Started Xeljanz in Jan this is first respiratory infection but is a bad one. I do have COPD so need to take care with lungs. Does starting and stopping Xeljanz decrease its ability to help RA by creating antibodies to the drug .
She is on Dulera as well as ipratropium Bromide and albuterol Sulfate inhalation solution and is having trouble breathing. Does anyone have any ideas on medications to help her? She in on Dulera twice a day and the nebuliser treatment 4 times a day
Wanted to try Advair, but of course THAT'S not covered. Anyone recommend one similar that closely works like the Advair inhaler? Something I can suggest to my doctor? I've tried Combivent, Trelegy, Symbicort and Ventolin. If I find nothing, then it's oral steroids daily indefinitely.
My mother has CHF and COPD and is rapidly declining. As of 4 months ago she was not oxygen dependent and active. She was hospitalized duxto SOB 2 months ago and its been downhill since then. Multiple hospitalizations and he is on way too many meds. She vomits every day and is too weak to lift her head. These are the medications she is on

My husband has been on Symbicort for years and it works perfectly for him. The only problem is: EVERY month, as soon as the red appears his breathing at night is terrible. He wakes up and has to use his rescue inhaler. This ONLY happens when the red appears. The rest of the time, he does not wake up. Has anyone else noticed this? We have called the company. They told us to go through our pharmacist. We are unable to get answers.
as soon as i started taking it my left chest and nipple started to get sore, then after a couple months my right started doing the same. no bumps or lumps just sore like i was on a surfboard without a shirt.
