Hi and I have watched in past but have just had serious ADR to Spiriva (for chronic bronchitis & ??tracheomalacia). I’ve had tetany contractures of hands and feet, cramps up the fronts of my shins and calf muscles, arm pain +++ arrhythmias +++ and some other bizzare stuff that I now discover 0.01% of pepople taking have reported such things, but so unusual it’s not mentioned in the literature. A quick search and low and behold… there is lots of discussion on severe leg cramps and front of leg pains/bone pain etc. I had warned my husband that he might need to call an ambulance. Paradoxically it had made my chest worse after a couple of days so I’m on lots of prednisolone and I’m guessing you all know what that’s like.
So… yes, I defiantly will be reading when I feel able to take on board whats staring me in the face!
Just curious, this spiriva reaction would suggest that I’m hypersensitive to anticholinergic medications… could this be why I have such dreadful trouble with anesthetics??? Any one else suspect the have ADRs to things like atropine? Bee
