Anyone has experience with this two drugs? The advair seems to have more side effects.
My husband is having an increase in his asthma. He was always able to control with the occasional puff but since it became very hot and humid he has had to use it everyday, sometimes twice. That is why we started looking into this other drugs, but they seem to have so many side effects that are so scary.
Are these types of drugs that you go on for a while and then get off of them or you take them for life?
Thank you for any input.
Advair is a twice a day long acting bronchodilator and steroid, as you know. Spiriva is a once a day long acting bronchodilator that is different than the one in Advair, and works in a different way. I take both as I have cough variant asthma. And the drug in Spiriva has an affect on coughing. I've not had any noticeable side affects from either. I've take both every day for about a year (Advair for about 3 years) and was told if I got better (fewer attacks) that I could drop the Advair to once a day. That hasn't happened.
