Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Last few days I've had a large build up of phlegm in my lungs and a lot of caughing. Wheezing that won't go away. Started Remicade 2 months ago.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
my doctor has given me daliresp for my asthma and bronchitis. It is causing problems with my diarrhea and my crohn's . will this diminish with time or should I discontinue before I exacerbate my crohn's. I still take my prednisone which helps with asthma and crohn's. Trying to improve my asthma with deliresp I fear will create grave problems with my crohn's. I have other meds that also help me with my asthma.
