so mom just got out of the doctors office. i had told her to call me once she was out and so she did.
the doctor put her on an antibiotic and some steroids. she has a chest infection that is aggravating her COPD.
she has to take the steroids for 5 days, she is to take 8 of them each day. i told her she is probably not going to be able to sleep while she is taking them,they have a habit of making you wired.
she asked about going on a nebuliser but the doctor said she would have to get her own gp to authorise that. the doctor she saw today was just an emergency on call doctor.
has anyone taken or is taking steroids for chest related issues? do they give you side effects? I’d love to hear from anyone who has experience of taking them.
