A few weeks ago my Dr. put me on Symbacort and I noticed a difference right away. This week another doctor added Spiriva to the list, once a day. I took it for the first time today and felt very shaky right after taking it but then as the day went on, I just felt very tired. I ended up taking 2 different naps just today. I see it listed as a random side effect but was wondering if anyone else had ...

For the nearly 26 m...
