Hi. My husband has copd and asthma. Usually when he gets a very deep congestion it leads to pneumonia if not treated. He will also get delerium. It starts out working on him slowly and takes few days to a week before the delerium sets in. I can see it coming by his actions, temperament and conversations. I immediately start giving him Guaifenesin. Generic if possible. He is only 49 but his lungs are in terrible shape from breathing in formaldehyde. I have started noticing that when he gets like this he will lose control of his urine in his sleep. He has problems with his prostate at times. I'm curious if this happens to other males? I mostly see online where it is females over 60. Surely he is not the only male this happens to. Maybe men don't talk about it because of being embarrassed.
