How can I minimize the side effects of Daliresp?

There are several ways you can minimize the side effects of Daliresp (roflumilast), all of which require communicating with your doctor. Keep all your appointments, so your doctor can monitor your response to Daliresp, a drug prescribed for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). 

Take Daliresp exactly as directed and at about the same time each day. Do not take more or less than the amount your doctor prescribed, and do not stop taking the medication without talking to your doctor first.

Before taking Daliresp and during your treatment, tell your doctor about:
  • medical conditions you have, especially liver problems.
  • mood problems you have had in the past or currently experience, such as anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts or behaviors.
  • all medications you take, including prescription and nonprescription drugs, herbal remedies, and supplements.
  • any new medication you plan to start taking, including prescription or nonprescription drugs, herbal remedies or supplements.
  • any symptoms that bother you or do not go away.
Also tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breast-feeding or if you plan to become pregnant soon.
