Comment from: Helen, 65-74 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: April 06

I had headaches for the whole month I used it. The Doctor took me off it as she said it was probably the powder. I am on advair spray now and rarely get a headache.

Atrovent works decently well for me. My problem is that I have no insurance and the out-of-pocket cost of this 25-day supply is $164. With all my other medical expenses, that's a financial hit I can't handle in the long term. Is there no generic for this?

I have a difficult time keeping up with 16 puffs per day with the Atrovent HFA. Also I have read not to take over 12 puffs per day but my physician says 16. What does this mean?

Emerg doc had me take 10 shots of ventolin and 5 shots of this, had tingling/numb hands and face for 24 hrs after, chest pains, lots of coughing, sore throat. Seems to relieve the labored breathing though.

Comment from: Ringer, 65-74 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: January 23

Using for last 3 months for a dry cough. Apparently mucus is going down into the stomach causing the cough. Also given Rabeprazole (small yellow tablet-twice daily) This seems to be working. My concern is long term use and the possibility of worse side effects than the dry mouth and slight pain in the sinus area after using the spray. Any long time users out there?

I use two puffs twice a day for the last year. It reduces and mostly takes away the whizzing.

I was surprised when I was prescribed this inhaler for my bronchitis, but so far it has been quite helpful. My coughing has gone down and my breathing is much more relaxed. I have only been using it for a few days but it has already been effective.
