I'm a bit concerned as my practice nurse has put me onto new meds,which I read up on.
I was taking RELVAR 92/22... Which was doing absolutely nothing for my breathing,I was struggling to just get from room to room...and my peak flow at my review was 164...
I told the nurse of my inability to get my breath,and she put me onto RELVAR 184/22.
Reading the patient info leaflet,it says that this medicine is not suitable for copd patients as there is no positive effect for them,only the increased chance of pneumonia.the RELVAR 92/22 is the one we should be given,which was doing me no good at all.
I went back for another review after being on it for 2 weeks.And I must say,I felt remarkably better regarding my breathing.
I felt like I could get my breath all the way down into my lungs.
I had another pf,and it had gone up to 200.😊
I was well happy.
Do I really need to be constantly worrying about the increased risk of pneumonia,when I can at last breath better?
Has anybody else had this med offered,while battling copd?
I would be grateful for any advice.
