For COPD, Maintenance “It was my first time to use combivent. I was able to sleep well because I am not coughing the whole night though I have a hard time breathing as if there is something heavy on my chest and i feel so tired. Thanks to this article I just found out I belong to the 2% who experience such side effects..”

For COPD, Maintenance “For those who prefer Combivent and can’t get it, be advised it is still available in Mexico over the counter by it’s brand name. So if you have a friend who go’s there, they can bring it back for you….Another option is to use Atrovent and Albuterol inhalers together as prescribed by your doctor as I do……As the U.S, drug companies charge a lot for Atrovent. BTW Regular Albuterol / Salbutamal Inhalers are less than $10. each when ordering UK Generics”

For COPD, Maintenance “I’m 1 month in on trying this respimat. It’s terrible. I see the specialist tomorrow, and I went back on my morning once a day spariva. I used the combivent inhaler for extremely bad attacks where I might only use it 3-4 times in a month and it was a life saver for me. It WAS my safety net..I hope they go back to the combivent inhaler.”

For COPD, Maintenance “Switched from Symbicort. Combivent works much better than Symbicort or Albuterol for me. My wheezing is allergy induced. Ipratropium addresses the allergic component. Seems wetter than other inhalers which helps delivery.”

For COPD, Maintenance “I have used it since 1998. It is the only product that works for me ….now they discontinued the product and use respirmat. The drug does not work for me at all. I sure wish combivent was back.”

For COPD, Maintenance “I’ve been on Combivent for years and then had an allergic reaction to it which put me in the ER. Had severe skin burning and itching all over. Now have to stop it. It did help my breathing so not happy about this allergic reaction happening to me.”
