Side Effects-stop Daliresp

I have been taking Daliresp for a year now. I'm having terrible headaches, tremendous, bad back pain and more.. I'm going to try to get of this medications to see if this is whats causing all. How long will it take for Daliresp to be out of my system.. ## Not sure if you got my post I'm taking dalliresp and my hair is coming out and can't sleep very well was wondering if this is a problem with others ## Daliresp has been known to cause headaches, diarrhea, nausea, insomnia, back pain, and muscle spasms as side effects. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Are you still taking the Daliresp? Are you on any other medications?

spiriva capsules empty

please when a person has been taking this(*Spiriva) medication for a period of time you know if you are getting meds or not. I have not taken a count and I can do so if necessary but it is approx. every 5th capsule that doesn't give out any powder....The above lady is correct the capsules are very brittle so it is possible that the capsules are cracking and the meds escapes. This is not very good , why would I pay for meds that I do not get. ## I have been taking Spiriva for about 9 months now. I encounter at least 3 empty capsules per month. On the first inhale if there is no rattling, I just discard the capsule and take a different one. I use the same process every day so I don't buy the company's statement that there is powder in the capsules and it is user failure. If th...

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 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...

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...

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...
