TALKING WITH YOUR DOCTOR

Having an open discussion with your doctor is the most important step in managing your COPD. Talk to him or her about the effort required to get the medicine out of your inhaler. While many commonly prescribed inhalers require that you inhale quickly and sharply, STIOLTO RESPIMAT delivers your medicine as a slow-moving mist that eases the effort to inhale. That’s inhaleability.

Find the section below that addresses your current COPD needs. Write down your answers (or questions) and bring them to the doctor's office.

COPD doctor discussion

First time talking to your doctor about COPD?

Talk about:

  • How long you've had symptoms
  • What symptoms you're having (coughing, wheezing, or shortness of breath), and how they're affecting your days and nights
  • Any history of breathing problems, including family history
  • Any medicines you're taking
  • Your smoking history, if any (how many years, how much, and how often). If you're a former smoker, include how long ago you quit
    - Also, STIOLTO has been proven to improve your breathing even if you've smoked one pack a day for over 10 years
COPD treatments

Already being treated for COPD?

Talk about:

  • What symptoms you're experiencing and how often
  • Your current maintenance and rescue medicines (bring them to your appointment with you)
  • All other medicines you're currently taking
  • How often you use your rescue inhaler
  • If you're still smoking, and what you've tried to help you quit

Other questions to ask your doctor:

  • How can inhaleability help me better manage my COPD?
  • Is my current treatment enough?
  • How much effort should I be using to get the medicine out of the inhaler?
  • Am I using my rescue inhaler too often?
  • What kind of lifestyle changes can I make to help me breathe better?
  • Would a maintenance treatment with inhaleability, such as STIOLTO, be right for me?
