There are many people who die from respiratory distress from taking these medications. Such as Celexa, Lexapro, Prozac, or Xanax, Klonopin, Valium., etc. They do suppress our breathing guys!! My husband and I ran across this while researching COPD. I fully realize the benefit one might have from them, but beware that they also cause a person to struggle with breathing. So do some pain meds.
My point is: We should ALL ask our Drs. about the affect that these meds have on COPD.
