When you cough every day and have a distinct wheeze and bronchial secretions, what medications should you take?

When you cough every day and have a distinct wheeze and bronchial secretions, what medications should you take?

Persistant asthma: Guidelines say start w/ low dose inhaled steroid and as needed rescue inhaler (albuterol). Combo inhaler (advair symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) dulera) might be overkill, but could start w them and ease back when better. Singular less attractive unless allergy a problem too. Should get PFT to assess lung function, and follow up to check progress. Allergy testing for root causes. ...Read more

Is it normal for someone with bronchial pneumonia to cough up a foam-like spit?

Is it normal for someone with bronchial pneumonia to cough up a foam-like spit?

It is common!: It is common for patients with bronchopneumonia to spit up mucus; it is actually healthy to do that. When you have some bacterial infection of the lungs and airway as it happens with pneumonia, the immune system fights them by creating mucus which can washout the bacteria. It is helpful to cough these secretions up. ...Read more

I'm on Oxycodone HCL 10 MG for post-surgery. I have severe Bronchial cough & can't stop coughing. They gave me Mucinex/codeine syrup. Can I take both?

I'm on Oxycodone HCL 10 MG for post-surgery. I have severe Bronchial cough & can't stop coughing. They gave me Mucinex/codeine syrup. Can I take both?

Yes, carefully: As you probably know, those are both narcotics. The codeine will also block pain. While the Oxycodone won't help the cough that much. So..I recommend starting with the cough Meds, so the pain isn't worse by coughing. Then, if pain continues, add the Oxycodone. ...Read more

If a z-pack was unsuccessful in  treating bronchitis, is there logic in a dr giving another one for a 2nd round?  Bronchial spasms, wheezing,  cough..

No.: This does not make good sense. Most bronchitis is viral and does not respond to antibiotics. A second course will generally not do any better. Unless you had signs or symptoms that specifically suggested bacterial infection i would hold off on antibiotics and consider other agents for the wheezing and cough. ...Read more
