Should The Medicine For Shortness Of Breath Still Be Taken If It Is Not Shortness Of Breath?
I was given medicine for shortness of breath, so in the writing on the medicine I was told to take it 3 times a day. The question is, if I am not short of breath, should I take it as recommended?
Thanks for the question. I'm sorry I can't help give advice on the use of drugs because there is no information about the cause of your shortness of breath and there is no information about what drugs you are taking. Shortness of breath is a symptom that can occur in several health conditions and the treatment for each health condition is different. The following are some of the causes of shortness of breath:
stomach acid disease
heart function disorders
kidney function disorders
To find out the cause of your complaint, further information about this complaint is needed, a doctor's physical examination, and other supporting examinations. (eg blood tests, sputum examination, x-rays, spirometry, and others). Treatment for each of the conditions mentioned varies greatly depending on the underlying health condition. You should again consult with the doctor who treats you so that the advice given to you is right because the doctor will examine and know what happened to you. Meanwhile, continue the treatment recommended by the doctor and avoid the triggers of shortness of breath.
Hope this information is useful.
