Add A Puff Here And A Couple There

I went for my quarterly appointment with my sarcoidosis doctor this week, and my lung function is down. That the first time in a long time. My doctor thinks that it just be because I had the flu in December, and that my air passages are still inflamed, so she has changed my medication a bit.

In addition to increasing the dosage on my Flovent, she added a new medicine called Spiriva. It’s another inhaler that I use once a day, and I have not picked it up from the pharmacy as yet, but it looks a little complicated. Anyhow, I will get used to it. The side effects are not as bad as most medicines, but it can cause decreased urination. That is funny, because I now pee so much because of my diuretics.
