My father aged 52 has been diagnosed with COPD.He had been suffering from severe cough for sometime.Doctor advised him unicontin 400 daily at night.Cough has been much reduced now.I want to know is it really COPD because doctor didn't do spirometry test and my father doesn't smoke . Should I go for spirometry test .Also are there any other alternatives to unicontin 400 since I have read there are many side effects .
