Get Organized

Organize your medication with a pill box, a chart, or around routine events like meals or brushing your teeth to make it easier to remember to take your medication and easier to tell if you’ve missed a dose.

Check With Your Insurance

Check with your insurance plan to see which are the preferred medications on the plan, and see if your health care provider thinks your disease can be managed well with those medications. Using preferred medications may save you money.

Follow Your Doctor’s Orders

Do not skip your medication or skimp on your doses. Not taking the right amount of your medication can make your COPD worse and may result in an expensive hospitalization.

Rescue Medications Can Help

Use inhalers and nebulizers properly so you get the full benefit of the medication. Your healthcare provider will show you how to use your inhaler(s) and/or nebulizer.
