I was tested in 2019 with mild COPD. Since then I’ve had two flare-ups that required antibiotics and a steroid. I use albuterol but not daily and only if I feel shortness of breath. I might use it 4-5 days a month. Last year my Dr prescribed Symbicort which my body absolutely cannot tolerate. I tried twice and within 5 days I had to stop taking it. I was just recently prescribed Trelegy and am on day 4, so far without any issues. That said, I have concerns about taking drugs that I don’t necessarily need right now. I’ve always been the type to push back until it becomes absolutely necessary to take something because I know it will be a lifetime commitment. At this moment, I feel like I don’t need the Trelegy quite yet and I wonder if it will make things worse in the long run. Or, is it too soon as I’m not that advanced in my disease yet. Too, I’m only seeing my GP right now. Should I see a specialist? For reference, I’m 64. Thanks for any feedback. Happy to have found this site. I was searching for why I have rib pain and it brought me here.
