Question: My sister has been diagnosed with COPD, Asthma, and was prescribed Symbicort 2 puffs 2 times a day, Proventil 2 puffs every 4 hours, and Asmanex Twisthaler 1 puff 2 times a day. There is one other inhaler Albuterol. My question is are all these inhaler safe together. Just looks like a lot to me. Just concerned and hope you can put my mind at ease.
I would like thank you all for your input to my concerns and I hope that you all find some peace in your quest for the appropriate medication. The information that you gave will not go unnoticed. Thank You!View Thread
I would like to thank you for taking the time to give me your input on this I was often wondering was anyone else taking more than one medication. I have been taking to her and she says she feel better with them. I guess that was my love for her asking. Thanks Again.View Thread
