INCRUSE ELLIPTA: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For COPD, Maintenance “Got the Incruse Ellipta due to my insurance stopped covering Spiriva. Used it once, funny taste and felt like I was having an asthma episode which stayed with me all day. I had to meet my deductible so paid over $300 for this inhaler. Will not use it again, will call my pulmonary Dr. tomorrow and see if I can get the Spiriva back.”

For COPD, Maintenance “INCRUSE was prescribed as additional course of treatment, alternating schedule in conjunction with BREO use. Was difficult to tolerate after inhaling, often agitated breathing and caused shortness of breath instead. Discontinued use after less than one prescription dispenser.”

For COPD “I began using Incruse Ellipta after my Medicare Advantage plan discontinued coverage for Spiriva, which I had used successfully for a couple of years. The biggest problem I encountered was the horrid, bitter taste of the Incruse. At first I thought perhaps I had received an outdated inhaler, but my first refill had the same awful taste. I developed thrush and had to be treated for that. After six weeks on the Incruse Ellipta, I and my Immunologist applied for and were granted an exception for me to return to using Spiriva.”
