 Mainly for my reference - as this isn't a problem that will affect all users of the drug - never use Tiotropine - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiotropium_bromide

It's not a medication that will help my asthma as it causes exactly the same throat problems as inhaled steroids.  It's about a month since I took two doses of tiotropine and my voice is still very poor (almost non-existent today) and my throat is inflamed (though to be fair that might be an infection as I have been ill recently)

Ouch, poor you!

The area we are in is one of the asthma hot spots of Australia, I know a couple of people (kids,m actually) who have nearly died from it {shiver}
