Hi all, was just wondering if you’d be willing to share your current regimen, tips and tricks you’ve learned and any supplements that you’ve tried? Here’s my experience:
Current regimen: Advair HFA 230/21 2 puffs twice/day, spiriva 5 daily, prednisone 15 daily, azithromycin MWF. Lansoprazole 15mg twice/day for GERD. Cetirizine, Flonase for allergies.
Supplements: vitamin D 2000 iu daily (pulmo said it couldn’t hurt while tapering off pred).
If having poor control on advair diskus, ask to try HFA. Sometimes HFA is easier for people to take and better at getting to distal airways (most of the dpi ended up on my tongue!)
if having nightmares on singulair, you can try taking in the AM.
Advair and spiriva have amazing manufacturer savings cards. Spiriva is 0/month and advair is 10/month using the savings card and my insurance.
