Hello! I have been on an albuterol inhaler for asthma as well as alvesco. I was recently diagnosed COPD as well. My pulmonologist prescribed me Spiriva. It worked great - but I had migraine strength headaches from it, so discontinued after 2.5 weeks. Then I tried Wilexa - it also worked great, BUT I could not get to sleep and had terrible muscle cramps. Is there anything else similar that people have tried? Note: I discontinued alvesco when I began the other meds.
I am taking a break at the moment from new meds to let my body heal, but will meet again with my doctor in 6 weeks.
