About 10 weeks ago I was dx with copd after suffering breathlessness, 78% so just gone out of mild into moderate. I was prescibed ventolin & told if I was using it every day to come back...which I did, the prescibed breezhaler, a preventer, & told to come back if I was still having to use ventolin...which I did lol this morning & then prescibed serevent 2 puffs x twice a day & continue with breezhaler & ventolin when & if required.......on reading the leaflet for serevent it says not to use if taking atenolol, which I do for my blood pressure ( for the past 25 years in fact), so I daren't take it! Going to pharmacist in the morning to ask his advice. Does anyone on here take Serevent & atenolol.....blimey I've just gone from mild to moderate, wouldn't think it would be this hard to control (rolls eyes)The breezhaler has helped with the breathlessness on exhertion, And I do exercise as much as possible(lost my dad to copd), I can do 10k each day on my exercise bike, it's the congestion at rest that get's me....waffling, sorry, Question is : are you on serevent and atenolol , or any beta- blocker
