Rsp infection x2weeks.Zpak..Coughing up green mucus a week after stopping zpak. Never felt completely "well"now still sick and mucus is green again!
Antibiotics for URIs: It's not surprising that you didn't get better. Most upper respiratory infections (uris) are caused by viruses.

If you have no fever and are breathing normally, you probably just need cough medicine. ...Read more

Had broncotis and after a month still have clear mucus which makes me cough and sometimes laryngitis Should I worry?
Post nasal drip: There are two common causes of lingering cough after bronchitis in patients with a normal chest x-ray; (1) upper airway cough syndrome (postnasal drip syndrome) and (2) underlying wheezing or asthma. The former is related to inflammation of the upper airways and the latter is related to inflammation of the lower airways. Both can cause a hoarse voice.

COPD exacerbation: What you describe sounds like you have triggered a tendency to irritation of your bronchial tubes. The underlying problem may come from past smoking. At this time, avoid chemicals, perfumes, dairy, smoke, and spicy foods to decrease mucous production. Use of an inhaler could help if you wheeze. Humidifier will help the mucous to come out. Cough suppressant may help. Discuss with your mds. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Bronchitis for 2 weeks.On 3rd day of z pak (azithromycin). Still have fevers, cough, huff and puffing, a horrible soar throat started and runny nose.What should I do?
Finish antibiotics: Go see your doc, especially if by "huff and puffing" you mean "short of breath" or difficulty breathing, in which case, you should go back sooner than later. You've listed z pak, Aldactone (spironolactone) & flexeril, none of which help w/breathing per se. Azithromycin has a long half-life so you only need to finish the pack but it will stay in your system for a 10-14d. New study says average cough can last 18d. ...Read more
