In addition, you should have compression and drainage treatments to help get rid of that mucus in your airways. Pulmonary physical therapy would also be helpful. I hope you don't smoke, if you do, please stop during this time. Drink lots of water and take Mucinex (guaifenesin) to break up mucus so you can get rid of it easier. You also need adequate rest. ...Read more

The : The purpose of the Prednisolone for her pneumonia is to decrease the inflammation in her lungs to make it easier for her to breathe while the antibiotic kills the bacteria causing the infection. If she is unable to take this medication and appears to be in respiratory distress, you should return to the er. Otherwise, call her doctor for a follow-up visit as soon as possible. They will be able to evaluate her and decide whether she really needs the Prednisolone or if there is another medication that may be useful such as albuterol treatments or injectable steroid. Good luck! ...Read more
