Asthma and COPD both involve the inflammation of the airways in your lungs that adversely obstructs the airflow. While the symptoms of both can be similar, they may progress differently. The signs of asthma change often, or it may show no symptom at all. But COPD patients may reflect symptoms beyond the age of 40. At Westmount Pharmasave, we aim to reduce both these conditions' effects to the lowest level possible. Our professionals are qualified and experienced to manage asthma and COPD, to help you move towards a healthy life.
