Hi, I'm 74 & have mild, well controlled asthma since 7. I have been on a preventer inhaler since my 20's. In 2015 I developed a chronic cough and my breathing problem became more of a concern. (no asthma attack but often breathless, & wheezy). My Dr said I now have COPD & added Spiolto Respimat inhaler. I thought it made me worse so stopped it, he says it's the best. I had to see another Dr. one day when mine wasn't available & he said asthmatics can't get COPD. Articles on internet say asthmatics should not take Spiolto Respimat inhaler. Some articles say an asthmatic cannot have COPD, others say they can. What is the truth?
