Hi, Julie,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you are having Asthmatic bronchitis.
Continue the medicine course.
Wait till course is completed.
Mean while continue use of nebulizer for getting relief from breathlessness.
Go for deep breathing exercise.
Ok and bye.

It is not clear if you really have COPD. What is your age? Are you a smoker?

If amoxycillin and prednisolone is not working, you need to change antibiotics. Treat the COPD attack and then maintain baseline with supportive inhalers.
