I took Spiriva for 3+ months and had to quit because of severe constipation. Now I have 2.5 mos. worth of the Cipla version (Tiova) of this that I don't know what to do with. Anyone have any ideas about what I can do with these leftovers?

Same here - my doc said the combivent respimat has some of the same stuff in it that Spiriva does and to quit taking the combivent respimat and just use a pro air. Huge improvement but now I have like 6 unopened combivent that expire in June. Wish there was a med exchange lol. I know there are folks that can't afford it but we can't give it to them :( such a waste.

I understand exactly where you are all coming from but be careful not to mention any money or sales or even if you give it to someone who really can use it. Make sure you only make sure your transactions by email. Not on the open forum. I would hate to see anyone open their selfs up to a liability or in trouble with the law because of a act of kindness.

jcopd, I never got your email. You say you sent it through the Forum. Is there a particular place I should look for it on this site? Or would it have appeared in my inbox when I opened my gmail account this morning? Dave, the way email has worked in the past is that if someone emailed me, it came to my gmail account. Am I missing something?

I would suggest to those of you that have put your email address on the forum to go back and edit the email portion off of your reply, to avoid spammers and hackers. Better to be safe than sorry.

I removed it. If someone who can not email yet sends a message with the persons they want, and the message, along with email, I will forward it unless it violates policy.

This topic seems to have a reply issue. They seem to get lost.
