I have been put on Revlar Ellipta three months ago and have been doing well withbit. Last week I got a cold and felt miserable. Went to my gp and ge said my chest wasn't too bad abd he gave me 30mg predisone to take for5 days and antibiotics. I didnt feel I was too bad so I didnt take the antibiitics straight away. However I felt really bad Sunday and started taking the antibiotics but what is happening is I have a dry cough now and my chest feels full of mucus which I cant get rid off. Its most uncomfortable and feels scratchy when I breath.
My worry is could the Revlar Ellipta be making my chedt infection wirse as I have read that it can guve you respitory tract infections.
what would you advise me to do? Finish the course of antibiotics. i have only one day to go on the steroids and I feel they are doing nothing for me.
I am 66 years old and have had asthma fir 61 years.
