I take Spirivia, it is a great medication for me and has helped in my battle to overcome COPD. I found it on the internet when it first came to the United States. When, I went on an office visit to see my doctor, I asked him if it would be a good drug for me to try. He told me he would look into it for me. I also take Symbicort and Singular. I was able to get off the Prednisone a year ago but when I needed the drug it helped save my life.
As a disclaimer all drug manufactures state that COPD is a progressive disease that does not get better. They want you to know that they are not a cure. They may not be a cure but they can help with the relief of symptoms. With the relief of your symptoms you can to do the work you need to do to improve your health. You can improve your health with diet and exercise. You cannot wait till you feel like exercising, you have to get up and do what Nike says “Just do it” if you are going to overcome COPD.
