COPD, ASTHMA and constant CHEST INFECTIONS/COLDS

hi, a family member suggested I take vitamin c and echinachae tablets to help build up my immune system etc as mine seems to be very low....can anyone tell me if they use/have tried these and wether they do help etc, im constantly taking clarithromycin and prednisolone and also ventolin/becotide and Spiriva inhalers, any info on vit c and echinacae would be very helpful

thank you

  • Hi yes I swear by echinacea in the winter I was takin it up to 3wks ago I ran out ,at the mo got a cold that's gone on my chest thati can't shift,doc 1st put me on amoxicillin for 2 wks ,useless ,today I called doc out and he's given me clarithomycin and steroids,hav felt really awfull,I'm now starting to cough a lot so I guess it's breaking it up ,il never run out echinacea. Again it's kept me going theses last few winters,I take 1000mg,along with fish oil omega3.dos said today that the cold weather has affected a lot of people with adthma
