Steroids for Emphysema

I'd like to ask a question. I've had emphysema for about 15yrs and it's been particularly bad the last 5yrs. I can *feel* it get worse every year. It also takes longer and longer to go away to a level to where I can walk around my home, get dressed, or stand-up to cook! Most of the time getting to the bathroom is exhausting. Recently, my GP gave a course of steroid pills and said I could take them for 3-5days but no longer; "cos they're really bad for you". I asked in what way & she said my bones. This makes no sense to me cos I've had osteo-arthritis since I was 20yrs old; and both knees are bone-on-bone - no cartilidge left. So, since that already exists, what else is wrong with them? I got to tell you, after 2 days I felt as if my illness reversed by 4...

Possible gastroenteritis with Trelegy

I have been on Breo for quite some time but was given a trial of Trelegy. Used for 6 days but had thick mucus in throat during night and heavy deep cough, back on Breo for 4 days then completed Trelegy for 8 days. The following day had bowel pain and mucus (diarrhea) for 3-4 days then constant fecal diarrhea. Put on Cipro & Metronidazole then off Cipro and on Amoxicillin-clav.

Spiriva weight gain side effects

I've talked about this problem before concerning the side effects from Spiriva. The only side effect I've experienced was a sudden, and seemingly permanent weight gain. In spite of efforts to lose the weight I've had no success whatsoever. I've gained weight from other medications in the past only to lose it when the medication was discontinued. Not so with Spiriva. It has been almost three years since I've used the inhaler but yet the added weight persists. I should mention that all of the added weight has been on the midsection and nowhere else! To make matters worse has been a disended abdomen to go along with it. I contacted the drug company right after it happened and, naturally, they acted as if it was new to them! I'm not the only one this has happened to....
