email from Lung Clinic Specialist Nurse

Rachael received a follow up email from D. D has tried to get in touch with the Cystic Fibrosis nurses but they are not available yet. She will keep trying.
D has spoken to Dr C about Rachael's secretions and mucus plugging that they had discussed at their meeting. Rachael had said that she felt better after taking Lorazepam even though this does not affect the mucus. D said that mucus can cause laryngospasm and Lorazepam can reverse this as it relaxes the tracheal/laryngal muscle.
Dr C said that Rachael should not worry about taking Lorazepam as she is on a very small dose and it has positive physiological benefits. Dr C recommends that Rachael doubles the dose of Lorazepam if she needs to.
D went on to say that that Dr R is not in work this week but she will speak to him about the Riluzole when he comes back.
