Respiratory Care Week (October 24-30)

Time to kick your cough to the curb!

The time of year has come when the cooler weather makes breathing a little more difficult. Are you tired of coughing so much? Do you already have an inhaler or inhalers at home? Is your breathing waking you up at night? Don’t let your asthma and/or COPD ruin your pumpkin festivities!

Did you know that you can still slow (and almost halt) the progression of lung disease by stopping smoking? Even if you have already been diagnosed with asthma and/or COPD? Most products to help curb cravings and lessen the burden of nicotine/cigarette smoking are available over the counter (OTC), so you don’t even have to make another trip to the doctor’s office.

If you are ready to put your lungs first and kick your cough to the curb, start at Moose Pharmacy! Your Moose pharmacists are here to help you better understand your inhaler(s) and make suggestions to you and/or your doctor to improve your lung function! Call to schedule a time to sit down with your inhaler(s) or come on in if you want to know more about things to make your lungs happy and healthy!

Bullet Points:

  • Proper inhaler technique and understanding when to use your inhaler(s) is key to controlling symptoms of asthma and/or COPD.
  • Your pharmacists are here to help you take the steps to stop smoking.
  • Having asthma and/or COPD does not mean that you have to suffer from a bothersome cough or poor sleep!!
