Pulmonary Function Test

Pulmonary Function Test

Good morning everyone,
My question is when you go for a Pulmonary Function Test do you have to stop taking your inhaler 48hrs before the test.
This scares me a lot because 48hrs is a long time without any protection.
I've started using Trelegy and i find it really helps me with my breathing.
I would like to hear from anyone who's had a Pulmonary Function Test while using Trelegy.
Thanks,
Carmel

@A MyCOPDTeam Member whatever the program name services are available for Srs to assist in helping us omg yes me I’m a Sr us stay in our homes as well as younger disabled . It dries my ass that women in there 80’s don’t know about such things . The dam Drs should be telling them about it and referring them . The only way sone even find out is after a hospital stay and the social worker or nurses ask questions like do you live alone ? If someone’s in their 80’s and has a chronic condition like COPD this is just wrong ! I’m very passionate about advocacy as maybe you can tell .
