Hi. I've was recently diagnosed with possible asthma or COPD. From the research I've done, it seems more likely I have COPD since I'm 55 and asthma tends to develop when your younger. I have a second breathing scheduled soon which will hopefully tell me for sure.
I was prescribed Asmanex, but it caused me to have constant phlegm and a constant cough. It also caused my chest to hurt, so I've been using a rescue inhaler to relieve my symptoms.
I know there are many other maintenance inhalers on the market and they all may have side effects, but Asmanex was making me feel terrible. Does anyone have any recommendations on inhalers they prefer over others?
