In brief: Need right meds

You may not be given the right medication.
Lots of triggers for so called"bronchitis, reactive airways disease, asthma etc".Oftentimes, patients are treated with several rounds of antibiotics, cough meds suppressants/expectorants to no avail.If you are treated with broncodilators and inhaled steroids, then maybe it was not taken long enough which can cause recurrence/relapses.
