 5  Shortness of breath I have not experienced side effect. I was suffering from shortness of breath frequently during the day. Anytime I was moving fast, walking stairs, or walk fast I would get shortness of breath. I was using other medicine to take when a got those symptoms but I didn't feel it was helping. Soon as I started to take this medicina Breo Ellipta I saw a big improvement. I could walk fast, do stairs. Now, I have not taking. I get the synthom only sometimes not too often. I had used the sample from my doctor. I went to buy is over $300.00 I didn't buy, I wanted to see if I am not taking it would not return the shortness of breath. Now is about a week and still I am not that bad. I get now much lighter the shortness of breath and not too often. I am waiting if can deal without the medicine maybe I won't take anymore. If It return and i feel the discomfort, I would buy. But I was very surprised after 1 1/2 year of suffering I am feeling much better. F 73 40 days

 1  Asthma Side effects were few.Worked at first. I dont know if its not working because it all sticks to the back of my throat or as per usual these drugs just stop working for me. Good product. Shitty delivery system..It should come in a puffer or nebulizer form.Im paying far too much just to have this crap stick to my throat and I use it exactly as described.. M 2 months
 3  Silent wheeze, small bronchial tube Although the medicine helped significantly with breathing at first, it caused a bad cough and I developed mucus problems I hadn't previously had. I also developed horrible pains in my knees that the Dr.s can't figure out with no prior history of problems, directly corresponding to the start of this med. F 43 1 months
 2  Asthma It gives me a sore throat when I use it. It feels a bit like I'm coming down with strep. When I stop the med, the throat pain goes away. Too bad, it seems to work but the side effects are becomins increasingly intolerable. I seem very intolerant of asthma medictions in general. F 45 60 days

 5  Copd Runny nose but not sure if it is from Breo I can finally breath! I have been taking adair for years and using my rescue inhaler at least 3 x a day. I could hardly walk any distance because I would be out of breath after a short time . After taking Breo I can actually walk and even run without being short of breath. No more wheezing also. I love this medicine , hardly ever use my rescue inhaler any longer. F 68 60 days

 3  COPD Emphysema Constant raspy cough with some mucus that did not exist before starting this medicine. While it does help significantly with the shortness of breath, I may have to discontinue if the cough continues or worsens. Feels almost like bronchitis. I am hoping that this is only temporary as my lungs get used to this medicine. M 60 2 months

 4  COPD Emphysema None really, except for a minor sore throat at times and occasional minor dry cough It does seem to be helping and I am less short of breath. M 63 2 months

BREO ELLIPTA  (FLUTICASONE FUROATE; VILANTEROL TRIFENATATE):  This medication is used to prevent and decrease symptoms (wheezing and trouble breathing) caused by asthma and ongoing lung disease (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease-COPD, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema). This inhaler contains 2 medications: fluticasone and vilanterol. Fluticasone belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works by reducing the swelling of the airways in the lungs to make breathing easier. Vilanterol belongs to a class of drugs known as long-acting beta agonists. It works by opening airways in the lungs to make breathing easier. When used alone, long-acting beta agonists (like vilanterol) may rarely increase the risk of serious (sometimes fatal) asthma-related breathing problems. However, combination inhaled corticosteroid and long-acting beta agonists, such as this product, do not increase the risk of serious asthma-related breathing problems. For asthma treatment, this product should be used when breathing problems are not well controlled with one asthma-control medication (such as inhaled corticosteroid) or if your symptoms need combination treatment. Before using this medication, it is important to learn how to use it properly. This medication must be used regularly to be effective. It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve sudden asthma attacks. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler (such as albuterol, also called salbutamol in some countries) as prescribed.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
