Comment:
I have been taking Spiriva for 4 months now. It helps with the breathing however I average 2-4 empty capsules per month. Contacted the company and was told to hit the HandiHaler on the counter top to loosen the medication-does not work. Need to see Dr, to change this medication. Not even getting my moneys worth.

I have had 3 pills the one month that seem to be empty. Not happy with the cost when you get empty pills and no response from the company.

My only concern with this drup is the dizziness. I have to remain still for at least 45 minutes. If I try to stand, I weave and lose my balance.
