role of inhaled steroids in COPD
New evidence helps clarify the role of inhaled steroids in COPD.
We used to think that inhaled steroids didn't have much of a place in COPD treatment...since COPD isn't inflammatory like asthma.
But inhaled steroids are being used more frequently in recent years. COPD symptoms are difficult to treat. Adding inhaled steroids to other meds can improve symptoms...especially at high doses and in severe cases.
