I would like some input on this subject as to whether your medications are less effective if you use a mask vs. using the mouthpiece.
There was one medication I am on that left me shaky and in worse shape after I took it than I was before. I decided to try a mask with that med. With the mask, I don't experience any of this shakiness and breathlessness.
For my other two meds I use the mouthpiece, but I decided to try the mask this morning for those also. The treatment is definitely so much more pleasant and relaxing with the mask, and I actually do feel better this morning than I have in days. However, I'm not ready to put that down to using the mask over mouthpiece. I've learned with this disease it's just all over the place.
I take a total of 8 treatments every day, and 9 if I have to use my albuteral. Am I sacrificing the effectiveness of the medication by using the mask?
