A pharmacist is a health care professional who has taken specialized training in drug uses and roles, potential drug interactions and side effects. He or she may work in a hospital, nursing home, store pharmacy or other setting to fill prescriptions, educate patients and monitor their ongoing care. In treating patients a pharmacist may also educate them on over-the-counter vs. prescription options, avoiding alcohol while taking certain medications and avoiding drug interactions. While there’s no cure for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, if treated early and appropriately, many patients can maintain a good quality of life. The majority of cases of COPD are directly related to cigarette smoking, so by quitting smoking, you can reduce or prevent symptoms.
