, dry mouth, constipation, headache, and vertigo. Has there been any change? What other medications are you taking? ## Has anyone gained weight after taking Anoro Ellipta? I have not yet started it yet, but am concerned that it will make me gain weight and I am already weighing 202 lbs. at 5'4. ## I have been taking Anoro for 3 ...

Side effects of breo ellipta

I was given a sample of breo ellipta for bronchitis.. just bronchitis. I was on it for 2 days when I ended up in the hospital for severe heart palpitations, chest pain, dizziness, loss of taste.. I completely felt out of it. Elevated blood glucose and low potassium. I was told I was having a bad reaction to the steroid and it would take a few weeks. The heart palpitations and dizziness still come and go but are getting less intense. Panic attacks and depression are still rearing their ugly head. Has this happened to anyone? How long could this possibly take to go away? I have no previous health issues. 32 year old female in good health... So frustrated at this point. They gave me a holter monitor to wear for 2 weeks that I take off and mail back tomorrow. I'm afraid at this point it...

Spiriva Dud Capsules, weight gain, headaches

I have had one or two duds per box of Spiriva. That is when they do not rattle and the capsule breaks. I think it is due to drying out because when ripping the Bubble wrapped sets of pills apart they are so crappy that they are compromised when ripping apart. You can't see it and after they are exposed to air and dry out, they break wrong from being brittle and I don't know if they retain the medicine. I either skip it not knowing if I got a dose or I take two and run short. At $10.00 a pill there should be no failures. If they need such protection they should be in better wraps. I also have quick unexplained weight gain around my middle that is quite concerning. Quick headaches too. But this is also the first time I don't have constant pain in my chest and windlessness. But...

COPD causes, symptoms and treatment

What do the letters COPD stand for? How do u contract COPD? What are the symptoms of COPD? What kind's of treatments are available for COPD? What kinds of medication is used to treat COPD? ## Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, there is no one way to contract it, someone may develop it after many years of smoking, years of dealing with chronic asthma, exposure to dangerous products they've inhaled, as well as other means, according to NIH reports. Some of the symptoms may include problems breathing, wheezing, chest tightness, and an inability to exercise. The treatments depend on what works for the person experiencing COPD, they may need to use oral medications to improve their breathing, inhalers, or even oxygen if it becomes severe. Are there any other questions? ## I am as...

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...
