Has anyone heard of this inhaler? My doc here in Texas just gave it to me to try.

It's a LAMA/LABA combination; they've been around for three or four years. Stiolto was the first that came out about five years ago, by Boehringer Ingleheim and the others followed suit a year or two later. It's popular because it is a combination and has no ICS. I've tried them and I still respond badly to the LAMA and it's clear that I need the ICS.

Nice to hear from you, Penny. Are you staying in Texas now?

I tried it 2 yrs. ago aqd couldn't tell it did a thing. He gave me another one to try also, don't remember the name but it's the one you twist before you inhale it. Neither of these were covered by my Ins. so I explained to the Dr. that no way was I going to pay 300-800 a month for these. They set me up with Albuterol and a Nebulizer and haven't offered any trial drugs since. I just take my Generic Symbicort from ADC. I hope it works for you!

I just started it so the results aren't in yet. My main problem with MEDS is that I forget to take them sometimes!! And,unfortunately, I suffer from it later.

Yes,Jean, still in Texas but have GOT to get to SD too renew our driver's licenses. After that, who knows? We'll be running towards winter so I we hope to be somewhere near the Gulf coast.

Bevespi -- after a month's use, noticed no benefits. But then I had same experience with Spiriva, Symbicort, Tudorza, Stiolto, Breo, Anoro, Incruse. Only nebulized albuterol gives me short term relief. Maybe it's just me, but I suspect the bronchodilator biz mainly benefits the stockholders. Overpricing is a sin/crime.

All the others except albuterol are maintenance meds and not intended to have a kick you can feel when you take them. Have you tried going without one of them for two or three weeks? If you really think they're not doing any good, decide with your doc which one you're going to do without and give it a good two to three weeks. If you see no difference in that period of time, you're probably right; it isn't doing anything for you. If your breathing goes south, then you know it's doing something and you should probably continue to take it. Just do it one at a time so you know which ones work and which don't.

My Doc offered it because he would like to see me get off the steroid in symbicort. However, I'm a firm believer in "if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it". However, I will finish it off and see how I'm doing then.7

I can't do LAMAs, they make my breathing worse. I've tried just serevent twice in an effort to get off the steroid, but that really makes things worse. So I'm with Advair, apparently to the end of days.

So, Penny, after a month of trying Bevespi, what's your conclusion about its benefit for you?
