Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Are you currently on anything for your COPD?
What are your symptoms currently? i.e. how severe is your shortness of breath?
Quite severe shortness of breath especially if walking - I cough easily. I take Symbicort 200 in the morning with Salamol morning and evening, together with medication for high blood pressure and thyroxine. Tramadol for fibromyalgia pain and amitriptyline to help me sleep.
I think that with your symptoms you should go to the A & E
The reason why I say that is because of your shortness of breath
You require to be treated as soon as possible and there is nothing over-the-counter that can help.
I have had that for years - jusr worse at the moment
You will most likely require nebulization.
Do you have a nebulizer at home?
