Bronchitis is considered chronic if you cough and produce excess mucus most days for three months in a year, two years in a row.

Can benzos cause respiratory problems to those with no known copd?

In too high a dose: Benzodiazepines are vastly safer than barbiturates and barbiturate-like drugs because their activities stop at the upper part of the brain and do not, in therapeutic doses, extend to the respiratory centers in the midbrain. Together with alcohol, opiates, other depressant drugs, and in very high doses (or iv) they can and do cause problems, even without copd. Normally, in usual doses, they don't. ...Read more

Having respiratory distress and feeling palpitations in chest ... took 20 of Ativan 0.5mg pills Cause? 911? HTN PCOS Zestoretic (lisinopril and hydrocholorthiazide) Ativan Sertraline

Call your doctor: You have taken a very large dose of Ativan (lorazepam) which could be dangerous. Unless you are habituated to this drug and accustomed to taking such big doses, there is a risk of suppression of your breathing. I urge you to contact your physician immediately. The drug dose you have taken is of more concern than the palpitations. ...Read more

Yes: Got to the er for chest pain. Go to the er for respiratory failure (sob, difficulty breathing, air hunger) although it could also be cardiac failure secondary to a heart attack or angina. Combination of COPD and heart disease is not good so must see cardiologist and pulmonologist/or internist (if comfortable in managing sever respiratory problems). Past h/o a trach makes him high risk. ...Read more

I had respiratory failure (cyanosis) during general anaesthetic.The doctor thinks it was anaphylaxis. I am now diagnosed with both COPD stage 2 and asthma.Were these conditions the more likely cause?

I had respiratory failure (cyanosis) during general anaesthetic.The doctor thinks it was anaphylaxis.  I am now diagnosed with both COPD stage 2 and asthma.Were these conditions the more likely cause?

COPD is deadly: Anaphylaxis can happen with any drug, but acute postoperative respiratory failure is more commonly caused by underlying lung disease. Stopping smoking several weeks before surgery decreases risk for complications. Of course, the best thing anyone can do for better health is to stop smoking, especially those with lung disease. Smoking with lung disease is like rubbing dirt into a wound. Stop ASAP. ...Read more

Can losartan cause reflux?Would stoppage get rid of the problem? Never had reflux problems before starting hbp meds. Was on lisinopril b4 same problem

GERD and losartan: I would talk to your physician (p) about starting a proton pump inhibitor, such as prilosec, to see if your reflux (r) problem is resolved with its use. Losartan-like drugs have very few adverse effects and r is not commonly known to happen. The fact that you had symptoms of r on Lisinopril is evidence that your r is not related to any BP medication. Speak to your physician for more information. ...Read more
