Can someone please help! My Mother is 91 in sept. Pulmonary Dr. said she has moderate COPD. Has given her an discus called BREO, and another one is ADVAIR 250/50... Then a rescure inhailer called Xopenex HFA.. Since Mom hasen't been in a hospital since she had me 63 yrs ago, she is doing better than I am! And I am glad too! But I am so confused when I read different side effects on all of the stuff, I fell it is time to turn to you all, who may have suggestions, or experiences with some of it... My Dr. just gave me Spiriva and I am scared to use it after I read all that stuff~ I know I sound like a whimp, but when it comes to my wonderful Mother, whom medicine is a new experience it is scarry. She has only had Hypertenton since 1980, and takes a tenormen tab. once in the am, and a small tab of hydralizene in the pm.. The latest thing happening is she has night sweats and is just soaked in the am, as well as her pillow~ No one seems to know what is wrong, and has had labs, come back okay 3 weeks ago, but last 2 weeks, she is sweating like crazy. Thanks to anyone who has any thoughts or ideas or experiences on this mess... Not crazy, just worried about me mum!!!! Thanks ,Candice
