Hi everyone as a newbie my question is with COPD, with which I was diagnosed 2 years ago. Does anyone take a maintenance dose of Prednisolone, I have 5 brothers and 3 sisters and seven of us have COPD and none of them smoked, only me who gave up 5 years ago after smoking for over 40 years. I found that when I had an attack I was taking a dose of 6 X 5mg tablets and antibiotics which worked for about a month and the another bout would happen again beginning another vicious circle. I was given some Anora Ellipta which i tried for a week but made matters worse. Thanks in reply.
