For some time my COPD had been getting much worse. I had sudden episodes where I was totally helpless and was gasping desperately for a breath of air. This could happen up to 5 or 6 times a day. Eventually, after an emergency call for an ambulance, I was admitted to hospital and spent a week there during which time they looked at the medicines I was being treated with.
Previously, I was on Aclidinium and Fostair twice a day, and using a Salbutamol nebuliser 4 times a day. This was changed and I now use the Aclidinium twice, a new inhaler called Relvar once in the morning, and a Phyllocontin pill twice a day. The difference has been amazing. The nebuliser is only needed once or twice a day and I can now go for walks, which I was too scared to do before. How has everybody else found their medicines, and has a change made a difference to how you live?
