Lungs (Pulmonary) Overview

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a type of obstructive lung disease characterized by long-term respiratory symptoms and airflow limitation.[8] The main symptoms include shortness of breath and a cough which may or may not produce mucus.[4] COPD progressively worsens with everyday activities such as walking or dressing becoming difficult.[3] The two most common conditions of COPD are emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

COPD and swollen feet

Are COPD and asthma medications known for causing Edema or puffy feet? I've also had Astrazeneca vaccine 2 weeks ago. Weather is starting to warm up here in Australia. Thanks ## Many medications can cause edema as a side effect, but I can't be more specific, without knowing which medications you are using, since there are quite a few available. Can you please post back with more details? There are also cases where edema can be caused by some other health issue, such as high blood pressure. You can learn more about Edema here, from Medline Plus. Have you ever had blood pressure problems?

Oxymetazoline nasal drops could not sleep

Recently bought Oxymetazoline nasal spray. I have COPD emphysema. I spent the whole night coughing with no sleep. Has anyone heard of this happening? Thank you ## Yes, it has been known to cause that, and a product warning instructs you to consult your doctor if this occurs, and the nasal spray doesn't alleviate your symptoms. Other side effects of Oxymetazoline may include funny taste, runny nose, burning nose. Are you on any other medications? Did you try sleeping with your head slightly elevated?

Anoro Ellipta reactions

Has anyone had an itchy facial rash that got puffy and turned really red, and felt pretty hot? Anoro Ellipta is the only new prescription that I recently started on... That's why I'm thinking it could be the Anoro Ellipta... ## The FDA does list it as being known as causing itching and a rash as side effects. However, it would be best to have this checked out, in case you are allergic to it. Other side effects are listed as possibly including belching, dry mouth, constipation, headache, and vertigo. Has there been any change? What other medications are you taking? ## Has anyone gained weight after taking Anoro Ellipta? I have not yet started it yet, but am concerned that it will make me gain weight and I am already weighing 202 lbs. at 5'4. ## I have been taking Anoro for 3 ...

spiriva capsules empty

please when a person has been taking this(*Spiriva) medication for a period of time you know if you are getting meds or not. I have not taken a count and I can do so if necessary but it is approx. every 5th capsule that doesn't give out any powder....The above lady is correct the capsules are very brittle so it is possible that the capsules are cracking and the meds escapes. This is not very good , why would I pay for meds that I do not get. ## I have been taking Spiriva for about 9 months now. I encounter at least 3 empty capsules per month. On the first inhale if there is no rattling, I just discard the capsule and take a different one. I use the same process every day so I don't buy the company's statement that there is powder in the capsules and it is user failure. If th...

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....

daliresp side effects

I have only been on daliresp for 3 days, but I'm worried about the side effects. I'm a little anxious and depressed, wheezy, headache and back ache, but mostly I'm concerned about the insomnia. Does anyone have experience in how long these side effects last? Also, I finished a round of predisone about 2 weeks ago so the lack of sleeping may still be the predisone. ## The side effects of most medications usually peak at around 4 to 6 weeks of use, when they reach their maximum effectiveness in the body and they should taper off in severity, after that. And they can take several weeks to wear off, so yes, it could be due to this medication or from lingering effects of the Prednisone you took, it is hard to say. If it gets worse or doesn't start to improve, then please make...

what is the use of predmet tablet

I'm a 58 yr old male, suffering from COPD, living in Calcutta in India. My city is highly polluted. I have been suffering from Asthma for 25 yrs. It is in the family. I have a nebuliser at home, as advised by my doctor. I use inhalers. Once in 45 days, the suffering worsened and then i was put on Predmet 16 (tapering off way). My regular exercise is a 45 min walk in a park. I am non smoker, but do have alcohol. Will the use of Predmet every 45 days (ave) put me in a high risk zone? ## Hello, Sambuddha! How are you doing? Well, you shouldn't take it, unless your doctor instructs you to do so. But, sometimes with these breathing issues, it is needed rather frequently. My mother-in-law has a standing order for Prednisone, due to her asthma and how often it acts up. The U.S. FDA lis...
