Seretide and Spiriva

My father-in-law passed away on Wednesday.

He had COPD (he didn't die of that, he died of a broken heart after losing his wife 4 months ago) and he was on various medications.

In his kitchen which we were clearing out today I found two things which someone might benefit from. If you are prescribed this by your doctor and taking them, I would be happy to post them to you. Just send me your details by PM. I am not asking for any payment, then they don't weigh much so postage won't be expensive.

Sorry to hear that you have my thoughts, but pls return any meds to a chemist/surgery, its not advisable to offer or take someone else's medications even if you have been prescribed them. Again sorry about your dad-in-law.


Sorry to hear of you recent loss, best to return the drugs to the chemist even though they will just bin them. you are in my thoughts as you go through the coming sad time


My sincere condolences for the loss of your Father-in-law, so sad to think he may have stopped taking his meds when his wife died, I think they are at peace together,love huff x


Condolences, it must be difficult for you & you family at this sad time. Please return the medication to the chemist for disposal, as others have said it is not advisable to pass on medication to others even if it is prescribed for them.

Thank you all for your kind responses. Yes, it is a really sad and very difficult time, but we are at least comforted by the fact that he died in his sleep and his now with his beloved wife.

I see what you mean about the medicines. I will take them to the chemist's.
