Just had meds change - any problems ?

Some of you will remember my last post this week where I was desperate to reduce my fierce coughing. Doc has changed me from Bevespi to Trimbow, put me on azithromycin for a week, Changed my statin from prevastatin to rosuvastatin and my ppi from omeprazole to Famotidine. Anyway at least he did something :) although he didn't call me in to the surgery so just on the phone, I know we are all different how we react to different meds but just wondered how folks get on with Trimbow and azithromycin . ? I hope you all have a lovely weekend and that you enjoying a bit of warmth in the sunshine xxxx😘

Hi I have azithromycin which is great for keeping infection at bay but I was taking it in the morning which affected my stomach so someone on here recommended that I try taking it at night and it helps a lot better. As for trimbow I have not used it only seretide

Hi Pegbi Yes I'm hoping they work, I also managed a referral to a chest consultant but that could be months but eh ho its progress - thankyoux

just to say that I have also used azithromycin for about five years without any trouble. Trimbow has been wonderful for me, a huge difference to my previous meds of aclidium bromide and Fostair.

Been on azithromycin for about 12 years no issues. Have tried so many inhalers over the years I cant remember most of them, so I dont if I have had trimbow.

Hi I think we are all different and some meds are good for some and not for others. Can you go back to seretide if you prefer that?
