Mother aged 85, having COPD, heart enlargement and slight depression taking Foracort 100, inhaler/nibulizer, Cardac H 2.5, anxiety medicine. She does not take or like salty vegetables, drink just about 400 ml water, she is vegetarian, prefer sweet little bit, very little diet, She takes inhalers through nibulizer now. Despite taking less water, she goes for frequent urination..
Recently for a week she is having acute breathing problem. After urination the breathing problem becomes worse. Even while seating or eating sometimes she has breathing problem. Most of the medicine clashes with anxiety medicine which are Oleanz 2.5 one tablet , and Veniz 37.5 one cap daily. Earlier she was taking Anxit 2,5 thrice a day which has been discontinued now and rarely given one tablet SOS.
We give her Oxygen through Oxygenertor also when the problem persists.Kindly suggest something for acute breathing problem. We do not wish to operate or give her heavy doses of medicine as it does not suit her.
