After being diagnosed with and suffering from chronic asthma since 1999, I was then diagnosed with COPD, three years ago. I wasn't aware of any serious side effect of the medication and took on board the list of side effects that come with the medication. I now suffer from horrendous side effects that make my asthma and COPD worse and I would not have accepted the meds if I had known. My gums are rotting, jawbone crumbling and toothache, sinuses completely shot to pieces, throat so sensitive that I can only use nothing but diluted mouthwash, ears pain, congested, high pitched noise, and dizzy, cannot breath [besides the asthma and COPD] head pain and cavities in and around the nose and throat in. All to deal with 24/7 and I have to argue with a doctor that doesn't appear to know anything about COPD and the side effects of the drugs prescribed. Does anyone else have similar problems?
