I find these warning unusual (Posted late on 05/01 from 04/30)

When Combivent Respimat is prescribed for elders with congestive heart failure, I find these warnings peculiar. Let’s see if you do, too.
Be sure to discuss your use of a Combivent inhaler with your health care provider if you have any of the following conditions, as Combivent may make them worse:
• Abnormal heart rhythm
• Diabetes
• Enlarged prostate
• Epilepsy or other seizure disorder
• Glaucoma
• Heart disease or congestive heart failure
• Liver or kidney disease
• Overactive thyroid
My question is why, oh why, would anyone administer this drug for a health condition that is warned against using this drug? Very confusing to me! I guess I must have to do some more research to figure this out.
Sometimes I have to wonder about drugs. Of course much of what is concerning me is the fact that human beings are human beings. We do the best we can with what we have, but that is the best we have to offer.
Perhaps the only reason that I can see for a doctor prescribing this particular drug warned about to people diagnosed with congestive heart failure to someone combating congestive heart failure is just like when there is a fire and they stick a fire stick down to shock the flames and stop them. Perhaps it will shock a person already dealing and draw the symptoms out? I really don’t know, but for one trying to show that With Age Comes Respect, I certainly do have many more questions on this particular topic!
