Tudorza tasted Bad and Didn't Work - Going back to Spiriva
| Craven63
My doctor changed me to Tudorza and I have had horrible experiences with the inhaler - it would change colors when I inhaled then when it did - the taste was unbearable especially twice a day. I am changing back at my next appointment.

When using any inhalers with powder, Advair Diskette, Spiriva Handihaler, and Tudorza Pressair....ALWAYS rinse your mouth and throat with water, do not swallow the medicine. Failure to rinse with result probably result in irritation in your mouth and throat.

I have Started on Spiriva, find cost is high. Searched and found Tudorza and in checking it matches very close to Spiriva. Any information on both units would be great.

I agree, I too will be switching back to Spiriva for the same reason. It's one thing to inhale but am sure some of this has to be injested due to what's left in my mouth.
