I visited my pulmonary doctor today and he was overjoyed at the improvement in my COPD issues from the last treatment, at which time he prescribed prednisone 20 mg daily for 20 days.

Immediate difference

I immediately noticed the decline in the flares of coughing and mucus. I now take 20 mg of prednisone three days per week, and Trelegy once per day. So far, my quality of life has improved 100%. I am 88 years of age, no longer need a concentrator or nebulizer, and feel great.
