COPD - Medications

Doctors usually prescribe medications to help treat COPD. Medications used for COPD treatment include those that control COPD and those used to provide quick relief during an episode of worsening symptoms.

If your doctor prescribes medications, it is important that you use them as directed. Do not stop taking them unless told to do so by your doctor. Otherwise worsening symptoms could occur.

Each person has different medication needs. That’s why it is important to discuss your medications with your doctor.
