Main adverse events of Roflumilast are weight loss, loss of appetite, insomnia, headache, diarrhea, vomiting, and nausea. Although the majority of these adverse reactions were mild or moderate. They occurred mainly at the beginning of therapy and mostly resolved with continued treatment around for two weeks according to experiences of clinicians. These adverse events occur more often in Roflumilast 500 μg than 250 μg, having negative impact on compliance of patients at the early stage of treatments.
Thus, investigators aim to compare the drop-out rates between the usual dosage (Roflumilast 500 μg once daily) and the dose escalation (Roflumilast 250 μg once daily for 4 weeks and then escalating dose of 500 μg once daily).

Experimental: Roflumilast escalation dosage
Roflumilast 250 μg qd (4 weeks) →500 μg qd
Drug: Roflumilast escalation dosage
This is a randomized, prospective, open label, comparative study to assess whether the administration of roflumilast by dose escalation varies the incidence of discontinuations due to adverse events when compared with the usual dosage in severe and very severe COPD patients.
Roflumilast 250 μg once daily for 4 weeks and then increased dose of Roflumilast 500 μg once daily for 12 weeks
