Hi, I'm a 67 year-old male, have COPD & bronchiectasis and have been on Seretide and Tiotropium for about 10 years. I recently had my annual COPD review and the nurse-practitioner changed my medication to a single inhaler "Anoro Ellipta" umeclidinium/vilanterol.
I'm a bit concerned about possible side-effects, especially urinary tract infection as I also have an enlarged prostate (BPH). I saw my GP and discussed the possibilities of infection and he couldn't offer any advice - "it's your body, it's your choice whether or not you want the latest recommended medication".
Has anyone else tried this sort of inhaler? If so, were there any problems?
