    Started Anoro after being diagnosed with COPD, One week later had a lung node biopsy. One week after that I developed pneumonia, chest pains, chest pressure.

Due to have surgery in a week to remove lung nodu ... Show Full Comment

    My Dr. Prescribed Anora with a coupon. Unfortunately because Iâ??m on Medicare the company refused my coupon. $342.00 out of pocket to fill this medication. The Anora provided relieve with the first dose and I can breath again. Obviously Iâ??m not happy with the price. I have to decide if I can afford this medication or if I want to eat. Sad I worked all my life and I donâ??t qualif ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    My pulmonologist recommended this because other inhalers were ineffective. At first it seemed great, then my coughing became much worse, as did my muscular discomfort. Since discontinuing it, I still rely on my rescue inhaler when having a coughing fit, but at least that helps to clear the mucus from from my respiratory tract. Muscle aches have subsided.

    Comment:
    My pulmonary doctor switched me to Anoro from Symbicort for my COPD as Symbicort was not very effective. Felt good improvement in ability to breathe. Was using nebulizer albuterol 3 to 4 treatments a day. With Anoro albuterol treatments went down to 1 or 2 treatments every other day. Unfortunately one of the rare side effects is allergic reaction (I assume the hives is just that.) From 2nd day of ... Show Full Comment
