 4  Asthma It worked great as far as breathing, but it had a severe drying effect on my lips and mouth. I had blisters in my mouth and splits on my lips. It also looked like I have a SEVERE CASE of chapped/windburned lips. No amount of medicated chapstick or lips balm helped!! I have to choose between breathing and having so much pain i can hardly eat or drink!? Really unfair! F 47 1 months

 1  COPD First the powder made my mouth numb... I took it once and felt like I was having a difficult time breathing so I didn't take it again. Ever since my chest has been tight and I'm having panic attacks. I was just diagnosed with COPD and never had symptoms or problems breathing until taking this. F 39 2 days

 1  spiriva dropped by insurance I have been on spiriva for years and it works well for me. Blue cross/blue shield stopped paying for it so I was given Incruse. I have been so sick ever since. Non-stop coughing, sneezing, very tight lungs, hard to get air out, stuffy nose, not sleeping because of the coughing. It all started less than a week after starting Incruse. F 48 1 days

 1  copd Does not help. The delivery system is not good. The powder goes in my mouth not down into my lungs. Has not helped my breathing. I was using Spiriva until Medicare cut if off and it worked well. Incruse ellipta is a. very Poor substitute. F 66 2 weeks

 1  COPD Breathing is worse on Incruse Ellipta. Shortness of breath, tightness in chest, thick mucous. Spiriva wasn't working, so I switched to Incruse. It's just as worthless as Spiriva. I'll just use my Proair (Albuterol) 2x per day. F 67 2 weeks

INCRUSE ELLIPTA  (UMECLIDINIUM BROMIDE):  Umeclidinium is used to control and prevent symptoms (such as wheezing, shortness of breath) caused by ongoing lung disease (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease-COPD, which includes bronchitis and emphysema). It works by relaxing the muscles around the airways so that they open up and you can breathe more easily. Umeclidinium belongs to a class of drugs known as anticholinergics. Controlling symptoms of breathing problems can decrease time lost from work or school. This medication must be used regularly to be effective. It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve sudden shortness of breath. If wheezing or sudden shortness of breath 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)
