Hi,

Noted your history about your history Father having COPD, tried with Aerotide, Asmosol and Ventolin inhalers, now unable to sleep due to coughing tried Loratidine and nebulized.
I would advise you the following in such a case:
- Consult a Pulmonologist for proper clinical evaluation, examination and investigations.
- CT scan of chest is mandatory to rule out other causes.
- Pulmonologist will help to add on specialised treatment for the cause found.
- Pulmonary function tests.
- Vitamin estimates for D and A .
-Replacement of such deficiency really works well in some patients dramatically.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant, ENT & General Surgeon
