MIKE:
I think it’s important for people to ask questions.

TEXT ONSCREEN: Your voice is important

MIKE:
You know, when you go to the doctor, ask, ask, ask, and keep pushing instead of just sitting there listening to what the person tells you.

TEXT ONSCREEN:
Real patients who were taking TRELEGY at the time of filming and one of their caregivers. GSK paid them for their time and expenses for sharing their unique experiences. Individual results may vary.

MELISSA:
I started writing down questions. I had a little notebook.

MIKE:
My wife just goes with me 'cause I don't ask the right questions and I don't come home with the right answers. 

MELISSA:
Ah ah, there you go.

SUSAN:
I did advocate for Mike that we needed to find out what else was available out there to get him where he's not going up and down so many times.

Individual results may vary. 

RODNEY:
I’ve found that you’ve got to be your own advocate, for one thing because your doctor can only treat you for what you tell him. For one thing, how you feel. And I was always one with, well, you know what? My doctor knows best, he’ll give me what he thinks I should have. But you should always...

Rodney

RODNEY:
...ask him: Is there anything out there that you think could help me better than what I’m taking right now? I never did that…till recently.

Individual results may vary.

DR. CORBRIDGE:
So we really are looking for a…

TEXT ONSCREEN: How can patients be better partners in treatment?

DR. CORBRIDGE:
…very open exchange—truthful information about where they stand.

DR. CORBRIDGE:
And also to be able to remember as best you can the life events between clinic visits. 

TEXT ONSCREEN:
Dr. Corbridge is a physician and was a GSK employee at time of filming.

DR. CORBRIDGE:
So did you have an exacerbation? Can you remember that, can you report that to me? What were your activities like? What were your symptoms like over that interval? How many rescue inhalations patients are doing. Because that helps me very much to then decide, you know, what next steps are most appropriate.

TEXT ONSCREEN:
A flare-up (or exacerbation) is the worsening of COPD symptoms for several days or weeks that may require steroids, antibiotics, or hospital stays.
