I find that the fatigue hits almost immediately after the attack, while the depression and despair hit during the attack.
In the ER today, I could feel the despair/ helplessness/hopelessness hit like a wave, and had to fight mentally to overcome it and stay calm. My attack took place out of town, and I had to walk 15 minutes to the ER, as I couldn’t talk on the phone (in my hand!!) nor would anyone respond to my attempts to flag down help. I truly didn’t think I would make it–inhaler didn’t even make a dent.
Chippenham, UK – 5 September 2016: Vectura Group plc (LSE: VEC) ("Vectura"), an industry-leading inhaled airways disease focused business, confirms the announcement by our alliance partner Novartis that new analyses from the head-to-head FLAME study confirmed that Ultibro® Breezhaler® is a more effective option for patients at risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) flare-ups (exacerbations) than Seretide®, across different patient sub-groups1-10. These findings are being presented at the 2016 European Respiratory Society (ERS) International Congress this week in London, UK.
The absolute bioavailability of fluticasone propionate for each of the available inhaler devices has been estimated from within and between study comparisons of inhaled and intravenous pharmacokinetic data. In healthy adult subjects the absolute bioavailability has been estimated for fluticasone propionate Accuhaler/Diskus (%), fluticasone propionate Diskhaler (%) and fluticasone propionate Evohaler (%) respectively. In patients with asthma or COPD a lesser degree of systemic exposure to inhaled fluticasone propionate has been observed.
