Just like to say a big thank you to all who made the effort to reply to my very anxious post some while ago! I have still not taken Genuair, but have appointment with copd nurse Friday 29th to discuss! I am very much aware that all inhalers have side effects. However I have an irregular heartbeat and get palpitations so you can understand why I am concerned about anything that might aggravate this and the thought that I may have 12 hrs of palpitations really scares me! A short acting bronchodilator might be easier to cope with!
One more thing! I am ashamed to say that I still smoke, not much but have not been able to kick the habit! I know all my fellow copd sufferers on here have fought the battle and won, how did you do it? I have bought an Epen, tried it but it makes me cough! I just know can't do cold turkey and have tried the nhs stuff up to a point, just haven't got the willpower! Having said all that, I know I have to get a grip or it will be bad news for me! So all you wonderful ex-smokers share your secret with me!
