Spiriva Review

Spiriva Reviewed by Donna on .
Spiriva worked wonders for my breathing but, after about 4 months of increasing leg and bone PAIN, terrible MUSCLE CRAMPS I decided to check on the side effects of it. Well guess what all of these and more were considered side effects of the drug. Wish one of the Dr. I saw in the 4 months had figured it out and maybe I would have been spared the PAIN and money it cost me during the last few months. I also had CATARACT surgury during this time and was very surprised that that was a problem since I have regular eye dr. visits and had been to get new glasses within the last 1 1/2 years. I stopped using the drug 7 days ago and am already having less and less PAIN in my legs daily. I am afraid to try any of the newer drugs now for fear of same results.

Most drugs have a large list of nonsevere or mild adverse effects which do not rule out continued usage. These effects depend on individual sensitivity, and can include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, malaise, vomiting, headache, dermatitis, dry mouth, etc. Check commonly reported side effects . These can be considered a form of pseudo-allergic reaction, as not all users experience these effects; many users experience none at all.
