Need more rescue med: Post Bronchitis Bronchospasm can cause lingering cough for unto 3 months. More with people withRAD( asthma) So Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) is not enough. Prednisone has helped you so you may need another short Tapering dose of Prednisone and Albuterol Inhaler. If you have Bacterial Infevtion with coughing , then Doxycyclin or Azithromycin like drug would be helpful.
